Former President Donald Trump fired up a raucous “Save America” rally crowd in Robstown, Texas with another not-so-subtle hint at a 2024 presidential run. Trump has not formally announced that he will seek another term, though he has on several occasions hinted at it.
During this latest rally, Trump touched on many of his usual topics. As the rally was in Texas, the border crisis hits home especially for residents of the Lone Star State. Predictably, Trump took aim at the Biden Administration and other powerful Democrats for immigration and border security policies that are enabling masses of illegal aliens to overwhelm the southern border. “Biden, Pelosi, the radical Democrats, spend all of their time obsessing over the borders of distant, foreign nations…But Americans deserve a Congress and a president who will protect the borders of OUR nation,” Trump asserted to a cheering crowd.
Trump touted the America First movement’s appeal to Hispanic voters, adding that Hispanic Americans in border counties and towns are perhaps some of the most vulnerable to the effects of illegal immigration. “Our support for strong border security is one of the major reasons why Hispanic Americans are joining our movement by the millions and millions and millions,” the former President said. In 2020, Trump notably won Zapata County, a majority Hispanic county on the US-Mexico border, gaining 38% of the vote from what he received in 2016.
As I just detailed on Bannon's War Room, the gains for President Trump all along the US/Mexico border were stunning as highly Hispanic, working-class voters shifted massively to the America First agenda.

Trump went on to predict a “Texas-sized landslide” victory for the GOP in November. Recent polling indicates that this prediction could become reality. A large portion of undecided voters have broken toward the GOP in a recent generic ballot poll conducted by Big Data Poll, despite Democrat and mainstream media attempts to paint the GOP as anti-woman and anti-democracy.
In closing, the 45th President told the crowd that he will “probably have to do it again”, meaning to run and serve another term for America to once again be “successful, safe, and glorious”. His statement was met with a roar of applause and chants of “USA.”
