Former President Trump received a raucous ovation when he told the Georgia Republican Convention crowd that he will “never yield” in his first speech since being indicted by the Biden DOJ.
A massive crowd lined up hours before the former president and current GOP frontrunner for the 2024 nomination was set to speak in Columbus Georgia on Saturday. A separate crowd greeted Trump at the airport, who proceeded to shake hands and thank his supporters.

Upon taking the stage, the former president received a standing ovation and enthusiastic round of applause from the crowd.
“Everyone knows I’ve put everything on the line and I will never yield, I never yield,” Trump said to a thunderous round of applause and cheers. “I will never be deterred; I will never stop fighting for you.”
“I didn’t need this, I had a great life,” he said sarcastically, drawing laughs. “People said, ‘would you do it again,’ well the answer is yes, because we’re going to make America great again.”
The Deep State and Vulture RINOs are going to be very disappointed.
President Trump is not going to be intimidated by phony investigations designed to force him out of the 2024 Presidential Race.

“On November 5, 2024, we’re going to stand up to the corrupt political establishment – we’re going to evict a totally corrupt president, Joe Biden, from the White House,” Trump went on to say, again receiving overwhelming applause.
“And we’re going to finish the job that we started, the most successful presidency,” he continued, to which the crowd responded with chants of “USA!”

The rally comes days after a grand jury empaneled by special counsel Jack Smith opted to indict Trump on several federal charges, including mishandling classified information and obstruction of justice. The Biden Department of Justice broke with more than 200 years of protocol in becoming the first administration to criminally charge a former president and chief political rival.
