Trump Believes Virginia 'Ready to Go Republican'

By    |   Monday, 04 March 2024 10:12 PM EST

Former President Donald Trump wants to "go all in" on Virginia for the 2024 election.

In an interview with WMAL's "The Vince Coglianese Show," Trump said that Virginia can go red for the first time in two decades since inhabitants of the state "have become so unhappy," according to the Daily Caller.

Coglianese asked Trump, "this weekend you were in Richmond, [Virginia]. They had a great rally out in Richmond, and while you were there you were talking about how you were going to make a big play for Virginia this year. This week is Super Tuesday — what do you think it is going to take for you to win big in Virginia?"

"Well, I think what you would do today is a lot different than what would have happened two or three or four years ago. I think I could've won Virginia previously, but now if you look at it, people are miserable there. They are unhappy. The migrants are pouring into your cities and your areas and every place all over Virginia. It's a much different place than it was," the former president answered.

"I think I can say this for a lot of cities and states. It is a much different country than it was two or three years ago with what's taken place on immigration, on the border, with inflation having decimated the middle class and a lot of other people beyond the middle class," Trump added. "We're in a much different position than we were. I think Virginia — we have that down now as a place we are really going to go after. And I know the polls are very close to being even. And we are, we are going to make a very heavy play for Virginia."

The last time a Republican won Virginia in a presidential election was in 2004.

"I have a lot of different friends in Virginia, a lot of different properties in Virginia. We have a lot of things going on in Virginia. It's an incredible state. And I think it is ready to go Republican. They cannot stand the incompetence of watching what they're doing right now and putting up with it," Trump said.
