WASHINGTON — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, one of Donald Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, said Friday she will travel to New York next week to protest the former president’s impeachment and urged other supporters to join. to her.

I’m leaving for New York on Tuesday. We MUST protest against the unconstitutional WITCH HUNT!” Green tweeted to his 663,000 followers.

Tuesday’s protests would come the same day that Trump’s lawyers said the former president and leading 2024 Republican presidential candidate is expected to be arraigned in court. A Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump on Thursday with allegedly making hush money payments to women who claimed to have had relationships with him.

Greene’s call for protests is a setback for the conservative firebrand and Trump loyalist, who less than two weeks ago rejected Trump’s call for his supporters to «protest, take back our nation!»

she took to Twitter then saying that Trump supporters «do not need to protest the Communist Democrats’ planning to arrest Pres Trump and our government’s use of political weapons and election interference.»

A day later, Greene told reporters that she had no plans to travel to New York to protest and urged others to join her at a Trump campaign rally in Waco, Texas, that week.

«I’m not going to New York. I’m going to go to Waco, Texas and join a group of people who support President Trump,» Greene said in Orlando.

“Because Save America rallies are like one big love fest. We are all saying how much we love America and President Trump. I don’t need to protest.

It’s unclear why she changed her position on protesting in New York City, though she regularly speaks with Trump on the phone and is a regular visitor to Mar-a-Lago. A spokesman for Greene did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

So far, no other Republican lawmaker has said he plans to join Greene in protesting in New York.
