Donald Trump will say America’s SURVIVE is at stake in the midterm elections if he returns to the political spotlight
Former President Donald Trump will portray next year’s midterm elections as a struggle for America’s survival when he delivers his first speech in months on Saturday night.
His speech to the Republican state convention in North Carolina is the next step in his return to the political limelight.
Two outdoor rallies are scheduled for later this month as Trump continues to deliberate at the White House in 2024.
His Saturday night speech — his first since February — will include an attack on Democrats’ attempts to overhaul voting laws.
“America’s survival depends on our ability to elect Republicans at every level — starting with the midterm elections next year,” he will say, according to preliminary extracts obtained by DailyMail.com.
“Together we are going to defend our freedoms, we are going to stand up for our values, and we are going to take back our country!”

Trump’s speech will target President Joe Biden and tell his supporters: ‘America’s survival depends on our ability to elect Republicans at every level – starting with the midterm elections next year’
Trump will also use the speech to say that history has proved him right to point the finger at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which he claimed last year was the origin of the coronavirus pandemic
The line reflects elements of his 2020 campaign, when he warned that Democrats planned to destroy American values of freedom and independence.
In his speech, Trump will also claim justification for pointing the finger at China for its role in the rise of COVID-19, when political, scientific and media institutions downplayed the idea of lab leak.
“The media, the Democrats and the so-called experts are finally admitting what I first said 13 months ago: the evidence shows the virus originated in a Chinese government lab,” he will say.
In recent weeks, a string of leading scientists have admitted they were too hasty to believe the virus had emerged from the wild.
And President Joe Biden has prompted the intelligence community to rethink the issue of its origins.
Meanwhile, Trump has rebuilt his political life, first from his base in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, and last month from his golf club in New Jersey.
He has been spotted slipping in and out of New York’s Trump Tower, popping up on his favorite right-wing TV news shows.
He has repeatedly floated the idea of running for president in 2024, though aides say no decision is likely until after the midterms next year, when he can assess political currents.
Here you can see Trump leaving Trump Tower, where he is seen about once a week as he embarks on the next phase of his political career. Last month, he moved his base of operations from his winter home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, to his golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey.
On Saturday, he will appear in Greenville, NC, where he is expected to reiterate his claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him, Dr. Anthony Fauci, his coronavirus adviser who is under intense pressure over the origins of the pandemic, is attacking, demanding that China pay reparations for unleashing COVID-19.
He will also contrast the way he imposed sanctions on the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, amid fears it would increase Russia’s energy grip on Europe, with the Biden administration’s decision to suspend plans to end a pipeline to transport crude oil from Canada to the US.
“I killed the Russian pipeline, but Joe Biden killed the Keystone pipeline,” he will say.
The appearance is the first of several planned.
Next weekend, he will appear via jumbotron at an event hosted by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has emerged as one of the most vocal advocates for the toppling of last year’s election.
Trump has also announced plans for outdoor rallies in the Ohio and Florida battlefields.
And aides say they’re planning an event around the July 4 holiday weekend — when they’ve also teased more details about the former president’s plans to return to social media.
