In addition, Trump touched on his historic support in the 2020 presidential election.
“More votes, 75 million, than anybody in the history of the presidency. Far more than Clinton, far more than Obama and a record 12 million more than 2016,” he announced. “…I was told by a great pollster… if you get it up to 64 or 65, nobody can beat you. Thank you John. I got it to 75.”
Meanwhile, several reports highlight Trump’s support at the event by saying he remains the most popular figure in the GOP.
