( – Former President Donald Trump, currently in New York for his so-called “hush money” trial, declared that he is “going to give it a shot” as he has expressed optimism about his prospects of winning the traditionally Democrat state in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

Speaking amid court sessions, he hinted at planning a campaign rally at Madison Square Garden.

“We’re going to run very hard in New York. We have a good chance of winning New York, in my opinion. We’re going to give it a shot. We’re very close in New York, I understand. We’re leading in the country by a lot. As you saw yesterday, we’re up by a lot in every swing state, so I think we’re going to do very well,” Trump said, cited by The Daily Wire.

He then criticized his political opponent, suggesting the current administration’s performance might influence the election outcome favorably for him.

“Normally, a Democrat would win New York. Biden is the worst president in history and we have some very bad people here, but we have the greatest people and they’re right behind me,” he declared.

Trump also mentioned his intention to organize a rally to honor New York’s essential workers.

“We’ll be honoring the people that make New York work,” he noted.

However, MSG Entertainment said in a statement to NBC New York that it did “not have any events scheduled with the Trump organization at this time.”

Trump’s trial, overseen by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, involves 34 counts of falsifying business records linked to an alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

This legal battle requires Trump’s presence in New York for four days each week, significantly restricting his ability to travel for campaign-related activities, the report points out.

Nevertheless, Trump remained active on the local campaign front last week, engaging with bodega workers in Manhattan to address the city’s rising crime rates. His appearance attracted a considerable crowd, signaling continued support among his base.

Historically, New York has leaned Democratic in presidential elections, with the last Republican victory occurring in 1984 when Ronald Reagan was elected.

Despite recent Republican hopes of a significant upset in the 2022 gubernatorial race, GOP candidate Lee Zeldin was defeated by Governor Kathy Hochul by a considerable margin.

Current polling data from Siena shows President Joe Biden maintaining a substantial lead over Trump in New York.

However, Trump leads Biden in six of the seven key battleground states, as per the latest RealClearPolitics averages.

Nationally, the two are nearly tied, with Trump polling at 44.8% and Biden at 44.5%.
