Cleveland, Ohio — Former President Donald Trump is expected to hold his first rally following the 2020 presidential election in Cleveland at the end of June, according to media reports.
“Trump is expected to go Cleveland, Ohio on Jun 26 for a rally, and Tampa, Florida on July 3, per advisers,” Washington Post political reporter Josh Dawsey tweeted.

Trump won Ohio by 8 percentage points in 2020 over President Joe Biden, a Democrat.
The news comes after Trump told far-right news outlet One America News (OAN) last month that he plans to get back on the road for rallies in the coming weeks.
“Relatively soon, we’ll be doing one in Florida, we’re gonna do one in Ohio, we’re going to do one in North Carolina,” Trump told OAN. “We’ll be announcing them very soon over the next week or two, and I think we’ll probably start in Florida and Ohio and we’ll be announcing the rallies very shortly.”
The Ohio Democratic Party said in a statement released shortly after the announcement that Trump is coming to the state only to help himself.
Trump spent 4 years betraying Ohio workers & now that our economy is back on track thx to Dem leadership, Ohio families are looking forward not back. The only Ohioans a Trump visit will help are the GOP candidates who can save on travel expenses to FL to kiss his ring in person. https://t.co/yqmWyrsTfa
