Donald Trump continues to draw huge crowds, both at his rallies and also when he gives televised speeches.
CBS, NBC, ABC, and MSNBC didn’t air his speech. Instead, these massive numbers came from viewers watching Fox, CNN, Newsmax, and RSBN and are astoundingly high for the rollout of a presidential candidate.
Between Fox News, CNN, Newsmax, and RSBN, at least 12.5 million Americans watched Trump’s announcement live, an ASTOUNDINGLY HIGH NUMBER FOR THE ROLLOUT OF A PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.https://t.co/Ac65rU8bHn

The huge viewing numbers show that there is a tremendous interest in what “45” is saying and massive support for him as well.
Still massive support for the former President… https://t.co/z2GKQccUf9

The networks that carried Trump’s announcement saw massive spikes:
Fox News reported more than 5.16 million viewers during the announcement, with 929,000 of those viewers falling into the key 25-54 age demographic.
CNN sharply rose to 2.43 million viewers, with 656,000 in the key demographic. And Newsmax, which carried the announcement live, surged up to 1.13 million viewers, 195,000 of which were in the key demographic.
Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN), carried the speech across several platforms digitally, announcing that it also had more than 3.8 million viewers for Trump’s speech.
Trump’s speech elicited loud cheers when he said, “America’s comeback starts right now.” He went on to detail that when he left office three years ago, America was thriving but is now suffering under the weight of Biden’s bad decisions.
Trump is not a Washington insider, a fact that has drawn the confidence of his base. In his speech he detailed that the MAGA movement is not about politics but rather about the love of the country. He said,
“But just as I promised in 2016, I am your voice. I am your voice. The Washington establishment wants to silence us, but we will not let them do that. What we have built together over the past six years is the greatest movement in history because it is not about politics. It’s about our love for this great country, America, and we’re not going to let it fail.”
He continued giving Americans hope, “I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We have not reached that pinnacle, believe it or not…In fact, we can go very far. We’re going to have to go far first. We have to get out of this ditch. And once we’re out, you’ll see things that nobody imagined for any country. It’s called the United States of America. And it’s an incredible place.”
Perhaps what angers Democrats and the Mainstream Media is that the endless insults and contempt they aim at Trump fuels his popularity. Americans want a fighter, someone they believe will prioritize their freedom and best interests. Finally, they have found a movement that represents them with Making America Great Again and a champion in Donald Trump.
They will show up for him, whether that means attending an in-person rally or watching his televised speeches.
