Donald Trump Says 'We Are Going to Take Back America', Crowd Chant 'USA'

Donald Trump vowed to "take back America" during a fiery speech in Wisconsin on Friday night.

The former President was in the state to support Tim Michels, who he hopes will be the Republican candidate for the Wisconsin Governor election in November.

It has once again put him at odds with his former Vice-President Mike Pence, who is campaigning for Rebecca Kleefisch, Wisconsin's former Lieutenant Governor, to get the Republican ticket.

Trump addressed a packed rally in Waukesha, on the western outskirts of Milwaukee.

To loud cheers he said: "This is the year we're going to take back the House, we're going to take back the Senate and we're going to take back America.

"And in 2024, most importantly, we are going to take back our magnificent White House, we're going to take it back."

Former President Donald Trump greets supporters during a rally on August 05, 2022 in Waukesha, Wisconsin. During his speech he vowed to "take back America".

As he spoke the gathered crowd started chanting "USA, USA" at a number of points.

The ex-president went on to slam Joe Biden's record on both legal and illegal immigration, promising a crackdown if he returns to the White House.

He commented: "We will shut down Biden's border disaster, reinstitute our strong remain in Mexico policy, strengthen the patriots of ICE and border control.

"We will again end catch and release, one of the dumbest programs ever, we will end chain migration, we will end the visa lottery and we will clamp down on illegal immigration just like we did less than two years ago."

The former president added: "We will stop the crimewave in Democrat run cities, we will give our police the power they need and the respect they deserve and we will not take immunity protection away from our police.

"We will restore law and order in America, we will hold China accountable for unleashing the virus upon the world, we will protect innocent life, we will defend our constitution, we will defend our totally under siege second amendment."

If Michels secures the Republican nomination he will go on to face Tony Evers, Wisconsin's incumbent Democratic Governor, in November's election.

The rally came one day after former Republican Vice-President Dick Cheney branded Trump a "coward", and said there has never been "a greater threat to our republic" than the New York businessman.

In a one-minute clip posted in support of his daughter, Liz Cheney, he criticized Trump for refusing to accept the 2020 election result.

In the video he said: "In our nation's 246-year history there has never been an individual who was a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump.

"He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power, after the voters had rejected him. He's a coward, a real man wouldn't lie to his supporters. He lost his election, and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it."

Liz Cheney is currently vice-chair of the House January 6 Committee, which is investigating the attack on Capital Hill on January 6 2021 and the role played by the then-president.

Trump ally Steve Bannonhit back at Dick Cheney, branding him a "war criminal" on social media site Gettr.

Liz Cheney is locked in a fierce Wyoming primary battle with Harriet Hageman, her Trump backed rival Republican.
