The extraordinary display opened Trump’s first rally of his 2024 Republican presidential campaign. Trump’s campaign insisted the location and timing of the event had nothing to do with the Waco siege or anniversary. “He’s an innocent man, just persecuted,” said Kregel, arguing an indictment would help Trump win in 2024.
