President emeritus Donald J. Trump will hold a rally in Arizona in January; a political action committee called Save America that is affiliated with the 45th president announced Thursday. The rally will be the former president’s first since he appeared at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines in October.
Mr. Trump is touting 2022 as his comeback year, which will be his first rally for the new year. The stakes are stacked sky-high in this election year for Republicans in general and Mr. Trump in particular as he is being hailed as ‘more than the leader of the Republican party, but the pioneer of a revolution in America.’
Lindell is a speculated attendee of the Arizona rally
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he’s slated to be one of the opening acts at former President Donald Trump’s January 15 rally.
During the Wednesday evening edition of “The Lindell Report,” Lindell made the announcement, a nightly broadcast on his website, Frank Speech.
Lindell says the rally will be ‘huge.’
“I will be speaking in the pre-rally. There’s a lot of great speakers. They were crammed in,” Lindell said. “They said there’s going to be 30,000 people. I say there’s gonna be 60 to 70,000. It’s gonna be huge.”
Speaking to Insider on Wednesday night, Lindell said he was initially planning to get tickets to the Trump rally like “everyone else,” but decided to approach Trump’s team to see if he could get on stage to say a few words and give a “short message of hope.”
Insider has reached out to Trump’s team to confirm that Lindell will be speaking at the January 15 event.
Lindell’s speech will probably be ‘a message of hope.’
“Most of my speeches are, you know, evangelical. I’m gonna speak out and probably give people a message of hope. I expect a huge, huge crowd,” Lindell said.
Lindell added that he had approached the Trump team and asked for a slot to give a speech.
“I’m speaking at an event (in Arizona) the day before, so it lined up pretty well. I asked his event team if there’s a possibility for a few minutes to speak, and they let me know this week that I have a few minutes,” Lindell said.
“I’ve been to probably 30, 40 rallies,” Lindell added. “Usually, I just go there and take pictures, meet people, and talk to the media.”
The pillow executive added that he wasn’t sure what he would say at the rally because he “doesn’t plan anything.”
Kari Lake’s attendance at the Arizona rally confirmed.
While Lindell’s address at the Arizona rally is yet to be confirmed, Kari Lake, one of several Republican candidates for governor in Arizona, announced her attendance for the upcoming rally on Twitter. The former president endorsed her in late September.
Lake’s official declaration of attendance on Twitter reads as follows:
“President Trump is coming to Florence, Arizona, on Jan 15 for a Rally.
There’s a state prison in Florence…
LIKE if you think the 2020 Arizona elections were Corrupt.
RETWEET if you want those responsible to be held accountable.”
Trump calls off press conference on Capitol Hill attack anniversary
The January 15 rally in Florence, Arizona, will be Trump’s first major rally of 2022. The former president said he plans to talk about the January 6 Capitol riot at the event in Arizona.
Trump this week called off a press conference initially scheduled for January 6. He blamed the abrupt cancellation of the event — initially slated to be held at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida — on “the total bias and dishonesty of the January 6 Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and the Fake News Media.”
