What did Trump say during his interview with Hugh Hewitt?
The rally comes after Trump’s viral interview with radio host, Hugh Hewitt, on September 15, 2022.
During the segment, Trump was asked what would happen if he were indicted for keeping classified documents at his Florida home after his departure from the White House.
To which he responded: “I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.”
Hewitt went on to warn Trump of his use of words: “You know that the legacy media will say you’re attempting to incite violence with that statement.”
Nonetheless, the former president responded with: “That’s not, that’s not inciting. I’m just saying what my opinion is. I don’t think the people of this country would stand for it.”
When did Donald Trump’s Florida home get searched?
Trump said the FBI conducted a search on his Mar-a-Lago home on August 8, 2022.
“My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said in a statement, adding: “They even broke into my safe.”
A person familiar with the situation told CNN that investigators appeared to be focused on one area of the estate, particularly his office and personal quarters.
Trump’s son, Eric, said in a Fox News interview that “the purpose of the raid, from what they said, was because the National Archives wanted to, you know, corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession.”
Trump’s attorney, Christina Bobb, told CNN the FBI had seized documents during their search.
Bobb told the outlet: “President Trump and his legal team have been cooperative with FBI and DOJ officials every step of the way.”
She continued: “The FBI did conduct an unannounced raid and seized paper.”
Where else has Trump campaigned?
On June 18, 2022, Trump held his American Freedom Tour event in Memphis, Tennessee.
He was joined on stage by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dinesh D’Souza, Mark Burns, Sheriff Mark Lamb, and a number of other conservative speakers at Landers Center.
On Saturday, May 28, he made his first-ever appearance at a rally in Casper, Wyoming, where he endorsed GOP congressional candidate Harriet Hageman, who will be challenging Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
Previously, former President Donald Trump headlined the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Texas on Friday, May 27.
In a post via Truth Social, Trump said he would be keeping his “longtime commitment” to speak at the event in Houston because the country needs “real solutions and real leadership at this moment.”
The news comes after a mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas left at least 19 students and two teachers dead.
According to NPR, attendees were not able to carry guns during his address and were searched with magnetometers before entry by Secret Service.
He showed his support for Republican candidate Harriet Hageman, who is campaigning against Liz Cheney.
Over the years, Trump and Cheney have not seen eye-to-eye and have called each other out on several occasions.
In October 2021, Trump went as far as calling her a “smug fool” after she backed a criminal contempt vote against former White House aide Stephen Bannon, The Hill reports.
“Low-polling Liz Cheney is actually very bad news for the Democrats, people absolutely cannot stand her as she fights for the people that have decimated her and her father for many years,” Trump said at the time.
“She is a smug fool, and the great State of Wyoming, together with the Republican Party, fully understands her act. To look at her is to despise her,” he continued.
Cheney then clapped back in January 2022 after she blamed him for the January 6 Capitol Riots and said that he is “clearly unfit for future office [and] clearly can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.”
“He crossed lines no American president has ever crossed before,” Cheney said during an appearance on This Week, via ABC News.
“When a president refuses to tell the mob to stop, when he refuses to defend any of the coordinate branches of government, he cannot be trusted.”
