Former President Donald Trump broke many norms during his time in office. And Trump continues to go against what is traditionally expected of former presidents and their families now that he’s out of office. Trump started holding campaign rallies again; he’s visited the U.S. Southern border and held press conferences. On July 3, the former president held a campaign rally in Florida. Reuters reported that Trump “used his speech to denounce the policies of his successor, Democratic President Joe Biden, and repeat his false claim that he lost the 2020 election due to fraud.”
At the Florida rally, former President Trump also used his time on stage to rally against the criminal charges brought against the Trump Organization in New York state. Reuters reported that Trump told the crowd, “They’ve mobilized every power of government to come after me, my family, my wonderful employees and my company solely because of politics.” According to Time, Trump is still popular with Republicans. Time reported on a Monmouth University poll that revealed 36% of Republicans believe that Trump won in November, and 57% of Republicans believe President Biden won but only because of election fraud.
