Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Black people seen holding 'Blacks for Trump' placard at Donald Trump's Ohio rally yesterday.

Donald Trump boasted about his 'sold out' Ohio rally on Saturday hours before taking the stage, and said most Republicans 'would lose' their races if not for his endorsement.

Trump is speaking at the 7,000-seat Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio at 7pm - but the 'massive crowd' he bragged about on his Truth Social app only fills about two-thirds of the stadium.

It's worth noting that the rally is going on at the same time as a major college football game between Ohio State University and the University of Toledo. 

The former president also said he's in Ohio because he was asked to campaign there by Republican Senate candidate JD Vance, who is locked in a tight race against Democratic House Rep. Tim Ryan.

He's facing Democratic House Rep. Tim Ryan in November to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Rob Portman.

As an added jab at the left-wing populist, Saturday's rally is in Ryan's current Congressional district.

Vance and Ryan are currently locked in a close race. A Friday poll from Emerson College Polling/The Hill had the 'Hillbilly Elegy' author leading Ryan by four percent.

But he's wildly popular among Trump supporters, judging by the enthusiastic cheers when he took the stage on Saturday. 

Trump's pick for Ohio's 7th Congressional District is his former White House aide Max Miller, whose wedding the ex-president officiated at his Bedminster golf course in August.

He's also supporting conservative commentator and former Miss Ohio Madison Gesiotto Gilbert in the 13th Congressional District.

Also at Saturday night's rally is Air Force veteran J.R. Majewski, who is vying to unseat vulnerable Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur in the 9th district. Majewski was present on the US Capitol grounds when a mob of Trump supporters overwhelmed law enforcement and stormed the building.

Notably absent is Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, whom Trump only recently endorsed despite the Republican leader disputing Trump's claim that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

Last year DeWine also defended Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez for his vote to impeach Trump over the Capitol riot. 'He made that call. That was his decision. I think he's been a good member of Congress. He should not resign,' DeWine said.

DeWine told the Youngstown Vindicator on Friday that he was missing the rally to watch his granddaughters participate in an evening cross country race event going on at the same time.
