MAGA supporters flock to Ohio to attend 1st Trump rally since January’s Capitol unrest (VIDEOS)
Donald Trump fans are assembling at an Ohio fairground where the former president is scheduled to give a speech that will mark the start of a series of political events endorsing candidates running against his political nemeses.
Trump will hold a rally in Wellington, Ohio on Saturday – his first since his January 6 event in Washington, DC that ended in the Capitol being stormed by a group of violent demonstrators.
A video posted to social media shows a large field with rows of parked cars, apparent evidence that “hundreds” of Trump supporters have arrived early to see the former president speak.

Trump is appearing in Ohio to throw his support behind former White House aide Max Miller, who has launched a primary challenge against Representative Anthony Gonzalez, one of the 10 GOP Congress members who voted to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting the January 6 unrest at the Capitol.
In addition to the rally, Trump will be fundraising for Miller on Saturday, with prices ranging from $1,000 for reception and priority seating at the rally, to $15,000 for a photo with the former president and VIP seating, according to The Blade.Also on rt.com Longtime Democrat turned Trump supporter becomes first sentenced over January 6 Capitol ‘insurrection’
