Donald Trump speech today – latest: Trump tells rally to vote in ‘giant red wave’ as he rants about ‘weaponised’ justice system
Marjorie Taylor Greene encourages Trump supporters to boo Paul Pelosi
“You have to vote Republican this Tuesday in a huge red wave,” he told the crowd, vowing to end Nancy Pelosicareer once and for all.
Among those warming up the crowd before the former president spoke was a senator from Iowa Chuck Grassley and before him, Georgia Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene who had the crowd booing Paul Pelosi saying he should have been armed and shot the man who attacked him, intending to attack his wife. Mr. Pelosi was released from the hospital earlier Thursday.
Meanwhile, much to the exasperation of the former president, a judge who deals with the New York State Attorney Letitia JamesThe fraud suit against the Trump Organization and the Trump family ruled that an independent monitor would oversee the company, limiting its ability to operate.
Additionally, CNN reports that with a Trump run in 2024 looking likely, Ministry of Justice officials discussed the potential need for a special counsel for Jan. 6 and Mar-a-Lago documents investigations. A flurry of activity is expected after the closing dates.
What could stop Trump from running in 2024?
But while a loss to Joe Biden in November 2020 may have dented the one-term president’s pride and fueled 18 months of lies about rigged ballot boxes, it now seems almost certain that Trump will run for the White House again in 2024.
What, if anything, could thwart his plans?

Trump began the Iowa midterm rally with a growing list of familiar grievances
Donald Trump took the stage in Sioux City, Iowa, on Thursday around 8:30 p.m. ET and almost immediately began to vilify the country he led two years ago, calling the Hawkeye State “under siege” by a rogue’s gallery of famous villains, including the president House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Senator Chuck Schumerand the president Joe Biden.
He interspersed regular lines about inflation and the price of Americans’ Thanksgiving dinners with racist attacks on New York’s attorney general, who is currently suing him, his family and his eponymous real estate company to recover millions of dollars her office claims he defrauded New York financial institutions.
