(CNN)Former President Donald Trump plans to resume his signature campaign-style rallies in a series of battleground states this summer as he inches closer to a decision on whether to mount a comeback presidential bid in 2024.
“We’ll be doing one in Florida, we’re going to do one in Ohio, we’re going to do one in North Carolina,” the 45th President told the right-wing media outfit One America News in an interview Thursday, adding that he would release a rally schedule “relatively soon.”
“We’ll be announcing them very soon over the next week or two,” Trump said.
Aides close to the ex-President’s political operation previously told CNN that Trump has been eager to return to the rally stage since earlier this year and had tasked a small group of advisers to look into the logistics of planning such events. The freewheeling MAGA rallies — some of which ran more than two hours in below-freezing temperatures near the end of his 2020 campaign — have long been Trump’s primary way of galvanizing his core supporters and generating headlines.
While he is not on the ballot for the 2022 midterm elections, Trump has publicly committed to assisting embattled GOP incumbents and insurgent Republican candidates who have shown fealty to him and his false claims of mass election fraud in the 2020 presidential contest. That includes in Ohio and North Carolina, where crowded fields of Senate Republican hopefuls are already taking shape — but where Trump has declined to make endorsement
