( – On Saturday during a rally in South Carolina, former President Donald Trump managed to draw in a crowd larger than the total population of the town.

The Republican candidate hosted his rally in Pickens, a town with around 3,400 residents. However, during his rally, he ended up speaking to over 50,000 people who had attended the rally at the downtown venue and who had crowded the city streets.

Pickens police chief Randal Beach revealed to The Associated Press on Sunday that authorities were not able to calculate the exact number of people present but that it was approximately 50,000 people. South Carolina is the first presidential primary in the South, which makes it a popular stop for GOP candidates. However, while many candidates have been hosting rallies and events in the state, no one has managed to compete with Trump’s crowds. Trump is also currently leading in the 2024 polls.

The Make America Great Again Inc. PAC in a statement pointed out that no other candidate has been able to draw in similar enthusiasm as the one seen in Pickens, as no one has “delivered for the American people” quite like Trump has. CEO Taylor Budowich revealed in a statement that the recent rulings of the Supreme Court which included the end of affirmative action, blocking the student loan debt relief program, and protecting religious liberty have been further proof of how President Trump had delivered on all the promises he had made to the American people.

Saturday’s event was the first time that Trump managed to return to the large-scale rallies that he was known for during his previous presidential campaigns.
