President Donald Trump is expected to headline large rallies in four battleground states months after Joe Biden took over the White House. The pro-life former president remains wildly popular with conservative Americans as Biden racks up an extensive pro-abortion record just a short period of time.
While Biden has been routinely criticized for his lack of public appearances and making mistakes in his speeches when he does, Trump has maintained a very visible presence since leaving the White House — issuing frequent statements, giving interviews and meeting publicly with key supporters and political allies.
Now, as the New York Post reports, Trump will headline rallies in states that will again be crucial in the 2022 midterm and 2024 presidential elections:
“Relatively soon, we’ll be doing one in Florida, we’re gonna do one in Ohio, we’re gonna do one in Georgia, we’re gonna do one in North Carolina,” Trump told One America News. “We’ll be announcing them very soon over the next week or two, and I think we’ll probably start in Florida and Ohio and we’ll be announcing the rallies very shortly.”
A source close to the 45th president told The Post last week that Trump would hold at least two rallies in June, with a third event likely to take place around the July 4 holiday.
Trump has sat for several interviews with conservative media outlets since leaving office in January. He made his first major post-presidential speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in February and he is scheduled to headline the North Carolina Republican Party’s convention on June 5.
While Trump won Florida, Ohio and North Carolina in both the 2016 and 2020 elections, last year he became the first Republican candidate to lose Georgia in a presidential election since George H.W. Bush in 1992.

The former president has since cast aspersions on the conduct of Georgia election officials, including Republican secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, over his defeat and insisted without evidence that the loss was the result of voter fraud. Republicans went on to lose both of Georgia’s US Senate seats in a pair of special elections in January, handing Democrats full control of Congress and the White House.
Leading pro-life groups are already looking forward to the midterm elections as they hope to retake the House or Senate, or both, from pro-abortion Democrats.
Trump compiled a strong pro-life record during his four years.
In one of his first acts as president, Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits taxpayer funding to groups that promote or provide abortions overseas. The change defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million in U.S. tax dollars.
Trump has repeatedly called out the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion. During his State of the Union address Trump slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. He also called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.
Trump and his administration have made a number of changes to protect those who morally object to abortions, expanding conscience protections for medical workers who believe it is wrong to kill an unborn baby and increasing religious exemptions for Obamacare.
His administration also intervened to stop the United Nations from supporting abortion in a resolution about sexual violence. In 2018, under his leadership, the State Department removed references to the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby from a global human rights report as well.
During his presidency, the administration also finalized a new Title X rule that requires health care entities to completely separate abortion from their taxpayer-funded services.
Trump appointed dozens of conservative judges to federal courts as well, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court and he has repeatedly told the UN that he will not promote abortion as a human right.
