Following his realization that he would no longer be president, Donald Trump decamped to Mar-a-Lago. He spent the next few months basking in the adulation of his fans and sulking. The former president, though, has now hit the road again to hold political rallies.
Trump held his first rally last weekend in Ohio. There was nothing much new in his speech, just the same old claims about white grievance on voter fraud. The former president was set to hold a similar event in Mobile, Alabama this weekend. The rally was reportedly cancelled, though, over concerns that it would be a partisan event rather than a patriotic one.
Howard Koplowitz from Alabama.com notes that, “USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park commissioners reportedly did not sign off on a plan for Trump to hold a rally at the Mobile site.”
Bill Tunnell, the chairman of the commissioners, told the reporter, “The commissioners were concerned that Trump’s appearance on Saturday “was going to be a partisan political event, rather than just a patriotic event planned for that evening.”
Trump, of course, has never showed any kind of interest in holding anything other than partisan political rallies. The former president can barely go a minute before airing his grievances. The Trump team has yet to respond to the apparent cancellation.
