Former President Donald Trump raised the possibility of holding a rally at Madison Square Garden as a part of his strategy to leverage support in predominantly Democratic states, including New York. He stated, “I’m going to make a heavy play for New York, heavy play for New Jersey, heavy play for Virginia, heavy play for New Mexico, and a heavy play for a state that hasn’t been won in years, Minnesota. I may rent Madison Square Garden and that’s the belly of the beast, right?”
Trump’s comments come shortly after a poll revealed the 45th President is within 10 points of Joe Biden in the Empire State, and just. few weeks since he brought the house down at a packed Christmas gala at Cipriani, Wall Street, hosted by the New York Young Republican Club.
Trump revealed his intention to hold rallies and give speeches in those states. He implied that a rally at Madison Square Garden, known as the “belly of the beast,” would be a significant political move and a substantial investment of campaign resources.
“That doesn’t mean I’m going to work them as hard as I work Pennsylvania, where I’m doing very well,” he told Breitbart News, adding, “[b]ut we’re going to do these other states too, and it will be a heavy move.”
On the subject of potential support within New York, Trump highlighted the presence of reputed Republicans, including Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY). He stated, “So, I believe we have a chance to win New York. I believe we have a chance to win New Jersey.”
