The Alabama Republican Party announced Monday that former President Donald Trump is coming to Alabama. The former president and the Alabama Republican Party announced that he will be holding a Save America Rally in conjunction with the Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee Summer Meeting.
Both events will take place on Aug. 21, 2021, in Cullman, Alabama.
The State Republican Executive Committee meeting will take place in the morning at the Brick Haven Event Venue in Cullman. The Save America rally will then be held later that day at the York Family Farms in Cullman about 3 miles away.
Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl said that the party is “thrilled” to be hosting President Trump.
“The Alabama Republican Party is thrilled that President Trump is coming to Alabama and holding a rally in conjunction with our annual Summer Meeting,” Wahl said. “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.”
Alabama Republican Executive Committee member and former State Rep. Perry O. Hooper Jr., R-Montgomery, said: “The Greatest and most Effective President in U.S. history, Donald J. Trump is coming to Cullman, Alabama for a MAGA rally.”
The rally will take place in Alabama’s Fourth Congressional District — the district that gave Trump his highest election result percentage of any other district in America for both the 2016 and 2020 elections.
“President Trump has a special relationship with Alabama,” said State Auditor Jim Zeigler. “This is where the Trump rallies started. I was there in August 2015 at the very first Trump stadium rally in Mobile, Alabama. I was blessed to be on the Trump platform.”
The doors will open at 2 p.m. for a “45 Fest” with live music, food and beverage concessions, along with special guest speakers. At 5 p.m. the pre-program speakers will deliver their remarks. At 7 p.m. Trump will deliver his remarks. Promoters promise that the event will be a celebration of “freedom, faith and America.” Tickets are free and can be obtained from the Alabama Republican Party.
