Former President Donald Trump hosted a Save America rally on Saturday, April 23, 2022 in Delaware, Ohio. It was part of a series of Save America rallies he is hosting. Here’s a look at how many people attended Trump’s rally, including crowd photos and updates on what happened.

 

“Thousands” of people attended the rally, which took place at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Delaware, Ohio, Toledo Blade reported. Trump’s speech began around 7 p.m. EST, but people were allowed into the venue beginning in the afternoon. Trump started his speech a few minutes early.

 

While an official viewership estimate has not yet been released, reporters who attended the event seem divided on how many were there. Some believe it was a dense crowd, while others felt it may have been a little smaller than Trump’s previous rallies. Most agreed that the size of the venue made it difficult to estimate attendance and compare to previous rallies.

 

Jo Ingles, a reporter for Ohio Public Radio, tweeted that she didn’t know how many attendees were in attendance, but “there’s a lot packed around the racecourse.”

 

she said later that Trump claimed the event broke the venue’s attendance records, but she would need to verify that was true.

 

Ohio Statehouse News Bureau’s Mary Jane Sanese tweeted video of the crowd, noting that Trump said the crowd was “backing up as far as the eye can see.”

 

Just before his speech began, she tweeted that “in addition to the main stage / cordoned off seating area, the crowd is walking around on each side and going back.”

 

 

Here’s a look at the turnout about an hour before Trump took the stage.

 

USA Today Ohio network’s Haley BeMiller tweeted that the crowd was feeling a little “sparser” than at the last rallies she’s attended, but the event has also become more diversified, allowing for more space to sit and stand.

 

Here’s a mass photo of Kristinn Taylor, a conservative Free Republic writer.

HuffPost’s Liz Skalka tweeted that this “seems like the smallest crowd I’ve ever seen at a Trump rally in Ohio. I could be wrong, but that’s what the ~vibes~ are suggesting. Difficult to say as this is not a seat.”

 

During his speech, Trump gave great support to JD Vance, a venture capitalist who is running for the Senate. He invited Vance to join him onstage during his speech, saying that Vance will “win an historic victory,” although Trump also likes some of his opponents. Trump noted that Vance once criticized him, but, “If I had gone by that standard, I don’t think I would have supported anyone in the country.”

 

The rally comes just before the main race in Ohio on May 3, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

 

Ahead of Trump’s speech, other Republicans spoke to the crowd, including Rep. Mike Carey, Rep. Troy Balderson and Mike Lindell, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

 

During his speech, Trump also made a surprise endorsement for JR Majewski, who is running for the 9th district.

 

Ohio Statehouse bureau chief Karen Kasler tweeted that Trump also endorses Ohio Secretary of State Frank La Rose and auditor Keith Faber.

 

Trump also said he wanted to “one day allow voting slips” and not allow absentee ballots.

 

Trump has more events planned. According to his website, his next Save America rally will be on Friday, April 29 at 8 p.m. Central in Greenwood, Nebraska. This is to take place on the I-80 Speedway.

 

Trump will also begin participating in an “American Freedom Tour,” which will include a stop in Austin, Texas on May 14, KVUE reported. Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Mike Pompeo, Dinesh D’Souza and others are also expected to attend. The American Freedom Tour will also stop in Birmingham, Alabama on June 18th.

 

Trump’s first rally of 2022 was held in Florence, Arizona, in mid-January. Trump held a rally in Georgia in September. He also held a rally in Des Moines, Iowa in October 2021, a rally in Alabama in August 2021, and a rally in Ohio in June 2021. He also held a rally in Conroe, Texas in January that was attended by tens of thousands, according to media at the event.

 

At his August rally in Alabama, he was booed after telling those in attendance to take the vaccines. He replied, “You know what? I firmly believe in your freedoms, I do. You have to do what you have to do. But I recommend taking the vaccinations, I did it, it’s good. Take the vaccines.”

 

Trump has not yet announced whether he will run in the 2024 presidential election. However, during his speech in South Carolina, he told the crowd that “we may have to run again,” adding, “we’re going to take back the White House.” Trump did that same comments during his Georgia rallyand said that he might have to walk again.
