Dogged by the threat of criminal indictments, Donald Trump has called on supporters to attend what he calls the first major rally of the 2024 presidential race.
Legal threats overshadow Trump’s first election rally
Donald Trump will hold an election rally in Texas at a site critics say will play to his far-right supporters as he seeks to boost a presidential campaign dogged by the threat of criminal indictments.
In what the former president has billed as his first major rally of the 2024 presidential race, Trump has called on supporters to assemble at an airport in Waco, Texas, and cheer on his bid for the Republican Party nomination.
Waco is marking the 30th anniversary of a raid by federal agents on the Branch Davidians religious sect there that resulted in 86 deaths, including four law-enforcement officers.
Some right-wing extremists view the raid as a seminal moment of government overreach.
