Why is Trump starting his campaign in Waco? 

Waco, a city in Texas, has been known as a conservative stronghold with a significant amount of support for former President Donald Trump. During the 2020 election, Trump won McLennan County, where Waco is located, with 56% of the vote. This support for Trump in Waco can be attributed to several factors, including the city’s religious and cultural values, as well as its economic and social conditions.

Religion plays a significant role in Waco, which is located in the “Bible Belt” of the United States. Many residents of Waco identify as evangelical Christians and prioritize issues such as pro-life policies and religious liberty. Trump’s stance on these issues, as well as his support for conservative judges and his opposition to abortion, resonated with many voters in Waco who prioritize these values.
