An adviser to President Trump confirmed his signature MAGA rallies are making a comeback in just a few weeks. That’s according to The Hill Monday, which also reported two events are set to be held in June and one in early July. The rallies have not yet been formally announced, but they are expected to resemble President Trump’s airport rallies during his 2020 reelection campaign.
President Trump is also slated to visit North Carolina to address the state’s GOP convention. The state’s party chairman confirmed the news in a statement Monday, saying the organization is honored to welcome the 45th president to the June convention. He added, the president promised to put America first, in turn, winning over North Carolina in 2020 by keeping that promise.

The 45th president continues to have a strong grip on the Republican Party as he has made various endorsements of Republicans in upcoming races.
President Trump’s address will be his first outside of his Mar-a-Lago resort since his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The event is geared towards helping the Republican Party take back control of the Senate and House of Representatives.
Meanwhile, Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R) issued a warning to anti-Trump Republicans hoping to push President Trump out of the party. He weighed in on the landscape of the GOP during an interview over the weekend as some of his colleagues, such as Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R) and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R), work to erase Trump’s influence within the GOP.
Crenshaw said he believes President Trump will continue to be an influential figure among Republicans.
“I believe that you’re not going to excommunicate a former president and I refuse to go into this sort of black and white thinking…these are complex human relationships that involve millions of people,” he explained. “I’m a rational human being about this…I refuse to allow this drama to engulf us.”
Crenshaw went on to say he agrees with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in terms of not letting the party get engulfed by what he called “drama.” He added, party outliers won’t be successful at getting others to agree with them when it comes to Trump
