2024 Heating Up

TRUMP OF THE TOWN: Former Prez. Packs South Carolina Town With 50K Supporters [SEE IT]

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.03.23

Former President and GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump packed Perkins, South Carolina over the weekend with a crowd of more than 50,000 supporters, Fox News reports.

The town only has 3,400 residents.

From Fox News:

The leading Republican presidential candidate barnstormed in Pickens, a town of about 3,400 residents, on Saturday, speaking to more than 50,000 people who gathered at the downtown venue and lined the surrounding streets, according to Pickens police chief Randal Beach.

Beach told the Associated Press on Sunday that authorities were unable to calculate the exact number, but he estimated the rally was attended by “somewhere between 50-55,000” people.

South Carolina’s first-in-the-South presidential primary makes it popular among GOP hopefuls, many of whom have already held events in the state. None of the other candidates in the race, however, drew an audience like Trump, who continues to dominate in 2024 polls.

“There’s nowhere else I’d rather be to kick off the Fourth of July weekend than right here on Main Street, with thousands of hardworking South Carolina patriots who believe in God, family and country,” Trump said Saturday.
