What are you searching for? Trump Shows Up Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen With Record-Setting NJ 100,000 Rally Crowd

On Saturday, 45th President Donald Trump made history with a campaign rally in Wildwood Beach in New Jersey that had an attendance of 100,000 people. Trump’s rally was larger than singer Taylor Swift’s blockbuster concert in New Jersey and doubled the size of singer Bruce Springsteen’s New Jersey concert. On August 30, 2023, Bruce Springsteen held a concert in East Rutherford, New Jersey, along with Jake Clemons, Max Weinberg, Steven Van Zandt, and the E Street Band at the MetLife Stadium and had a crowd size of “50,000 strong,” according to USA Today, half the size of Trump’s New Jersey rally. On May 29, 2023, Taylor Swift held a three-night set of concerts at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and had an attendance of 72,802 at the final concert, nearly 30,000 fewer people than Trump’s New Jersey rally.

During Trump’s Saturday rally, Trump was joined on the stage by New York Giants NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor and Super Bowl MVP O.J. Anderson, who both showed their support for Trump. “As you can see today, we’re expanding the electoral map. We’re going to win the state of New Jersey. If you want to keep it going, you have to vote for a gentleman named Donald J. Trump,” Trump told the record-setting crowd.

“We’re joined tonight and today by two incredible football legends, New York Giants Super Bowl heroes. I guess I would have to say Lawrence Taylor is the greatest defensive player ever. I’m a little prejudiced, but I would say that,” Trump said. “And a man who was possessed during the Super Bowl. He was a Super Bowl MVP. Otis O.J. Anderson, come on up, fellas, for a second. Come on up. These guys. Look at him. Lawrence, you look like you could play immediately. They could use you. Come on up. These guys are serious players,” Trump said. “You know they’re my golfing partners, too. Tell them. Can Trump play golf? You have to tell them,” Trump added.

“I just wanted to say, I grew up a Democrat, and I’ve always been a Democrat — until I met this man right here. I’ll tell you what: He will not have to worry about nobody in my family ever vote for a Democrat again, OK?” Taylor said on stage. “Don’t you just love that guy? I tell you, it has been a very exciting day. You guys, not one person left here. You’re still here, yelling and screaming,” Anderson added. A spokesperson for the city of Wildwood told the Associated Press that an

estimated 100,000 people attended Trump’s beachfront campaign rally in Wildwood. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ) even described the rally as the largest political gathering in the state’s history.

“As you can see, today, we’re expanding the electoral maps because we are going to officially play in the state of New Jersey. We’re going to win the state of New Jersey. Millions of people in so-called blue states are joining our movement based on love, intelligence, and a thing called common sense,” Trump said. “We’re going to try and win the state of New Jersey. I want the people to know that I love it. You know, it’s not just going to be like, gee, maybe we can get close. We’re going to win it. We have a tremendous rally and hope you’re all going to be there. It’s in Wildwood, New Jersey. It’s going to be a big crowd,” Trump touted on Friday,” Trump told local radio station New Jersey 105.1 in the Garden State on Friday.

Trump’s New Jersey rally is even larger than his July 2023 record-setting rally in Pickens, South Carolina, which had a crowd over 20 times larger than the town’s population. Pickens, South Carolina, has a population of 3,371, according to the United States Census Bureau. Trump revealed in a post on his top-rated social media platform, Truth Social, that over 75,000 supporters attended his rally despite temperatures being over 90 degrees. “Over 75,000 people came to our incredible Rally yesterday in South Carolina, despite an almost 100 degree temperature. It was amazing, THE PEOPLE WERE GREAT. Thank you, Pickens,” Trump added.
