The Raleigh News & Observer reports:
North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson will join former President Donald Trump at his rally in Johnston County this weekend. Robinson, who was elected as lieutenant governor in 2020, is among three new guest speakers who were announced on Wednesday, all Republican elected officials.
Previously announced speakers include U.S. Reps. Madison Cawthorn of the 11th district and Ted Budd, who represents the 13th district and is running for the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Richard Burr.
In a video posted Wednesday on Rumble, a video sharing platform popular among conservatives, Trump promoted his upcoming return visit to Selma and reiterated his support for Budd, who he said was a “great conservative.”

North Carolina’s Lt. Governor, Mark Robinson, just angrily referred to the LGBTQ community as “filth.”
Then he says, “Yes, I called it filth.”
There’s no debate here. This is open discrimination. It is completely unacceptable.
