Former President Donald Trump will be holding a rally in Laconia, New Hampshire on Monday night, just hours before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary. In a show of unity and strength, Trump will be joined on stage by former opponents who are now endorsers: Senator Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Governor Doug Burgum.
This gathering is intended to demonstrate that the Republican Party is united and ready to take on President Joe Biden. According to a Trump campaign official, the presence of Scott, Ramaswamy, and Burgum is meant to draw a sharp contrast to Joe Biden and preview the upcoming general election.
These three VIP guests, who were once Trump’s rivals, will speak on stage and participate in media interviews, highlighting their support for Trump and their shared vision for the future of the party.
The Republican primary field recently narrowed down to Trump and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suspended his presidential campaign.
Trump, who has consistently held a significant lead since announcing his candidacy, solidified his position as the front-runner by winning the Iowa caucuses on January 15.
DeSantis, in endorsing Trump, emphasized that Republican voters want to give Trump another chance. He acknowledged his disagreements with Trump on certain issues but stated that Trump is superior to the incumbent, Joe Biden.
DeSantis expressed his belief that Trump’s presidency was hindered by relentless resistance and highlighted the Democrats’ ongoing use of lawfare to attack him. He also criticized the old Republican guard, represented by Nikki Haley, as a repackaged form of warmed-over corporatism.
Trump, appreciative of DeSantis’ endorsement, expressed his eagerness to work together to defeat Joe Biden, whom he described as the worst and most corrupt president in the history of the country.
While there are no immediate plans for DeSantis to join Trump on the campaign trail, a Trump campaign official confirmed that the door is open for future collaboration.
In a lighthearted note, Trump mentioned that he would no longer be using the nickname “Ron DeSanctimonious” for DeSantis. This retirement of the nickname signifies a shift in their relationship as they focus on their shared goal of winning the upcoming election.
As the rally in New Hampshire approaches, the presence of former opponents-turned-endorsers emphasizes the unity and determination within the Republican Party.
This show of force sends a clear message that the party is ready to take on Joe Biden and his administration. With Trump leading by double digits in recent polling, the rally is expected to energize supporters and solidify his position as the front-runner in the Republican Party.
