TRUMP ‘REVENGE’ TOUR KICKS OFF WITH A RALLY IN OHIO

Former US President Donald Trump held a rally over the weekend in Ohio, his first since his supporters' deadly attack on the Capitol, as he aims to bolster allies, berate his enemies and cement his influence over the Republican Party, Nathan Layne reported for Reuters.

While Trump has made speeches at Republican events since his election defeat by Democratic President Joe Biden, the rally in a state he carried in the 2020 election marked a return to the kind of freewheeling mass gatherings that have been critical to retaining the support of his base.


Critics said Trump should have prepared two graves before embarking on a revenge tour, as Confucius said, with one for him and the other for his enemies.


All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

It also marks the start of his public events lashing out at elected Republicans who he views as having crossed him. He will campaign for former White House aide Max Miller, who has launched a primary challenge against Representative Anthony Gonzalez, one of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol that left five dead including a Capitol Police officer.


Trump has vowed to campaign against all 10. He has also endorsed a challenger to Senator Lisa Murkowski, the only one of the seven Senate Republicans who voted to convict him in his January impeachment trial who is up for re-election in 2022.


Government & politics: Politicians, government officials and delegates standing in front of their country flags in a political event in the financial district.

Democrats' razor-thin majorities in both chambers of Congress will be on the line in the 2022 midterm elections and history favors Republicans' chances of gaining seats in those contests.


The Ohio event, at a fairground in Wellington, about 40 miles (64 km) southwest of Cleveland, will be the first of three public appearances, followed by a trip to the US-Mexico border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott on June 30 and a rally in Sarasota, Florida, on July 3.
