Former President Donald Trump will hold two post-election rallies in Iowa and Georgia in the coming weeks, with details likely to focus on the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
Trump announced the rallies, which is part of his Save America campaign, during an interview on the Todd Starnes show where he discussed the crisis in Afghanistan on Monday, Aug. 30.
Details of the events are being worked out, but the 45th president is expected to campaign on the Biden administration’s failed policies on the Afghanistan plight, immigration, and crime, according to One American News Network.
During the interview, Trump said congressional Republicans lack unity and strong leadership, which allows Democrats to implement some misguided policies, and that Democrats are doing a poor job.
“I think they’re worse than Democrats. I think they’re communists, if you want to know the truth, because I really think they hate our country. Our country can’t go on like this,” Trump said.
“We’re going to Iowa, we’re going to Georgia, we’re going to some others. You have to see the anger and enthusiasm, by the way, the anger of the people,” he said.
Trump’s announcement of the coming rallies continues to stoke speculation about his bid for the White House in 2024.
According to The Hill, Iowa is a crucial state on the election calendar, traditionally holding the nation’s first nominating contest, while Georgia is a key swing state that has been the epicenter of Trump’s claims of voter fraud. Earlier in August, Trump hired two top GOP operatives in Iowa.
At present, Trump maintains the top spot of most polls of potential 2024 primary candidates, which will help him win the GOP presidential nomination if he decides to make a third White House run.
