Former President Donald Trump will begin his Make America Great Again rally next week with an event in Ohio.
The campaign-style event was announced by Trump’s Save America PAC and will be the former president’s first rally since leaving the White House.
“President Trump‘s first of many appearances in support of candidates and causes that advance the MAGA agenda and the achievements of President Trump’s administration,” the PAC said in a statement.
The event will take place at the Lorain County Fairgrounds near Cleveland, and Trump will endorse his former advisor, Max Miller, a Republican congressional candidate.
TRUMP SAYS âPEOPLE LIKE ME MORE THAN EVERâ WHILE TALKING THE 2024 RUN
Miller challenges Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who has represented Ohio’s 16th Congressional District since 2019.
The former president previously described Miller as “a wonderful person who did a great job in the White House.”
He “will be a fantastic Congressman,” Trump said of Miller in February. “He’s a Marine Veteran, a son from Ohio, and a true PATRIOT.”
Trump’s statement also criticized Gonzalez, who was among a small group of Republicans who voted to charge Trump with inciting the January 6 riot in Washington, DC. Trump was eventually acquitted of the charges.
âCurrent MP Anthony Gonzalez shouldn’t represent the people of the 16th arrondissement because he doesn’t represent their interests or their hearts. Max Miller has my full and unreserved approval! âHe wrote.

In January Gonzalez released a statement claiming Trump was directly responsible for the Capitol uprising.
“The President of the United States helped organize and incite a mob that attacked the United States Congress to prevent us from performing our solemn duties under the Constitution,” Gonzalez said in the statement.
“During the attack itself, the president resigned while many members asked for help, putting everyone present at risk,” he added. “These are fundamental threats not only to people’s lives, but to the very foundation of our republic.”
