Following the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, social media companies like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have been silencing Republicans, forcing millions of people to use alternative sites such as Parler and Rumble.
Now, one of those sites is about to see a big boost in users, as the former president has created his own alternative social media account. Following a massive rally on Saturday in which tens of thousands of people were in attendance, Trump posted a video to his new Rumble account, and within a matter of days, it has already been viewed nearly a million times, which is substantial for a brand new account.
The video itself is the full two-hour coverage of the “Save America” rally in Ohio over the weekend in which Trump reportedly spoke to over 40,000 supporters.
“Police departments are being gutted. Illegal aliens are overrunning their borders,” Trump said, criticizing the Biden administration for failing to secure our southern border. “Drug cartels and human traffickers are back in business like never before.”
“Look at schools… Left-wing indoctrination camps,” the former president went on to say. “Critical Race Theory is being forced on our military. Gas prices are spiking. Inflation is skyrocketing. And China, Russia, and Iran are humiliating our country.”
“Joe Biden is destroying our country right before our very own eyes. The number one priority for anyone who wants to save America is to pour every single ounce of energy you have into winning a gigantic victory in the midterms, and 2024,” he told the crowd.
The former president then began talking about one of the many topics that seem to get Republicans removed from social media: the 2020 election and the alleged fraud that cost him the White House.
“There is no more dire threat today than the crisis on our southern border, other than, perhaps, our elections,” Trump said. “That’s probably the biggest threat of all, huh? What happened in the election, it’s a disgrace, but we’ll be talking about that.”
The president went on to say that, for years, Hillary Clinton claimed that she had actually won the 2016 election, yet she received no backlash from the same social media platforms that have removed him from their sites. “They censor, cancel, and smear you if you look into the election today. They’re not looking into the election, they’re looking into people who want the truth.”
Trump also had some harsh words for the “Big Tech” companies that continue to silence conservatives on their platforms.
“We will send big tech tyrants a message they cannot ever censor, cancel, or ignore,” Trump said as he was met with cheers from the crowd. “We will take back the House. We will take back the Senate. And we will take back America. And we will do it soon.”

Photos leading up to the rally showed cars lined up for miles, making it clear that support for the 45th president has not wavered following his loss to Joe Biden just a few months ago. While there has been no official announcement (as we are three years away from a presidential election), most people expect Donald Trump to run again, as he has become the face of the Republican Party.
