Donald Trump has decided to campaign against Republicans who voted to impeach him for inciting the January 6 riots that left five people dead, including a Capitol Hill police officer.
Former US President Donald Trump is due to hold a so-called “revenge rally” Saturday in Ohio against a Republican who voted for his impeachment in the aftermath of the violence on Capitol Hill. As the majority of Republicans sided with Trump in his historic second impeachment, seven GOP Senators and three House Republicans decided to vote against the party line, earning the former president’s wrath.
Trump has decided to campaign against Republicans who voted to impeach him for inciting the January 6 riots that left five people dead, including a Capitol Hill police officer. One of them is House Representative Anthony Gonzalez, who is seeking re-election in 2022, and former White House aide Max Miller became his challenger for the primaries after Trump approved him.
“We are giving huge support,” Trump told conservative Newsmax on Friday. “False Republicans, anyone who voted for impeachment doesn’t get it. But there weren’t too many of them. And I think most of them are being… primary right now, so that’s good. I will help their opponent.
In his first public rally since the deadly attack on Capitol Hill, Trump aims to strengthen his allies, rebuke his enemies, and consolidate his influence over the Republican Party. Trump has pledged to campaign against the 10 Republicans who voted for his impeachment and also backed a main challenger to Senator Lisa Murkowski, the only one of the seven Republicans in the Senate to be re-elected in 2022.
The Ohio event will be the first of three public appearances, followed by a trip to the US-Mexico border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott on June 30 and a rally in Sarasota, Fla. On July 3. .
With his eyes on 2024, Trump should repeat his false claims about the 2020 presidential election results he lost to Joe Biden. He told Newsmax he would make an announcement for 2024 “in the not too distant future.”
“Right now I’m helping a lot of people take office, and we’re fighting the Deep State, and we’re fighting [the] radical left. They’re after me. They’re after Rudy [Giuliani], they’re after you , probably, ”he added.
