Trump praised, but also criticized at a Republican rally

Former President Donald Trump received a standing ovation at a GOP rally in Las Vegas on Saturday, but many conservative leaders criticized him for the recent disappointing results in the midterm elections.

Trump, 76, in his first speech since announcing his bid for the 2024 White House on Tuesday, paid tribute to his tenure and praised his donors and members of the Republican Jewish Alliance, which until Sunday holds its annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The former president refused to take responsibility for the results of the Republican elections, especially his skills, in the “midterm elections” on November 8. On the other hand, he said, the Republican Party was “much bigger and stronger than it was before I arrived.”

He again questioned Democrat Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential victory on Saturday.

“The election was rigged,” said the billionaire, who spoke via video call, but the public, who warmly welcomed him, did not respond to these remarks.

He was added at the last minute to the list of speakers at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition.

His participation raised expectations, with many of his critics who preceded him calling for turning the page and betting on “strong leadership”.

I have great politics for the Republican Party. “Stop supporting the insane, disqualified candidates in our primaries,” said New Hampshire (NE) Gov. Chris Sununu, without naming Trump.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was more blunt in his speech and insisted that Donald Trump be held accountable for the results of the midterm elections.

Donald Trump chose the candidates by one criterion, one only. It wasn’t about their competence, experience, wisdom, or charisma. (…]But whether or not they believe the 2020 presidential election is stolen. If you believe it, I support you, if you don’t, I reject you,” launched Christie, who spoke to the crowd a few hours before the former president.

“Well, let me tell you, this is not what this party stands for. It is not what it should stand for in the future. We have to stop this now. We are losing because Donald Trump has put himself above everything else.”

For his part, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan again criticized Mr. Trump in his speech on Friday.

“Even Trump’s most ardent supporters say they’ve had enough…,” Hogan said.

In the midterm elections, the Republican Party promised a “red wave” that would sweep the Democratic Party out of both houses of Congress in Washington.

However, the Republicans only gained a slim majority in the House of Representatives, after defeating several Donald Trump-backed candidates. This was also the case in the Senate—which remained in Democratic hands—and in crucial states.

On Saturday, Trump was preceded by former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

For his part, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – who served under the Trump administration and to whom observers have also presented presidential ambitions – was present at the rally.

Our party needs strong leaders, now more than ever. Without naming Donald Trump, he said on Friday that celebrities and celebrities wouldn’t do the job.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is also likely to run in the 2024 Republican primary, was victoriously re-elected in his home state, leading some conservative media outlets to see him as the new leader of the GOP.
