Crowds gathered in Waco, Texas, on Saturday, March 25, ahead of the arrival of former US President Donald Trump for the first rally of his 2024 presidential campaign.
Footage captured by Brad Watkins shows people walking toward Waco Regional Airport and gathered at the venue with Trump flags on Saturday afternoon.
Local media reported people began lining up outside the venue early Saturday morning.
The rally comes as Trump faced possible charges by a Manhattan court for his involvement in a hush-money arrangement, and other cases.
According to Trump’s official website, he planned to announce his “initial Texas leadership team of statewide and federal elected officials from across Texas” during the rally..
“Coupled with President Trump’s overwhelming support from grassroots activists, his campaign is uniquely positioned to win the 2024 Texas Republican Presidential Primary,” his website said. Credit: Brad Watkins via Storyful
