Trump Electrifies in Phoenix

AMAC Exclusive


In an urgent warning about a “corrupt and broken system” and  the country’s direction under the leadership of Joe Biden and an increasingly radical Democratic Party, former President Donald Trump electrified a crowd of mostly young people in Phoenix on Saturday. In his remarks, which came as part of a “Protect our Elections Rally” hosted at the Arizona Federal Theatre by Turning Point Action, a leading conservative political action committee, Trump said that “the time to hold [Democrats] responsible and fix this broken and corrupt system is not in 2022 or 2024. The time is now. We do not have the luxury to sit back and wait until the next election. If nothing is done, they will just rig and steal it away from the American people again. No other issue is as important.”

Much of Trump’s speech similarly focused on election integrity as a top campaign issue for Republicans heading into the midterm elections next year. Even as congressional Democrats continue their push to federalize elections and remove protections against voter fraud, Trump called for “truth, transparency, and accountability” in election systems and said that “we will not stop until we have restored our American birthright of honest, free, and fair elections.”

Several Arizona state senators were present at the event and received a shoutout from President Trump, who thanked them for their “tremendous courage.” The Arizona state Senate is in the middle of a forensic audit of ballots cast in Maricopa County during the 2020 election, an investigation that has already flagged numerous issues of concern, as Trump detailed at length in his remarks.

The former president also delivered a brutal takedown of Biden’s radical agenda in the nearly two-hour long speech, lamenting that “our country is being destroyed by people who have no right to destroy it.”

Trump went on to list the many crises currently facing the nation, saying that “crime is surging. Inflation is soaring. The border is gone. We went from the strongest border ever to the weakest border ever. The border is non-existent. Illegal aliens are pouring in, in record numbers. Critical race theory is being forced into every facet of our society. Free speech is being crushed.”

Rampant violent crime in Democrat-run cities, a topic largely ignored by the mainstream media, was a key issue Trump expanded upon in the speech. “The crime has never been higher,” Trump said, citing record numbers of shootings in places like Chicago and New York, a situation that he called “worse than any war zone anywhere in the world.”

Trump also lambasted Democrat officials in New York for continuing to pursue frivolous lawsuits against him. “Innocent people are beaten in the streets daily. People are shot in Times Square. Rapes and murders are totally out of control. And yet what are the leftists and the attorney general and district attorney’s offices working on so diligently?… They campaign on getting Trump.”

As illegal border crossings continue to skyrocket in Arizona and across much of the southwest, Trump called out the Biden administration’s disastrous open borders policies, saying that “the flood of illegal immigrants is also placing a crushing burden on communities across the state and throughout the nation, depleting your already overcrowded schools and hospitals and public services of critical resources.”

President Trump concluded his remarks with a rousing exhortation that earned thunderous applause from the crowd. “Our movement is driven by a love for America and an ironclad faith in the American people,” Trump said. “We know in our veins that our American inheritance was passed down to us by generations of patriots who gave everything they had, their sweat, their blood, and even their very lives to build America into the most powerful nation in the history of the world. And we are not going to let it be taken away from us by a small group of radical left, Marxist maniacs.”

More than 5,000 people were inside the theater to hear the speech, some having waited in line starting as early as 4:30 a.m. to get in. Many more gathered outside in the summer heat to show their support for the former President, more evidence that his popularity among Republicans has not declined since leaving office.

“I love President Trump” one woman outside the event said, going on to explain that “I think he holds a lot of my values and my family’s values.” Another person present expressed hope that Trump would run for President again in 2024, saying that “I would want our country to get back on track.”

The reaction was similarly enthusiastic on social media, with many conservatives applauding Trump for a stellar and energetic performance. Author Brigitte Gabriel stated her hope for a second Trump term, tweeting “TRUMP 2024: SAVE AMERICA AGAIN.” Blake Masters, a major candidate to challenge Democrat Mark Kelly for his U.S. Senate seat in 2022, was present at the event and tweeted that President Trump was in “top form” and described the “incredible 2016 energy” inside the theater.

As the battle for control of Congress in 2022 ramps up, President Trump has only solidified his status as the leader of the conservative movement and the Republican Party, drawing large, enthusiastic crowds each time he has made a public appearance since leaving office. If Republicans do take back control of the House and Senate, they will likely look back on moments like Saturday as the foundation of that victory.

I watched most of President Trump’s speech in Arizona.

Now, compare that to Biden’s muddled, nonsensical, and pointless verbiage every time he comes to the dais or is approached by a reporter, and to Harris’ lies and giggly diversions. How can anyone in this country, regardless of political persuasion, believe that we elected real leaders to the highest offices in the country? Big mistake.

 Most people seem to love negative talk, complaints, wrong stories and reports. Listen to yourself talk and those around you. If you are a person of truth, honesty, good reports, etc. many folks don’t like to listen to you; why is that? It was that way in Jesus’ day and has been through the ages….look at the news reports, negative stuff sales! To bad. That is the evil in the world and why the evil folks hate President Trump. He did practice truthfulness, honesty, good reports, etc. start practicing changing your minds way of thinking. You are responsible for what you say, what you think, and what you do. Don’t follow the world’s ways, think as an honest person, truthful person, and tell the truth….see what happens. At least you’ll feel better about yourself.

The Democrats and the Main Stream Media hate President Trump so much they will oppose anything or everything he has said or done:

Law and order Allow lawlessness
No Bail
Release prisoners and brag that crime is down
Secure and protect the southern border Open borders
Stop Catch and release into our country Just let Covid19, criminals, rapist, terrorists and
felons into the interior of the country without
knowing who they are.
Build a Wall to help control the surge Stop building the wall, even though it’s paid for.
Fair Controlled Elections Uncontrolled Elections
Voter ID No Voter ID
Signature verification No signature verification
Energy Independence Go back to dependence from OPEC
Keystone Pipeline Russian Pipeline
Fracking No Fracking
Cancel Iran Nuclear Deal Return to the Iran Nuclear Deal
Hold China accountable Kissing up to China
Russian Sanctions Lifting Russian Sanctions
Getting Nato to pay up We pay the bulk of the cost

Stop the Unemployment subsidy of $300 Keep paying the $300 per week subsidy
taking the incentive to work away to unemployment, benefits making it more
profitable to not work.
Hold Facebook and Twitter accountable for Allowing social media to take away the First
First Amendment Violations rights of conservatives only.

I could go on and on, with the treatment of Israel, and supporting Hamas, protecting the Biden family from real confirmed law breaking abuses, while accusing the Trump family of unsubstantiated crimes, taking credit for the Covid 19 accomplishments of Trump, justifying trillions of dollars of spending without any accountability of how to pay it back. Everything the left is doing, in my opinion, is not only “what is right, is wrong and what is wrong is right” and backwards, but pure evil!

President Trump. is one of the two best Presidents in my lifetime, of the last Seven Presidents Reagan, and Trump were the very best, America should be grateful, the Two Bushes were mediocre at best, not all Republicans are great, Clinton could have been a good President, but, he hung around with bad people, (Hillary ), Baraka Insane Obama and Hidden Joe Biden were not only the worst two of the last Seven (7) they are the worst of all the Presidents in history, and if we are so incompetent that we can not correct that by 2024, America will be lost

President Trump is a very intelligent man hes got Americas best interest at heart hes a true patriot period! Trump asked Pelosi for 10,000 National Guard during his rally but Pelosi denied him because she planned this whole insane ordeal at the capital the police knew it too the secret service the F.B.I. as well. Antifa and blm terrorists even our F.B.I. who invited everyone in were involved stirring up the crowds encouraging trouble! Why did Pelosi not have D.C. shut down tighter than a drum with a full Congress and v.p. Pence in attendance it doesn’t add up! This was a planned attack on Trump and his millions of supporters period! Pelosi also protected that black cop who shot in cold blood Ashli Babbitt an unarmed white female veteran but Chauvin a white cop gets fed to the wolves over floyd in Minneapolis double standards hell yes equal justice under the law hell no!

I wonder if these stories about huge crowds for Trump are really true. The polls seem to indicate his popularity is declining. The right can use propaganda just as well as the left, and I’m a skeptic.

Same polls that were wrong in 2004, wrong in 2012, wrong in 2014, wrong in 2016, wrong in 2018, wrong in 2020. You get the idea. In a just and right world pollsters would not be able to show their faces in public without repercussions. But they are all part of the Rat party and as Trump said they are suppression polls. KAG

I live in Phoenix. The stories are absolutely true, I’ve been there, seen it. Every time Trump comes to AZ he draws enormous crowds, but if you want to continue to believe what CNN & the “polls” say, go right ahead. The rest of us know the truth & we want our true president back. If the election had not been completely corrupted, senile Joe would not be in office now. So believe what you want, true conservatives know the truth because we get our news from sources other than CNN, the late night talk show hosts, the rest of the “woke” crowd & social media.

Yes….and he did not have his notes written by someone else that he could not read and he knew where he was….unlike the faux president.

You may find him to be rude and abrasive but he gets things done for the good of the people. YOU GO #45. Leaders sure seem to be in short supply. PICK ONE: MAGA or KAG!

I agree he does get things done, he is abrasive and annoying, but there are others out there who could get things done with less drama. My choice is DeSantis.

Yes Trump had his good points, but the Republicans need to come up with candidate for President in 2024. We do not need another last 60-days of Trump in office that cared more about himself than the American citizens & USA. It seems like that was the real Trump & it is time for him to support someone else to take over.

Who cares if he was abrasive. You were not electing a dinner guest, you were electing a guy who you wanted to carry out your policies. Geez, you people are you own worst enemy. I’ll tell you flat out after 40+ years of voting, Trump was the first on to actually do what he said. You know, PROMISE MADE PROMISES KEPT. Trump will be the last GOP president. Nobody else stands a chance of pulling out the black vote, the latino vote, the few rats that are still sane and other identity groups who used to think the GOP was not for them. Any other GOP candidate other than Trump will be beat easily. Trump is our only hope. He is having rally after rally already to to try and pull the GOP over the top in the House in 2022. If he pulls that off which I believe he will then we can put the brakes on this commie insanity. The media didn’t tell you put we had enormous gains in the House.

Very well said on all points Joseph. What all these people that are calling for anyone but Trump really want is some GOP cardboard cut-out that delivers pretty speeches and promises during the campaign and then as soon as he or she is elected, immediately abandons every single promise and does little to nothing of consequence as he or she sits quietly in the WH. All while the media and Democrats do their usual “President (fill in the blank) is Hitler or a racist and must be removed from office” routine. They have no understanding that most truly successful business people, that have attained Trump’s level of success or higher, all have strong personalities. If anything, President Trump is a far nicer guy than most of his peers personality wise.

These same delicate flowers, who all complain about President Trump’s demeanor, will then be complaining that their GOP cardboard cut-out isn’t getting anything done. Both Reagan and Trump were despised by the establishment GOP, because they didn’t want to play the usual “talk plenty, but do nothing” game.

I am with President Trump all the way. If we do not take control, the leftist Democrats are going to totally destroy our country. They already have got a good start on it. I want my Trump America back. I am old and want a free, stable America for my kids and grandkids and gt grands. The Democrats have almost destroyed every thing America stood for. Made us weak and look like fools.

Before I agree, I want to see the proof of a fix. Why this election after 200-years of elections. And why did Trump start saying the only way I can lose is if election is rigged —several months before election. What did he know or see ????

You need to continue watching CNN and the rest of the main street media to get the information you FEEL is right, that all past elections were honest and free of illegal behavior. Libbies will never believe the information contained within this article.

President Trump loves and appreciates our country and it shows clearly everytime he gives a speech. He loves we the people and fights for America and Americans to come first. Isn’t that what most people hope for in a leader? I appreciate him for calling out the wrongs some people do; he is honest with his thoughts unlike most of the DC politicians and his tweets were right on the mark! Guess that’s why he was removed!
