President Trump made Alabama state history on Friday evening, drawing a crowd of thousands to Montgomery where he delivered a speech to Republicans at the Alabama GOP Dinner.
According to Trump’s Senior Advisor Jason Miller, 2,700 people were in attendance. “Their largest ever!” Miller wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Friday night’s dinner marked the first formal appearance and campaign event that the president has made since he was arraigned on Thursday in Washington, D.C. President Trump’s arraignment this week also marked the third time that he has faced charges in less than six months.

Trump held no quarter on Friday, scorching special prosecutor Jack Smith as a “deranged human being” and a “lost soul” who was doing the bidding of the Biden regime.
He noted that his legal persecution was an effort to criminalize political speech. He explained, “They’re trying to make it illegal to question the results of a bad election…But only a party that cheats in elections would try to make it illegal…”
The president also said that the radical left and the media had “never recovered” from his landslide victory in 2016, stating that this shock is “why their hatred is so great.”
“These people…are lunatics,” he cracked.
Trump’s comments were well-received by the eager crowd as he promised to root out Deep State corruption, gain independence from China, bring peace to Russia and Ukraine, and restore economic balance in America.
He vowed in his remarks, “We will completely finish the job – on Election Day 2024, we’re going to evict Crooked Joe Biden from the White House…We’re going to expel the criminals and thugs from the halls of power in Washington, D.C. and we’re going to make America great again!”
