Former President Donald Trump’s first 2022 rally in Florence, Arizona this Saturday evening offered the potential 2024 challenger a chance to lay out his many issues with current President Joe Biden and make the case for why he may be the only one who can fix the mess Biden has created.

“We’ve had more problems, we’ve had more destruction than five presidents put together in the last year. These decisions they’re making, they’re wrecking and devastating people’s lives, firing Americans from their jobs, forcing innocent children to grow up in masks,” he said.

“What they’re doing is incredible: They’ve taken away their dignity, they’ve taken away their liberties, and I say enough is enough, and we are not going to take it anymore.”‘

A majority of Americans appear to share his sentiment. The current president’s average approval rating is a dismal 41.6 percent, while his average ratings on the economy and COVID are 39.7 percent and 47.2 percent, respectively.

These are stunningly low numbers for a man who’d promised to unite the country and fix all of the problems that he claimed Trump had created.

“These corrupt, power-hungry lunatics need to hear us loud and clear: We are done having our lives controlled by politicians and Washington bureaucrats,” the former president added.

The rally Saturday was centered around the former president’s newest slogan, “Save America.”

Continuing his remarks, Trump then switched his focus to the treatment being faced by accused Jan. 6th rioters.

“The jails are filthy, disgusting, dirty, and they’re even being cited by the courts for being so horrible. … The showers are disgusting, the bathrooms are horrible, and people are being forced to live like that. Let them use their lawyers. Let them go out and defend themselves, and if we think they’re innocent, we should help them defend themselves,” he said.

He was particularly angry with the Jan. 6th commission of mainly Democrats and two supposed Republicans, Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney.

“They are Democratic hacks, and they’re vicious, and every one of them voted to impeach me, every one of them. … It’s a disgrace! It’s a disgrace to our country, what’s happening, and it takes the meaning out of the word,” he said.

But the former president did express joy over news that Cheney is “now polling at 16 percent,” and Kinzinger, whom he described as a “crier,” is on his way out.

“We just lost Katko, too. He’s gone now, too. They’re falling fast and furious. The ones that voted to impeach, we’re getting rid of them fast,” he added, referencing outgoing Rep. John Katko.

All three — Kinzinger, Cheney and Katko — voted to impeach the former president during his second impeachment in early 2021.

As for whether or not he intends to run for re-election 2024, the president abstained from saying. He did however promise a “comeback,” though he could have very well been speaking about the Republican Party in a more general sense.

“In 2024, we are going to TAKE BACK the White House! … We’re going to stage a comeback the likes of which nobody has ever seen,” he reportedly said.

If Trump does run in 2024, his chances look decent. For just one example of why, you need only look to Maricopa County, a longtime Republican stronghold that turned fiercely against Trump in the 2020 election.

“People just turned against Trump. He became a visceral figure of hate. I was chased away. People were screaming abuse at me,” GOP operative Benny Johnson, who unsuccessfully ran for office in the state, told the Daily Mail.

Yet those formerly angry residents have since come flocking back to the former president in shame.

According to the Daily Mail, many voters in that region “regret switching their support to Biden.” And when questioned by the outlet last week, “they said they’d now rather vote for Trump.”

“My mother hated Trump because of his immigration policies, but he’s been pro-life and actively talking about repealing Roe v Wade, and so she now likes him,” one local Hispanic woman told the Mail.

“Trump appeals to people who hoped Biden would help them and who, for a variety of reasons, are feeling disappointed. Memories are short. Trump didn’t solve many problems but he was strident. In contrast, Biden is weak and old and hasn’t done much. People miss the bluster of Trump. He is offering hope. And hope is all they have.”

Will he run, though? Nobody knows yet. But he’s certainly got the money for it.

“Incredibly, Trump has built up a $115 million (£84 million) election ‘war chest’ through donations sent to his website,” according to the Daily Mail.

That’s a lot of money for a man who hasn’t even declared his candidacy yet …
