Trump Hosts Shoreline Rally In Jersey Amid Criminal Trial Proceedings In New York


Former President Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail with a beachfront rally on the Jersey Shore on Saturday, amidst the ongoing proceedings of his hush money trial in New York.

The rally, held in Wildwood, South New Jersey, marks Trump’s third campaign event since the commencement of his trial four weeks ago. While New Jersey isn’t typically viewed as a battleground state, Trump expressed confidence in his ability to secure victory there, citing favorable demographics in certain districts.

Despite skepticism from some Republicans regarding the campaign’s decision to focus on New Jersey, Trump’s team sees an opportunity to leverage the proximity to the media market of nearby battleground state Pennsylvania, particularly aiming for coverage in Philadelphia.

During the rally, Trump praised North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and hinted at upcoming developments, fuelling speculation about potential running mates for his presumed 2024 presidential bid.

This wasn’t Trump’s first time campaigning in Wildwood. He previously visited the city in January 2020 to support Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who had switched parties from Democrat to Republican during Trump’s first impeachment trial.

“As you know, I’ve come here from New York, where I’m being forced to endure a Biden show trial all done by Biden … all being done by him, carried out by radical Democrat district attorney, you know who he is? Fat Alvin. Corrupt guy,” Trump said, going on to baselessly claim that the judge presiding over the trial is “highly conflicted.”

At the rally, Trump criticized President Biden’s handling of the Israel-Gaza conflict, accusing him of betraying a key ally. He also denounced the hush money trial in New York as a politically motivated sham, targeting Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

“It’s an odd choice,” one of the people said. “But this is Trump being Trump. He loves New Jersey and Atlantic City.”

Despite expectations of intensive campaigning during breaks from his trial, Trump has primarily focused on fundraising and leisure activities, prompting speculation about the campaign’s strategic choices and priorities.

“It’s a chance for him to be in Trump Country that’s close to Bedminster and probably a lot cheaper than having to fly and set up an event in a swing state,” Gorman said.
