Trump will be eager to continue using the conflict between Israel and Hamas as a contrast to his likely general election opponent in 2024, President Joe Biden, when he visits New Hampshire on Saturday.

A campaign adviser for Trump told HEDLINESFOREVER that the topic of Trump’s Claremont address would be bringing peace through strength. The outgoing president will claim that his administration left the United States and the world in a better secure position than that of his successor.

The aide predicted that Trump would make reference to his evidence in the New York civil fraud trial when he returned to New Hampshire. Lawyers for Trump, his adult sons and their company will begin their defence on Monday.

Trump, who rarely keeps to prepared remarks solely, is likely to discuss a wide range of topics, including his legal troubles, Biden, and the war in Israel and Gaza.

Trump’s New Hampshire rally comes only days after he held a counterprogramming event in Hialeah, Florida, just down the road from the site of the third GOP primary debate in Miami, which he skipped. Trump spent more time in his Hialeah speech bashing Biden than any of his Republican competitors.

The former president is still trying to win over voters in the early nominating states, despite the fact that Trump and his campaign may be looking ahead to a potential general election rematch as he has maintained a healthy lead in GOP primary surveys.

As his rivals campaign relentlessly in the first-in-the-nation primary state, Trump’s advisers have told HEDLINESFOREVER that the president will be making multiple trips to New Hampshire this month, including Saturday’s rally.

Trump’s aides have stated that Saturday’s stop in Claremont is not coincidental. As Trump and his team try to cover as much ground as possible before the primary, this visit is part of their focus on the voter-rich southern section of the state, following a stop in the northern New Hampshire last month.

If Trump were to win in Iowa and New Hampshire, his aides say, his primary opponents would be forced to leave out and donors would rally around him.

On the other hand, Trump’s opponents see New Hampshire as a must-win if they want to advance their own campaigns. Several of them, including ex-governors Nikki Haley of South Carolina and Chris Christie of New Jersey, have emphasised the importance of New Hampshire in mounting a credible challenge to Trump.

Haley stated last month when she filed for the Granite State GOP primary, “In New Hampshire, we have a lot of people that say that, yes, they support President Trump, but that doesn’t mean they’re voting for him.”

At a town hall meeting in Manchester last month, Christie explained why he was spending more time in New Hampshire: “because you’re the folks who can make it happen.”

If Donald Trump “can’t be beat,” Christie remarked, “I don’t want to hear that.”

The governor of New Hampshire, Chris Sununu, has been looking for a Trump alternative to endorse for quite some time, and has repeatedly argued that he sees his state as a pathway for another GOP candidate to weaken Trump’s grip on the party. Sununu has been a vocal critic of the former president and has considered running for president himself in 2024.

I’m not anti-Trump. I’m just pro-Republican Party,” Sununu declared Thursday during a town hall with Christie in Merrimack. While Sununu hasn’t publicly backed a candidate, he has campaigned alongside a number of Republican contenders.

He claimed at the Merrimack rally that independents will turn out in “record numbers” to vote against Trump in the New Hampshire primary.
