BRONX – A historic event unfolded in the Bronx last night as Donald Trump held a campaign rally, marking the first time in 40 years that a presidential candidate has campaigned in this predominantly Democratic borough.

In front of a welcoming crowd of nearly 25,000 in Crotona Park, Donald Trump took the stage, surprising many Democrats. This event occurred just days after the conclusion of the prosecution and defense cases in the first-ever criminal trial of a former U.S. president.

The rally opened with speeches from Andrew Giuliani, son of Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani, and former senator and Reverend Ruben Diaz, Sr., who later joined Trump on stage.

“I’m here tonight to declare we are going to turn New York City around,” Trump proclaimed to a crowd waving Puerto Rican, Dominican, Israeli, and American flags. “I’ve never seen it quite like this.”

The enthusiastic reception was unexpected for Bronx Democrats and the media, who had anticipated more protesters than supporters. Many attendees wore t-shirts featuring Trump’s mugshot, while others sported “MAGA” tattoos and hats, with one even displaying a “Donald Trump” license plate.

In his speech, Trump criticized the current state of New York City and the country under President Biden.

“Our subways are squalid and unsafe, the ceiling tiles are falling down, and they look worse than a third-world country,” Trump stated.

“We are not going to let this continue. We are not going to abandon our hope and our pride. This city has given us so much, and now it is time that we give back. Together, we are going to make New York City great again,” he declared.

Trump did not hold back in his criticism of President Biden.

“Joe Biden is the worst president in the history of our country. He has no sense, doesn’t know what he’s doing, and is grossly incompetent,” Trump asserted.

“Our country’s going to hell, but we’re gonna turn it around,” he continued.

Trump promised that, if reelected, he would end restrictive regulations, boost the U.S. economy, and deport illegal immigrants.
