Trump addresses supporters at Turning Point USA conference

Former President Donald Trump will address supporters Saturday evening at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida.

Trump’s speech, set to begin around 7p.m. ET, follows a Friday evening rally he held in Arizona to show support for Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.

In a call with top Turning Point USA activists on Friday, Trump touted what he said is a quickly growing GOP, and teased a “barn burner” speech planned for Saturday night.

“We’re growing like you’ve never seen,” Trump told a group of slightly more than two-dozen TPUSA college chapter presidents and vice presidents, many from swing states like Pennsylvania and Michigan.

“I was watching something – a preview that was so important, it had to do with Hispanics and the Hispanic population,” Trump said. “And they’re literally cascading into the Republican Party. And people have really never thought that was possible. But it’s possible because they’re entrepreneurial, they’re great people.”

Charlie Kirk, founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, speaks during the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida, US, on Friday, July 22, 2022.

Trump’s appearance at the annual event comes after several other prominent Republicans – including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo.; and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis – addressed the crowd of young attendees.

This year’s conference in Tampa marks TPUSA’s eighth Student Action Summit. Prior to the event, TPUSA promised “an amazing celebration of self-expression, self-reliance and self-acceptance.”
