Former President Donald Trump visited South Dakota on Friday, where he picked up a support from Gov. Kristi Noem. The gathering was held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City, and drew a crowd of about 7,000 people.
During his hour-long speech, Trump talked about many things, such as the economy, immigrants, and the 2020 election. He also said bad things about the Democratic Party and President Biden.
Noem presented Trump at the gathering. Noem is thought to be a possible running mate for Trump in 2024. She praised him for being a good leader and for all the good things he did as president.
The support from Noem is a big help for Trump's bid for president. People in South Dakota like Noem, and her support for Trump could help him win the state in 2024.
Trump's first big event since he said he would run for president again in 2024 was the gathering in South Dakota. Many people showed up and were excited about the event. This showed that Trump still has a lot of support among Republican voters.
Trump's trip to South Dakota also showed how divided the Republican Party is becoming. People in the Republican Party have said that Trump should be held responsible for his part in the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. Trump is still liked by many Republican voters, though, and he is seen as the favorite to win the Republican presidential ticket in 2024.
The gathering in South Dakota showed that Trump is still having an effect on politics in the United States. He is still a controversial figure, but he is also still a strong Republican Party leader.
The fact that Noem backed Trump shows that he is still a strong candidate in South Dakota. It is thought to be a "swing state," which means it could be very important in the 2024 election.
Trump's campaign for president is also picking up speed, as shown by the gathering in South Dakota. Across the country, he's been having gatherings to raise a lot of money.
Trump might get the Republican nomination in 2024, but we don't know for sure. He is still a big deal in American politics, though, as the gathering in South Dakota showed.
