President Trump teased a future victory in the great state of Nevada in 2024, predicting a “historic landslide” in the Silver State as their February caucus and next year’s national general election loom closer.
“Together, we’re going to WIN Nevada in a HISTORIC LANDSLIDE,” he declared.
The president’s comments were delivered in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night at a Team Trump Commit to Caucus Event. It was the second of two back-to-back speeches for the president on Saturday. On Sunday, the president is scheduled to travel to Sioux City, Iowa, where he will speak again.
During his speech on Saturday night, President Trump thanked the supporters who gathered to hear his remarks, noting, “This is ALL about supporters. We want to get out, we want to CAUCUS!”
He hammered his beleaguered GOP opponents, acknowledging former Vice President Mike Pence’s Saturday announcement that he would be dropping out of the presidential race. “Mike Pence just left; did you hear that?” he commented. “…We have others leaving.”
Trump pointed to the glowing endorsements from recently dropped-out Republican candidates Perry Johnson and Larry Elder. He joked that they probably reasoned, “’We’re not going to beat him [Trump] so we might as well endorse him!’”
President Trump said that the country was “going to hell in a handbasket” and urged prospective caucus-goers to show up strong in February and cast their vote for Trump.
The president also highlighted the incredible “spirit” that he has witnessed during his reelection bid, stating that he was seeing more support and energy “than we’ve ever seen.”
“Every time you see a building, a house – they’ve got the TRUMP sign,” he said.
