A crop plane with a banner reading "Tax the Rich" along with President Joe Biden's motto "Build Back Better" surrounded the rally venue at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter on Saturday afternoon.
Trump is coming to the heart of the Peach State on Saturday to continue a rally for lieutenant governor candidate and current Georgia state senator Burt Jones, Secretary of State Candidate and current US Representative Jody Hice, and Senate candidate Herschel Walker, all of whom gave speeches teeing up the main act.
"People always ask what qualifies me to run to this office," Walker said in his speech.
He answered: "Well, I'm an American."
"What qualifies a reverend to run for office? What qualifies a farmer to run, a businessman to run? What qualifies me to run is that I love America," he said, '' I think that a requirement for the presidential candidates should be that they love the U.S.
Hours before the former president's speech, Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and Walker mixed with attendees.
Greene, who represents George in 14 congressional districts and the Northwestern-est corner of the state was given a very warm welcome from the pro-Trump crowd.
She walked around with an "impeach Biden" sign in her right hand and shook people's support with her last before the rally started. Soon after, Greene took the stage with her sign — prompting a chant of the same words.
The idea came Friday in a radio interview when the host stressed Trump has avoided formally announcing his generally anticipated run.
“I’ll ask you a different way, can you think of a reason not to run?” asked David Brody of the Real America’s Voice network.
“Well, I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump responded. “I will say, that happens with people.”
“So things happen, through God, they happen,” Trump continued. “But you know, I feel so good, and I hate what’s happening to our country.”
Trump is expected to take the stage in Perry, Ga., Saturday night for one of his signature rallies, where he will introduce a slate of candidates that have won his endorsement in upcoming GOP primary races — further evidence of his continuing efforts to remake the Republican Party in his populist image.
