Donald Trump Makes it Official: Trump Will Hold Rally in Downtown Phoenix, AZ … Maybe He Will Pardon Sheriff Joe and Endorse Primary Challenge Against Sen. Flake
PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE AND HOLD RALLY IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA …
President Donald Trump has made it official, he will hold a rally in downtown Phoenix, AZ next Tuesday. President Trump’s tweet read, “Join me at 7:00 P.M. on Tuesday, August 22nd in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Center!” The Democrat Mayor of Phoenix asked Trump to postpone the event, The Donald took it under advisement and said, I don’t think so. President Trump will go around the bias, liberal media and talk directly to the America people. Look for President Trump to endorse a GOP primary challenger against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) who has been nothing but a disappointment. Trump tweeted regarding Flake, “Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” Also, it would be great is President Trump used this as the backdrop to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign-style rally in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, making his first presidential trip to the West as his administration confronts an uproar over his tepid response to a deadly white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Trump will take the stage at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m., according to an announcement Wednesday morning. Attendees must register to obtain tickets.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton wrote in a statement Wednesday he was disappointed to learn of Trump’s visit so close to the violent events in Charlottesville. The mayor called on Trump to delay the visit. [...]
And Flake, who is running for re-election in 2018, this month published a book critical of “Trumpism,” calling for a “rejection of destructive politics and a return to principle.” Trump has threatened to help finance a Republican challenger to Flake — saying he’d provide $10 million — but it’s unclear if he will follow through.
The visit also comes as Trump has discussed a presidential pardon for another controversial Arizona Republican, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 85, who has been convicted of criminal contempt after a judge found he had defied a court order intended to stamp out his signature immigration patrols.
