FACT CHECK. Did Donald Trump Deliver a Speech in Cullman, Alabama On July 20, 2022?

A video shared on Facebook claims that it shows a speech President Donald Trump gave recently 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 giving speeches across the U.S. to paying attendees in recent months, according to The Washington Post. The former president is expected to announce whether he will run for president in 2024 by the end of the year, the New York Post reported.

A Facebook video that has been shared widely claims to be a Trump speech in Cullman. “LIVE – President Donald J Trump in Cullman, AL – July 13, 2022,” reads the 90-minute video’s caption.

The caption is confusing. The footage shows a speech Trump gave in Cullman, Alabama in August 2021, not July 2022. 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 that 50,000 people attended the rally, according to WSFA. There are no credible news reports suggesting the former president recently visited Cullman.

While the Trump rally featured in the video is not recent, Trump did host a rally in Anchorage, Alaska on July 9, according to Alaska Public Media. (RELATED : Does Donald Trump not refund tickets for his postponed Greensboro rally in North Carolina? )
