Donald Trump called Philadelphia “one of the most egregious places” in the world during a rally in the city.

The former president and presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee held a rally at Temple University's Liacouras Center in the Pennsylvania city on June 22 as part of his election campaign.

Pennsylvania, a swing state, elected Joe Biden in 2020 by about 80,000 votes after electing Trump in 2016 and breaking his 24-year blue streak.

Only twice between 1932 and 1988 did a presidential candidate win the White House without also winning Pennsylvania, and no Democrat has been elected president without the state since 1948.

During his 85-minute speech, Trump repeated unproven allegations about voter fraud in the state in 2020 and said the fraud had been “egregious” in Philadelphia.

“We can’t let this happen again,” Trump said. “And Philadelphia was one of the most egregious places in the world – what happened in the city, what happened in this city. So now they used COVID to cheat, they used a lot things to cheat, but we're not going to let it happen again.”

Biden's election campaign released a clip of Trump making the comments on social media.

In response to a request for comment, Steven Cheung, Trump's communications director, told Newsweek: “Another cheap faux pas from the Biden campaign. He was speaking clearly about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Elsewhere in the speech, Trump said he loved the city and went to school there.

Trump's comments about Philadelphia follow reports that he called a Wisconsin city “horrible” during a closed-door meeting with Republican lawmakers at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.

The meeting was a precursor to the Republican National Convention, to be held in Milwaukee July 15-18, where Trump is expected to be chosen as the party's nominee. According to Jake Sherman, founder of the online political news daily Punchbowl News, the Republican attacked the convention venue, saying, “Milwaukee, where we have our convention, is a horrible city.”

Cheung denied the report on X, formerly Twitter. He wrote: “Wrong. Total bull****. He never said that as it has been falsely characterized. He was talking about how terrible crime and voter fraud is.”

Still, experts said the reports could alienate voters, which could be detrimental as polls ahead of the presidential election remain close.

On June 27, Biden and Trump are scheduled to face off in Atlanta for the first of two debates scheduled before the November 5 general election.
