INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News exclusively that he believes the movement supporting his 2024 comeback campaign is “even stronger” than the one that backed him in 2016.

“I think, in terms of movement—you can use that word if you want—but I think it’s even stronger than it was in 2016,” Trump said in an interview backstage after his speech to the annual National Rifle Association (NRA) gathering here earlier this month. “People saw what we can do.”

Indiana, where Breitbart News interviewed Trump, is a particularly historic place for Trump’s political rise. It is here where Trump finalized his 2016 insurgent takeover of the GOP, becoming the presumptive presidential nominee in 2016 after he vanquished Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and then-Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the final primary in which they competed before suspending their campaigns.

That May 3, 2016, primary shocked the world, as Cruz’s and Kasich’s decisions to drop out after losing it to Trump meant that the political outsider and businessman had solidified his grip on the GOP and would a few months later formally win the GOP nomination on the floor of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in the summer of 2016. Trump also selected the then-governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, as his running mate in 2016. While Trump and Pence have fallen out since the 2020 election, the two worked well together during Trump’s four years in the White House—a relationship that began here in Indiana in 2016.
