Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced that he will hold a rally in the South Bronx next week after tens of thousands of supporters showed up for his event in the Democratic stronghold of New Jersey last Saturday.

The New York City rally will be Trump’s first in his native state since his successful 2016 presidential campaign, The New York Post reported. Team Trump announced the South Bronx rally in a statement that slammed President Joe Biden’s “failed policies” from which “New Yorkers have suffered greatly.”

“The Empire State, a place near to President Trump’s heart, has been decimated by Biden,” the Trump campaign added. “President Trump will ease the financial pressures placed on households and re-establish law and order in New York!”

Trump spends most of his time in New York City during the week as his hush-money trial continues, keeping him off the campaign trail for four days a week. The former president, however, has sought to reach out to voters in the Big Apple during his criminal trial. In April, Trump met with bodega workers in Manhattan to discuss the rise in crime in New York City, and earlier this month, the former president delivered pizzas to firefighters at the New York City Fire Department.

“We’re going to run very hard in New York. We have a good chance of winning New York, in my opinion,” Trump told reporters outside the Manhattan courtroom last month. “We’re going to give it a shot. We’re very close in New York, I understand. We’re leading in the country by a lot. As you saw yesterday, we’re up by a lot in every swing state, so I think we’re going to do very well.”

Trump’s South Bronx rally will take place on Thursday, May 23, in Crotona Park. According to the Trump campaign, it has obtained a permit for up to 3,500 people to attend the rally. Team Trump added that the former president will focus on the economy, crime, and the illegal immigration crisis during his speech, according to the Post.


“We can Make America Great Again by tackling lawlessness head-on, ceasing the endless flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border, and reversing the detrimental effects of inflation by restoring people’s wealth,” the Trump campaign said.
