Despite the best efforts of House Democrats to destroy him, former President Donald Trump found reason to celebrate during a call with Turning Point USA activists on Friday in which he promised a “barn burner” of a speech on Saturday night.
Speaking to just over two-dozen TPUSA college chapter presidents and vice presidents — many of whom come from crucial swing states such as Pennsylvania and Michigan — Trump touted the impressive growth of the GOP, Fox News reports.
“We’re growing like you’ve never seen,” he said.
“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.”
“If you look at the African-American population that’s coming to us, and we’re becoming the party of the worker and the party of just about everybody, frankly,” he continued.

Chapter leaders of TPUSA have descended on Tampa, Fla., for the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit, an event aimed at growing a conservative youth movement and helping conservative students to combat alleged liberal bias in schools and universities.
Trump covered all the usual topics in the call — Biden’s shameful withdrawal from Afghanistan, the crisis at the border, skyrocketing inflation, etc. — and predicted that the GOP will enjoy “tremendous” midterm results and “a great 2024.”
He then teased the speech he will be giving to the convention on Saturday night.
“I hope you’re all there because we’re going to give you a barn burner,” he promised. “We’re going to give you a lot of different things that a lot of people won’t talk about.”
The TPUSA speech comes on the heels of his Friday address in Arizona, in which the former president backed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake while, at a separate rally, former Vice President turned Trump nemesis Mike Pence was endorsing Lake’s primary opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson.
Meanwhile, protestors have begun gathering in a park near the Tampa Convention Center ahead of Trump’s address to Summit attendees.
“I want us to be that f–king loud when we get there,” an activist organizer shouted to an already pumped-up crowd. “I want to make sure they are interrupted. I want them to be afraid of us, ’cause you should be afraid of us.”
“And if you’re not afraid of us,” she raged, “we’ve got all summer to prove it to you.”

Online, people are watching the unfolding events with bated breath.
“Dissent,” commented one user on Twitter. “An American tradition.”
“Just like the tradition of making yourself look like an old fool with a vile protest sign that uses 2nd grade schoolyard language, or seeing your party implode with a MASSIVE election loss,” he continued. “Traditions. Gotta love ’em.”
