( – On Thursday, former President Donald Trump stepped outside the political box when he held a rally in one of New York City’s deep-blue areas, not known for showing kindness to Republicans.

Trump’s Crotona Park, Bronx, rally garnered a crowd of 25,000, far more than the 3,500 expected to attend.

The number, a rough estimate, seemingly includes the hoards lined up outside the event, who waited for hours for the opportunity to get into the event even after it began.

Shortly after taking the stage, Trump declared he would be turning New York City around “very, very quickly,” vowing to bring back safety and better schools to the city.

Trump praised the rich history of the Big Apple but lamented how the city was in decline while describing subway violence and rampant homelessness.

The former President then turned his attention to President Joe Biden, suggesting he wasn’t “getting the job done” for those in the Bronx and describing the 81-year-old President as “grossly incompetent.”

He added that if the city couldn’t be saved by a New Yorker, no one could, which elicited enormous cheers.

Trump then promised that if reelected in November, he’d work with New York’s Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul and the city’s Democratic Mayor Eric Adams to fix the state and city, listing tackling the subway system, park cleanliness, and the scourge of mentally ill and homeless on the street.

Trump again diverted to discussing the economy under Biden, criticizing energy prices and inflation, highlighting how it affected Hispanic and Black families most.

Toward the end of his speech, Trump recited “The Snake” by Al Wilson, which he often uses to reference uncontrolled illegal immigration in the U.S.
