2022 – FACT CHECK: Did Donald Trump Speak in Cullman, Alabama in July 2022? – Magazine, Health

A video shared on Facebook is said to show a speech former President Donald Trump recently gave in Alabama.

Verdict: Misleading

The video shows a Trump rally in Alabama in 2021, not 2022.

Fact check:

Trump, who lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, has been making speeches across the US to paying attendees for the past few months, according to The Washington Post. The former president is expected to announce by the end of the year whether he will run for president in 2024, the New York Post reported.

A widely circulated Facebook video claims to show a recent speech by Trump in Cullman, Alabama. “LIVE – President Donald J. Trump in Cullman, AL – July 13, 2022,” reads the caption for the 90-minute video.

The caption is misleading. The footage shows a speech Trump delivered in August 2021, not July 2022, in Cullman, Alabama. During the 2021 speech, he spoke about the withdrawal from Afghanistan, border security and the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Cullman Times. C-SPAN footage of the 2021 Rally matches the lengthy video shared on Facebook.

The Alabama Republican Party said 50,000 people attended the rally, according to the WSFA. There is no credible news to suggest that the former President recently visited Cullman.

While the Trump rally featured in the video isn’t new, Trump did host a rally in Anchorage, Alaska, on July 9, according to Alaska Public Media. (RELATED: Is Donald Trump Not Refunding Tickets for His Postponed Rally in Greensboro, North Carolina?)
