Trump steps onto the scene to fill the Macomb County crowd

Washington city – Former President Donald Trump took the stage Saturday night in Macomb County, his first visit to Michigan since his November 2020 election visit to the state.

Trump is expected to beat his approved Michigan lead candidates, including his election as Secretary of State and Attorney General: Kristina Karamo and Matt DePerno. He joked on November 2, 2020, during a stopover in Grand Rapids that he might not visit Michigan again if he loses. President Joe Biden scored 51-48%, which Trump has contested.

Hours before Trump took the stage on Saturday in Macomb County, crowds lined up outside the sports complex at the ex-president’s rally.

Brian Tyrell, chief of the Washington Township fire department, said the Michigan Star Center’s room capacity would be limited to 5,500. He predicted that capacity would be reached and thousands of people would remain outside the facility.

Saturday’s visit will take place three weeks before the Republican nomination convention in Michigan in Grand Rapids, where constituency delegates will select Republican candidates for secretary of state and attorney general to advance to the November elections. They will also elect two nominees to the State Board of Education, the Michigan Supreme Court, as well as to the boards of Michigan, Wayne State and the University of Michigan.

Former President Donald Trump spoke twice at Total Sports Park ahead of Saturday's Washington Township rally.  Trump spoke there on April 28, 2018, instead of attending a White House Correspondents Association dinner.

Political experts said they expect the April 23 nomination convention to test Trump’s scope of influence within the party.
