As the former president continued his baseless allegations of voter fraud, Senator Romney likens Trump’s rally to professional wrestling.
“My fellow Americans, our movement is far from over. In fact, our struggle has only just begun.”
Former President Trump’s return to the rally scene on Saturday resonated with a familiar tone … his first campaign-style event since leaving office … resurfacing allegations of baseless fraud and what he calls “the crime of the century”.
The event held near Cleveland supported former White House aide Max Miller, who hopes to take a congressional seat from Representative Anthony Gonzalez.
Gonzalez was one of 10 members of the Republican House who voted to impeach Trump for his role in the Jan.6 Capitol uprising – nine of them facing main challengers with Trump backing.
But instead of focusing on efforts to push his supporters to the polls, Trump focused on his lost election …
This … even after dozens of officials, some in his own court, failed to provide any evidence to support his allegations of massive voter fraud. His camp is closely monitoring an audit in Arizona, which they say will provide evidence … although officials there have repeatedly said their election was problem-free.
Still, supporters including MyPillow founder Mike Lindell and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene are supporting the former president as he embarks on a series of appearances.
But at least one Republican rolls his eyes … Sen. Mitt Romney on CNN Sunday comparing the event to the World Wrestling Federation.
“It’s entertaining, but it’s not real. I think people recognize it’s a lot of spectacle and exhilaration but it’s not going anywhere. The election is over. It was fair.”
Trump’s next stop is Sarasota, Florida for another July 3 rally. Then he heads to the southern border to protest President Biden’s immigration policies.
