Trump “injects energy” at a rally in Pennsylvania ahead of Tuesday’s election

Latrobe (United States) (AFP) – Thousands of Donald Trump supporters rallied in Pennsylvania on Saturday to join forces with their “president” and support a “huge red wave” of Republicans in the US midterm elections.
According to Dixie Chappelle, 49, a kindergarten teacher, Tuesday’s claim is “leverage” for a billionaire’s possible candidacy for the 2024 election as she left the congregation with her daughter, sister and parents.
“He’s putting energy into this campaign,” added the woman, who drove four hours from Virginia to hear the former president. “We need people to be elected to follow the march towards 2024,” she added.
She was among the few who didn’t wear a red hat or a printed T-shirt but a black jacket as she joined the upcoming crowd to cheer on Donald Trump, the Republican midterm campaign manager whose supporters hope he will will run for the next presidential election.
Mentioning this as his candidacy, Trump said, “In a very, very short time you will be very, very happy,” ignited the audience and stood impatiently. Trump said he wanted to delay announcing his candidacy to “maintain interest” in Republican candidates.
“If you want to end the destruction of our country and save the American Dream, you must vote Republican this Tuesday to create a huge red wave,” he said on the tarmac at an airport in La Trobe, near Pittsburgh.
At the end of a speech that lasted more than two hours, with many leaving early, the billionaire stressed that we are facing “the most important election in the history of the United States.” “We will take back the House of Representatives and the Senate,” he added.
– “very happy” –
And the former Republican president is leading the last few days of the campaign with intense momentum, and his speeches this week in key states like Pennsylvania could change the face of Congress in favor of Republicans and wrest a majority from Joe Biden.
Donald Trump adopts anti-Joe Biden and Barack Obama rhetoric with his focus on immigration and crime. Biden and Obama previously spoke from Philadelphia in eastern Pennsylvania.
Biden and Obama support Democrat John Fetterman in the Senate election, while Trump supports Fetterman’s opponent Mehmet Oz.
Thousands of Trump supporters interacted with his speech, chanting slogans in his support while their eyes were fixed on the platform where the former president is standing.
Only he deserves the presidency
Trump has repeatedly called the 2020 election rigged, despite ample evidence to the contrary, and ended his speech to the beat of a piece of music.
Norm Volpe came with a group of motorcyclists to support Trump, one of his many supporters of an electoral conspiracy theory that has been repeatedly denied. But the most important thing for him are the “crazy prices”.
“Prices have doubled from today to three years ago! Food, oil, everything!” he said, wearing a T-shirt in the colors of the American flag.
The 57-year-old metalworker called for Democrats to be punished for it. “The price of everything has gone up since they took power,” he added.
And Leslie Boswell of the amphitheater in the rural Pennsylvania plains, wearing a red T-shirt with “Trump 2020” written on her shoulders, said she came “to enjoy and to vote for Trump,” and she can’t wait until 2024 to support him at the ballot box.
“He’s bringing God back to our country, he’s brought prices down and he’s done everything he promised,” she said. The young mother and housewife emphasized that he was “the only one who is worthy of the presidency”.
