Donald Trump will host a rally in Alabama later this month as he continues to fuel rumors that he’ll run for president again in 2024.

Trump, who left the White House in January after being defeated last year’s election by Joe Biden, will speak to supporters at a campaign-style rally in Cullman, on August 21.

His political organization ‘Save America’ are in charge of organizing the meet, which will take place on the same day as the state Republican Party’s holds its summer meeting, also in Cullman.

The 45th president won Alabama by more than 25% in both the 2016 and 2020 elections and will look to gauge support at the end of the month.

The rally will include the first speech Trump has made in the state of Alabama since September 2017.

It also comes just a few weeks after Trump held two similar rallies in Ohio and Florida.

In June, Trump held a rally in Wellington, Ohio, in which he slammed ‘woke generals’ in American society. He then held a second rally in Sarasota, Florida, as he continues to stoke speculation about a possible run to regain the White House in three years time.

‘The Alabama Republican Party is thrilled that president Trump is coming to Alabama and holding a rally in conjunction with our annual summer meeting’, said state Republican chairman John Wahl in a press release, reports AL.com.

‘We all know that there is a special relationship between president Trump and the people of Alabama, and I am incredibly excited to be part of bringing him back to our state.

‘It has been an absolute pleasure working with the Trump team since the end of February to make this visit possible. August 21st is going to be an exciting and memorable night for the state of Alabama.’

Since leaving the White House eight months ago Trump, 75, has repeatedly teased the possibility that he will launch another run for president at the next election.

In April he said he was ‘beyond seriously’ thinking about running for US president again at some point in the future.

In the interview with Fox News, Trump also claimed that he’s more popular now among Americans than he was on the day of the US election in November last year.

Trump added that the reason for his apparent rise in popularity is because of ‘how bad things are’ – as he attacked Joe Biden for his handling for the US-Mexico border crisis which has seen a record number of migrants crossing the border into America.
