Trump In The Bronx: Thousands Expected To Show Up For Massive Rally Today


by Tyler Durden

With Donald Trump stuck in New York for his ‘hush money’ trial, which now rests in the hands of the jury (while having imploded in the court of public opinion), the former president is holding what’s expected to be a massive rally on Thursday in the Bronx amid huge gains in polling among black and latino voters.

The Trump campaign expects a crowd of up to 3,500 people, according to the NY Post. It will mark the first time he’s campaigned in his home state since a 2016 event in Buffalo.

Several polls suggest as many as 23% of black voters and 46% of latino voters could cast their ballot for Trump – a huge boost from the 6% of black and 28% of latino voters who supported him in 2016, which grew to 8% and 32% respectively in 2020.

As the Epoch Times noted last month, support for the Democratic Party among black and Hispanic voters has been eroding for years.

The percentage of black voters who “lean Democrat” topped out at near 90 percent in 2008 but fell to 66 percent by 2023, the lowest level yet recorded according to data from Gallup’s annual polling on the subject.

Meanwhile, the percentage of black voters who “lean Republican” rose from single digits to 19 percent over the same period.

Of note, the Bronx hasn’t backed a Republican candidate for White House in 100 years when Calvin Coolidge won every single NY county in 1920 and 1924.

Meanwhile, Trump’s Thursday rally comes weeks after a massive rally in the Jersey Shore town of Wildwood -drawing an estimated 100,000 supporters – and days after Trump supporters were seen marching in the South Bronx over the weekend.

Except, this may backfire bigly

Indeed, the Trump campaign has been making the best of the former president’s situation.

“While he is in court, we are using New York City as a backdrop,” said Trump campaign spokesperson Danielle Alvarez in a statement to the Post.

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” another source close to the campaign told the outlet.

Everything about the left’s fascist lawfare campaign has backfired and I hope this Bronx rally drives the point home to the Democrats just how failed they are. To paraphrase what Yamamoto said after December 7th, 1941, all the Democrats have done is awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve. With lawfare failing, Democrats are going to be reduced to only election fraud to win in 2024.

You better hope you don’t get caught again.
