Pres. Trump ignites enthusiastic Phoenix crowd

Reiterates his unequivocal endorsement of Sen. Martha McSally

President Donald Trump swooped in to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix Wednesday evening to thunderous applause and cheers after speaking earlier in Nevada and California, with a return trip to Las Vegas that same might, where the Democrat debate was an internecine bloodbath — and in advance of Saturday’s Democrat caucus. Rather than being weary from the travel and speeches, he was energized, and that energy ignited the massive crowd inside and the overfill throng of thousands outside the Phoenix arena, some waiting for two days to ensure access to hear President Trump. The coliseum has a seating capacity of nearly 15,000.

He fittingly assessed the party of his strange lot of Democrat opponents, by calling it out as, “The party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment.” He contrasted the Republican Party as, “The party of the American worker, the American family, and the American dream!” 

Opening for President Trump were Donald Trump, Jr. and attorney and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle, who addressed the eager crowd. He was introduced by AZ GOP chairman Dr. Kelly Ward. When the president took to the stage, the coliseum rocked with roaring appreciation. Pres. Trump recounted some of his accomplishments, such as appointing a record 218 federal judges and nominating two new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, and the continued construction of the border wall to appreciative cheers as he referred to the strong economy American have enjoyed and the historically highest employment figures.

Joining him at the onset of the event were Gov. Doug Ducey and Arizona’s Republican U.S. Senator Martha McSally. He also introduced the GOP Congressional Delegation of U.S. Reps. Paul Gosar, (CD4); Andy Biggs, (CD 5); David Schweikert, (CD 6); and Debbie Lesko, (CD 8) who spoke to the crowd and named standout AZ state legislators, who joined him on stage.  Former sheriff Joe Arpaio, running for reelection, was greeted by thunderous cheers and applause as he made his way to his front row seat. The president warmly acknowledged our military including a 100-year-old World War II navy veteran, Ervin Julian, who had to be carried into the coliseum, so great was his desire to be on hand to greet President Trump.

Trump repeated, in the clearest of terms, his support for Sen. Martha McSally, saying, Martha McSally has my “complete and total support, and has my endorsement.”

Those words shoot holes through inexperienced and brash Daniel McCarthy’s contention that Trump’s endorsement of McSally was given prior to McCarthy entering the race. McCarthy uses the theme,Demand Daniel,” (interview video) though those who are making that demand must be so far down the rabbit’s hole they are impossible to hear.

President Trump closed his remarks by declaring, “Ladies and gentlemen of Arizona, the best is yet to come!” It’s a cinch to believe his second term will prove his prediction to be flawless.

    Arizona is a much more welcoming place for the President now that McAnus and Flakey are both gone!

      Very true! Republicrats or RINOs are more reprehensible than actual Democrats, since Dems aren’t infiltrating the GOP as deceitful turncoats Republicrats intend to undermine the Republican Party and use it for their own nefarious schemes. As you pointed out, McCain and Flake epitomized that concept.

      I was at the event last night. Pres. Trump was in fine form and gave a stellar speech.The wave of excitement was something to see!

    • Trevor says:

      Thank God.

    • just me says:

      Yeah, now it will be McSally as their replacement. I know many of you think she is “one of us”, but I do not agree – I hope I am wrong, but leopards do not change their spots….just sayin….

      • East Valley Conservative says:

        I trust Pres. Trump. He hasn’t disappointed me yet.
        “Pres. Reagan.” was always my response whenever the topic of top notch presidents was raised. Since the election of Donald Trump, my response has changed. Reagan had a smooth delivery style and impressed me as a decent person who loved the USA. But he also opened up the amnesty floodgates to illegals when he signed the supposed one time amnesty Simpson-Mazzoli bill in 1986.

  2. Trevor says:

    Andy Biggs is gonna get called a “traitor” or a “turncoat” by the McCarthy people because in his speech he is backing McSally 100 percent.

    • jake sez says:

      Love Trump and the team this year. I am sorry about McSally but she was picked for special attention from our President because she is 14 points down against Kelly. If you wish to walk over the cliff like lemmings, then so be it.

      How about some attention for the candidate against Stanton? He is one that need to be defeated. Can’t find any articles in support of this person when we need to take back the House of Representatives.

      As far as Biggs is concerned, he is one of our best, but, as usual
      you are trying to put words in someone else’s mouth. We will let you know when we have a problem with one of our people. At least we are not afraid of losing our place in the crowd by raising a voice of dissent.

    I had a headache earlier in the day and gave brief consideration to not going, although I was registered and didn’t want to miss Pres. Trump.

    Turns out, he was my cure-all, just as he has been for the country. Even with the music booming before the event began, I was re-energized. Dr. Trump made me well again!!

  4. Pima Pal says:

    Seeing and hearing the President in person was worth the wait! He’s truly electrifying. I’m so proud of my vote for him and look forward to doing so again. I drove up to Phoenix from Tucson, but I was seated next to people who came from Colorado….just a bit further.

  5. Ellsworth says:

    This is an example of the bloodletting within the Democrat primary. It’s hilarious, although the date is wrong…should have been 2020.

  6. Casper says:

    All I can add is that last night’s rally was beyond outstanding! I’ve been to two others locally, and was glad this one had seats as well as plenty of bathrooms.

    Donald Trump is a man of action and I look forward to voting for him in November. I had to be persuaded in 2015. That was a mistake on my part then, that will not be repeated. He has done so much for the good of the United States and American citizens. Pres. Trump is a true patriot.

  7. Frankly Speaking says:

    President Trump had the crowd super-charged as only he can. So glad I was there!!

  8. Kimball says:

    Somewhat off topic, but I read a couple of days ago that Mitt Romney, following his lone impeachment vote, was dis-invited to the Conservative CPAC conference.

    It couldn’t happen to a more deserving jerk! He deserves to have a solid challenger.

  9. JCF says:

    Of course Gov. Ducey was there. I just wish he would be more supportive of our 2nd amendment and rescind his compliance for refugee settlements in our state. Someone told me he had disavowed that latter at the Maricopa Cnty. annual mtg. – no his statement there related to sanctuary cities.

  10. Kathy says:

    I was at the Pres. Trump rally yesterday – It was AWESOME!!!
    Don Jr. was on fire!!!! Pres. Trump was AWESOME!!!!

    I met a guy who was a Democrat, voted for Obama twice – he said, boy, what a mess that turned out to be. He then registered as a Republican, voted for Pres. Trump and will vote for Trump again. He said he could not believe how blind he had been. So encouraging to see & hear people see TRUTH!!!

    What an AWESOME day!!!
