Massive Trump Rally – Over 50K In Small S.C. Town!

According to Police Chief Randal Beach, a significant gathering of people, estimated to be around 50,000 to 55,000, assembled in a small South Carolina town on Saturday as former President Donald Trump held a rally.

Trump initiated the start of the Fourth of July weekend by organizing a rally in Pickens, a town with approximately 3,400 inhabitants. Prior to the event, long queues formed, indicating the high level of interest. While other Republican candidates had already conducted events in the area, it was reported that none of them garnered an audience as large and significant as the one Trump attracted.

“There’s nowhere else I’d rather be to kick off the Fourth of July weekend than right here on Main Street, with thousands of hardworking South Carolina patriots who believe in God, family and country,” Trump addressed the crowd.

Individuals from neighboring counties and states flocked to the small town, eager to catch a glimpse of the former president. Trump’s team collaborated with the 3-square-mile city to close down the main business strip specifically for the rally. This gathering posed a foreboding indication for the DeSantis campaign, as their recent event in a North Augusta community center only attracted a considerably smaller audience, despite the Florida Governor’s session of answering questions.

“The Supreme Court decisions ending racist college admissions, protecting religious liberty, and stopping an illegal student loan forgiveness scheme were a reminder of how President Trump kept the promises he made to voters. Mind you, the tens of thousands of patriots that turned out in Pickens, South Carolina did it on a day with temperatures over 90 degrees. The Trump train has left the station and is not stopping until President Trump is seated behind the Resolute Desk,” CEO Taylor Budowich stated.

In preparation for the rally, vendors arranged their stalls several days beforehand, homeowners attempted to sell parking spaces in their yards for $50, and some attendees resorted to sleeping outside the entry gate overnight. As Saturday arrived and temperatures soared, the line meandered through the city, leading Trump’s team to distribute pallets of water and Gatorade to the crowd in a frantic effort to combat the heat.

At approximately 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, Trump’s plane soared above the crowd. The school choir from Greenville, who had previously been prevented from singing The National Anthem inside the Capitol, performed during the event. Subsequently, Senator Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) and Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) delivered speeches.

During his address, the former president touched upon his ongoing criminal cases, criticized President Biden, and launched an attack on DeSantis, specifically regarding his farming record.

This rally in Pickens is not the first significant gathering Trump has organized during his 2024 campaign. In March, he held a rally in Waco, Texas, which drew a crowd of over 25,000 attendees. In May, a rally was scheduled in Iowa but had to be canceled due to weather concerns.

The massive turnout in Pickens is reflective of Trump’s increasing lead over DeSantis and other GOP candidates. According to FiveThirtyEight polls as of June 28th, Trump is currently leading DeSantis by a margin of 30 points in the GOP primary election.
