Speaking on Thursday night in the Bronx’s Crotona Park, an area that last voted for a Republican presidential candidate in the 1980s, Trump addressed how Biden’s policies have affected the predominantly black and Hispanic borough and vowed to bring the city back to greatness.

Trump declared that he was going to "turn New York City around, and we are going to turn it around very, very quickly." The crowd went wild.

"We’re going to bring back safety to our streets. We’re going to bring success back to our schools. We’re going to bring prosperity back to every neighborhood in every borough of the greatest city in our land. We’re going to reduce taxes. We’re going to bring businesses and big taxpayers back to New York, gotta bring them back. And we’re going to make New York bigger, better, and more beautiful than ever before, and that includes right here in the Bronx."

Trump said that he has always believed "this city is a monumental testament to the power of the American spirit and the American dream," later adding, however, that "this is now a city in decline."

"Throughout my life, I’ve seen New York through good times and bad, through boom times and crime waves, through market crashes and terrorist attacks. But I’ve never seen it quite like this."

"We have filthy encampments of drugged-out homeless people living in our places that we’ve spent so much time with children, where they used to play. We have lunatics killing innocent bystanders by pushing them onto the railroad tracks for sport," he said, also noting how the subway system is "squalid and unsafe," infrastructure is "crumbling," and "mobs of migrants" are "fighting our police officers."

"But we are not going to let this continue. We are not going to abandon our hope and our pride. This city has given us so much and now it is time that we are going to give it back," he said.

Trump noted that there was a "record low poverty rate for black Americans and Hispanic Americans" under his administration, comparing that to statistics under Biden’s term during which "African Americans are getting slaughtered. Hispanic Americans are getting slaughtered. And these millions and millions of people that are coming into our country, the biggest impact and the biggest negative impact is against our black population and our Hispanic population who are losing, losing their housing, losing everything they can lose."

"They’re the ones that are affected by what’s happening."

The crowd, many of which had been in the area awaiting Trump’s speech for hours, frequently broke out into chants of "USA" and "We Love Trump."

After one instance of the crowd breaking out into supportive chants, Trump said, "who said we’re not going to win New York? We’re going to win New York."

Trump noted that the lines to get into the event went on "for miles," telling the crowd that he loves them.

"It’s really all about the people and in this case, the people of New York City, New York State. We’re going to make you very, very happy. And Biden can’t do that, he doesn’t know he’s alive."

Trump brought up Ruben Diaz Sr. to the podium, a former Democrat member of the New York City Council, who endorsed Trump for president, as well as Congressman Byron Donalds.

Trump also brought up rapper Sheff G, who he joking told that he loved his grill and wanted to know where he got it.
