The former president Donald Trump defied political conventions by visiting one of New York City’s bluest areas. This is a city that is not known to be friendly towards Republicans.

This was much more than initially expected (3500). This was much more than expected (3500 ). The numbers include people waiting outside the event.

“I’m here tonight to declare we are going to turn New York City around, and we are going to turn it around very, very quickly,” Trump said after taking the stage, vowing to bring back safety and better schools to the city. “We are going to make New York bigger, better and greater than ever before.”

Trump praised New York’s history but bemoaned the fact that “it is now a declining city.”

“I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” he said. He was referring both to the violent crimes taking place in the metro and the homeless camps scattered across the city.

Trump continued his attacks on President Biden, saying he was “grossly incompetent” to the Bronx residents.

Trump responded to the loud applause: “If New Yorkers cannot save their city, no one else can.” “Who said we wouldn’t be able to win New York?”

He promised to work with Democrat governor if elected. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, and Mayor Eric Adams, a Republican, are working together to improve the city and state, renovating the subways, cleaning the parks, and removing the homeless and mentally ill.

Trump’s speech was used to criticize the economic decline that the Biden Administration brought on the United States. He stressed how the economic downturn affected Black and Hispanic families the most, and repeated previous lines about energy, inflation and his weakness on the international stage.

Al Wilson’s “The Snake”, which he often uses as a metaphor to criticize uncontrolled illegal immigration, was recited by him.

The crowd included Blacks, Hispanics (including Hispanics), Whites, Asians, and Muslim supporters. Attendees came from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Trump is the only Republican candidate to actively campaign for general elections in New York City in the last 40 years. If Trump can accomplish the impossible feat, as many think he will do, and if the Empire State was to win, he would become the first Republican in more than 40 years to have done so.

Trump won the Bronx in 2016 with less than 10% of the vote. When he lost to Biden for reelection in 2020, his Bronx support rose to 16%. Current polls show that the former President has gained more support among Black and Hispanic voters.

According to the Trump campaign, former President Biden will be able erode Biden’s popularity in both demographics.

Democrats protested the rally in the same park. Bronx Democratic Party and a small group of about 100 people also protested. Police removed them, but without any major disturbance.
