Trump Stuns With Sudden Announcement Of Where He's Moving

This past weekend in Dallas, at the National Rifle Association’s National Convention, former President Donald Trump captivated a Texas audience with a significant announcement about his future plans. The NRA’s prior endorsement was a notable event in Trump’s ongoing relationship with gun owners and the Southern states.

Trump declared, “I want to move to Texas and I want to retire in Texas… a lot of people are moving to Texas,” according to The Daily Mail. With 18 visits to Texas during his presidency and another 13 post-presidency, Trump’s fondness for the state is well-documented.

It remains unclear if Trump’s comments were a concrete commitment or a gesture of solidarity with his Southern supporters, but they align with his previous decision to move from New York to Florida while in office.

Trump’s relocation to Mar-a-Lago in Florida was influenced by the state’s favorable climate and tax benefits, a strategic move he might be considering for Texas as well.

At the convention, Trump, alongside Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX), addressed thousands of delegates, urging them to support him in the 2024 presidential election to safeguard their Second Amendment rights. The excitement in the hall was evident as Trump and Abbott spoke to a crowd of NRA members, many donning Trump’s iconic red caps and attire featuring his image.

According to The Texas Tribune, Trump said, “The NRA has stood with me from the very beginning, and with your vote, I will stand strong for your rights and liberties. I heard it a few weeks ago that if gun owners voted, we would swamp them at levels that nobody’s ever seen before. I think you’re a rebellious bunch, but let’s be rebellious and vote this time.”

During the event, the NRA officially endorsed Trump, the leading candidate for the 2024 presidential race. Trump’s campaign also launched the “Gun Owners for Trump” coalition, a strategic effort to mobilize gun rights advocates for the upcoming election.

Trump expressed his admiration for Governor Abbott, who initiated the transfer of migrants from the Texas-Mexico border to major cities such as New York, Chicago, and Denver. Abbott gained national attention and was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people.

Trump praised Abbott, saying, “We’re also grateful to be joined by a very special man. He’s a hot politician, very hot. You’re a hot politician, Greg. You know why he’s hot… because he’s doing a good job.”

Trump also warned the pro-Second Amendment audience that Joe Biden would attempt to confiscate their firearms if re-elected. He stated, “They want to take away your rights. I know that better than anybody. They want to take away my rights better than anybody…worse than Alphonse Capone. Al Capone was indicted twice.”

Governor Abbott echoed this sentiment, saying, “Now more than ever, we must fight to protect our Second Amendment rights. According to the NRA, Texas has passed more significant Second Amendment protections than any other state.”
