Trump Speaks to Massive Crowd in Wildwood, New Jersey

Former President Trump held a massive rally in New Jersey over the weekend.

A spokesperson for the City of Wildwood, the town in which the event took place, told the Associated Press she estimated there were between 80,000 and 100,000 people at the rally.

“We’re going to win New Jersey,” Trump told the crowd.

“As you can see today, we’re expanding the electoral map because we’re going to win the state of New Jersey,” Trump said. “I think we’re going to win them all. All across America, millions of people, so-called blue states, are joining our movement based on love, intelligence, and a thing called common sense.”  

The former president highlighted the ways Biden was “draining” the United States economy and effecting families.

“The Biden price hikes are continuing to drain over $1,000 from the typical New Jersey family budget every single month,” Trump said, noting that the price of everything from hot dogs, to chicken, to gasoline and bacon, has gone up because of inflation.

Trump also attacked Biden’s handling of the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza and anti-Israel protesters on college campuses. 

“He’s surrendering our college campuses to anarchists, jihadist freaks and anti-American extremists who are trying to tear down our American flag. They want to tear down every single place they go,” Trump said.

In October 2023, New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin brought forth election fraud charges against Democrats Alex Mendez and Dr. Henrilynn Ibezim.

The alleged election fraud occurred between 2020 and 2021.

Mendez, the president of Paterson City Council, is facing charges pertaining to mail-in ballots. He previously faced charges in June 2020 and February 2021.

According to Platkin, Mendez collected a number of ballots from homes, violating state law as candidates cannot collect ballots for the district where they are running.

Platkin also alleges that Mendez’s campaign destroyed the ballots that were not supportive.

Executive Director of the Office of Public Integrity and Accountability, Thomas Eicher, stated, “We allege that Mendez and his associates unlawfully collected ballots and tampered with ballots to give him an unfair edge in the race for the 3rd Ward seat on the Paterson City Council.”
