On the heels of a monster rally in Pickens, South Carolina, on Saturday, President Donald Trump seems to have already sealed the deal for winning the 2024 presidential nomination.
Trump’s appearance in the small town of Pickens, South Carolina, over the weekend was a powerful illustration of the political magnetism of the 45th President of the United States, who drew tens of thousands of people in the blazing heat of July.
According to Politico, at least 50,000 people packed into Pickens’ main street to hear the president deliver patriot remarks in honor of Independence Day, where he touched on his 2024 campaign, “crooked” Joe Biden, and the battle for liberty within the United States.
He encouraged Americans to “charge forward to victory” in MAGA’s quest to reclaim the White House. His promises to restore American greatness clearly resonated with South Carolinians, who showed up in droves to support his reelection bid.
South Carolina is the home state of two Republican presidential candidates in the 2024 race – Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and former Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
However, the Palmetto State has proven to be unshakeable Trump country as the president was polling hugely ahead of his political opponents last week headed into the event.
RSBN previously reported that Trump won 40 percent of support among South Carolina GOP primary voters, according to data from Race to the WH. In the same survey, Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., garnered 19 percent.
During his remarks, Trump attacked DeSantis for his voting history regarding the plight of American farmers, prompting the audience to boo the Florida governor.
“DeSanctus opposed my China tariffs and he opposed helping our farmers,” Trump said, referring to the “$28 billion” he brought in for American farmers via tariffs on the foreign country.
On Saturday, Trump vowed to “TOTALLY OBLITERATE” the Deep State and make America great again.
