https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/article/2024/jul/09/trump-doral-florida-campaign-rally
Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail in Florida on Tuesday night, hurling insults at Joe Biden and airing a litany of familiar grievances, but declining to name a running mate for November’s general election.

The former president and presumptive Republican nominee was speaking to a crowd of several hundred supporters at his golf club in Doral, a western suburb of Miami, keeping them waiting in 90F heat for a freewheeling monologue that began more than an hour later than scheduled.

There was speculation that he might use his first public appearance since last month’s debate with the president to announce Florida senator Marco Rubio, who was present, as his vice-presidential pick, six days ahead of the Republican national convention (RNC) in Milwaukee.

Instead, Trump delivered a rambling 75-minute speech that included a succession of attacks on Biden and his faltering debate performance, which has raised questions among Democrats about whether the 81-year-old president was robust enough for a second term of office.

He seized on the post-debate turbulence that has prompted calls from some senior Democrats for Biden to step down and for Kamala Harris to be nominated.

“The radical left Democratic party is divided in chaos, and having a full-scale breakdown all because they can’t decide which of their candidates is more unfit to be president, sleepy, crooked Joe Biden or laughing Kamala,” he said, repeating previous derogatory terms for the pair.

“Despite all the Democrat panic this week, the truth is it doesn’t matter who they nominate because we are going to beat any one of them in a thundering landslide.”
>>
Trump has kept a lower than usual profile in the days since the debate, a strategy an aide described as designed to allow Democrats to tear into each other following Biden’s dismal debate performance.

His remarks on Tuesday were notable for adding the vice-president’s name to numerous attacks on Biden policies, and sprinkling in mentions of both Rubio and Byron Donalds, a Republican Florida congressman also believed to be on Trump’s shortlist for vice-president.

Otherwise, it was a standard Trump stump speech, full of evidence-free claims that his 2020 election defeat was fraudulent; baseless accusations that overseas nations were sending to the US “most of their prisoners”; and a laughable assertion that a gathering of supporters numbering in the hundreds was really a crowd of 45,000.

It also touched on the surreal. Biden, he insisted, had raised the price of bacon four-fold.

“We don’t eat bacon any more,” Trump said.

Electric cars, he said, “cheated” the US public because drivers had to stop for three hours to recharge their vehicles after every 45 minutes of driving. And, in an echo of one of the more bizarre debate exchanges with Biden over who was the better golfer, he challenged his White House successor to 18 holes over the Doral course while granting a 10-stroke concession.

“It will be among the most watched sporting events in history, maybe bigger than the Ryder Cup or even the Masters,” Trump said, pledging $1m to a charity of Biden’s choosing if he lost.
>>
Returning to politics, Trump assailed Democrats for tax hikes he said they wanted to impose; criticized Biden for the US military’s chaotic 2021 withdrawal from Afghanistan; and promised to build an “iron dome” missile defense system for the US, if he was elected in November.

Perhaps worn down by the energy-sapping humidity, the crowd appeared mostly subdued, including yawns in the bleachers behind him as Trump drew to a close with slow music playing, and others tapping disinterestedly on their phones.

Holy cope, it's finally settling in for journos that they lost and Trump is gonna win again, isn't it?
>>
>>1311966
Trump isn't going to win again tho
>>
>>1311963
>Bizarre
Biden tried to pretend he could play golf, I'd call his ass out too. It's only bizarre if you're one of those shut-in homunculi they call reporters.
>>
>>1311972
You're going to need a lot more illegals and corpses based on current polling data.
>>
>>1311978
It's amazing you trust the polling data when it has misled you so much in the past.
>>1311974
Biden can ride a bicycle. Trump can't.
>>
>>1311972
Its unfair to play golf against Trump.
Do you know how many hole in ones that man has made?
Most of them. Trump has a hole in one on every hole in everyone of his golf courses. No ones ever seen them though.
>>
>>1311981
Biden fell off that bicycle. You're taking the piss, aren't you?
>>
>>1311981
Yeah in one direction. If Trump is up in the polls, he's massively up in reality.

It sounds like you're as delusional as Trump is. Are the leftists coming for the bacon in your alternate universe too?
>>
>>1311998
Are you denying the price of bacon has skyrocketed?

>>1311993
What's gonna happen at the convention in your fantasies? I'm really interested to get an insight into the mind of someone so deeply delusional that he thinks Biden is physically and mentally fit for anything more challenging than collecting half of Hunter's corruption money and fingerpainting with his own shit.
>>
>>1312010
>Are you denying the price of bacon has skyrocketed?
The quote from Trump was "We don't eat bacon anymore", not "Bacon is too expensive to eat".

Confused about what? You're the one constantly getting bullied in these threads for knowing nothing about board culture, getting tilted by memes, and who thinks Joe Biden is an expert bicyclist.

The kangaroo court shit boosted his numbers. Nobody cares. Your gambit failed.

Yes, you try to invent all new context when Trump says something embarrassing.

>>1312023
And you accused others of being from 2016 lmao. Reddit's your board, fuck off back there.

>>1312022
Reality is reality. You had to break multiple statutes of limitations and invent a completely new legal theory that doesn't follow "innocent until proven guilty", relying on the testimony of a confirmed perjurer, and you still lost thanks to SCOTUS. How's that cock taste, faggot?

This is what you're defending. The bacon comment was merely more evidence of Trump's delirium.
>>

Trump fucked a porn star and then tried to cover it up with campaign money. This is a fact. Cope.
>>
>>1312029
>Subjective quote from malding journalists
I do not care at all. Every single one of those that came close to being factual was something Trump was completely correct on.

No one cares if you care or not. You are merely denying reality like you people always do.
>>
>>1312033
Not seeing it. I see Cohen misbehaving, but he's a confirmed perjurer so I can safely dismiss everything else he said. I thought fucking porn stars was empowering strong, noble, beautiful, brave, stunning sex workers? How un-progressive of you to be so prudish.
>>
>>1312038
>Not seeing it
Of course you aren't seeing it. You're paid to do anything you can to not see it.

Where do you people get this shit from?
>>
>>1312037
Then why are you so upset about it?

That's your job, and that of the lefty press. For example, pretending a man in a dress is a woman. Or that Biden can ride a bicycle.

Blatant samefagging. Sure, you're not a leftist, lmao. Just a "concerned fencesitter" shilling for the DNC. I'd be shocked you have the gall to accuse anyone else of headcanon, but anyone with a brain who isn't completely cynical deserted the Democrats years ago.

>>1312143
You should totally keep telling people who've seen their grocery bills skyrocket that they're lying and faking it, that will go over well in an election year
>>
>>1312158
Ok but what does that have to do with Trump lying about the price of bacon?
>>
>>1312158
1. Trump's never seen his grocery bill
2. Facts don't care about your feelings
3. If you actually give a shit about the issue, you should have half a clue what you're talking about and be able to offer REAL examples, not imagined ones.
4. Republicans have a consistently horrid record on the economy and have zero fucking proposals to address price increases or help people cope with them. In fact, they have proposals to make their impact worse on people that actually are struggling to pay their bills. Anyone bringing up the price of groceries, which absolutely IS a real issue, to argue for Republicans is an idiot or a demon, and they deserve to be told as such. You don't solve broken world views or economic woes by coddling fools and psychopaths.

In sum, fuck off.
>>
>>1312274
None of that answered the points raised here >>1312158

That's known as a deflection and a sign that you've lost the argument.

>>1312143
And who caused the inflation, which wages haven't kept up with due to Democrats refusing sensible tariffs? Joe Biden.
>>
>>1312274
>Republicans have a consistently horrid record on the economy
lmao since when? Every time the economy implodes a Democrat is demonstrably behind it, or have you forgotten the subprime mortgages under Clinton, the Obama years, and now the Biden years? That's 3 for 3. Any time the economy does remotely well under a Democrat, it's because of some specific industry they have nothing to do with doing well, like the dotcom boom.
>>
>>1312281
>And who caused the inflation, which wages haven't kept up with due to Democrats refusing sensible tariffs? Joe Biden.
Wrong

It's kind of amazing how they say the most confident, dramatic lies which then explode the moment someone with a bit more patience than I have takes a cursory look at them. High credit to all the Anons in this thread who did their research, and I hope you don't mind me linking your posts in another thread where the same Democrat retard is having the same meltdown and pretending he's never heard of inflation.
>>
>>1312350
Now do when the increases to deficit were signed into law. You know, cause spending commitments are usually decided advance.

Dishonest cunt.
>>
>>1312398
All they have is their lies.
>>
>>1312291
>Clinton
Presided over a literally the longest period of sustained economic growth in our nation's history
>Obama
dug us out of Bush's Great Recession
>Biden
dug us out of Trump's COVID-19 Recession

All three reduced the deficit while doing it too.

And the subprime mortgage crisis was under Bush, you fucking idiot. That was the lead up to the Great Recession.
>>
>>1312400
Why the revisionist history?
Everyone knows Clinton caused the 2008 recession at this point in history.
>>
>>1312400
>Clinton
See above, he had nothing to do with the dotcom boom and forced banks to loan to people who had no way to repay the loan because it meant more black homeowners which looked good for the Democrats. Then Bush fixed it. Then Obama broke it again. Then Trump fixed it. Then China broke it again, then Biden made it worse.
>Reduced the deficit
lmao no.

But you do, Trump. As do your cultists.
If they can afford to be fleeced by you, I mean 'donate' to you, they can still afford bacon and your opinions are wrong, Donnie.
>>
>>1311966
Not if they have anything to say about it. They'll just run another half-dozen 'Biden must step down' articles on the front page and conveniently forget to cover Trump's rally in any way.
