2-Mile Line Of Cars Forms Outside Trump Kick-Off Rally As City Of Waco Predicts 15,000+
The city of Waco is estimating at least 15,000 attendees for Donald Trump's 2024 presidential campaign kickoff rally at Waco regional airport on Saturday. While the venue is relatively small as far as airports go, the location was chosen because it's the most geographically central point in Texas relative to large population centers.
But this didn't stop mainstream media from making incredibly superficial comparisons to the Branch Davidians while claiming "Waco is hugely symbolic on the far right." The Trump campaign supposedly has a "secret agenda" - USA Today tries to claim in an absurd hit-piece based purely on speculation and zero sourcing. Meanwhile, a large pre-dawn line was already evident Saturday morning to get into the rally...
Saturday in Waco marks first full-fledged rally of Trump's 2024 campaign and it's attracting national attention especially given the arrest warrant hanging over him, unprecedented for any ex-President.
Trump grabbed headlines Friday by writing the following on his social media site: "What kind of person can charge another person, in this case a former President of the United States … and leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination, with a Crime, when it is known by all that NO Crime has been committed, & also known that potential death & destruction in such a false charge could be catastrophic for our Country?"
The Trump rally in Waco begins at 2 pm but supporters of the former president are already showing up by the thousands! 👉 INFO: https://t.co/8pEw1Hjdsc pic.twitter.com/1dKJx2FUbW— KWTX News 10 (@kwtx) March 25, 2023
