The visit to the Kentucky Derby is not too surprising considering almost every US president has made a special visit to the famous horse races but many speculate Trump is planning to start his plan to dethrone U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell’s reign in the Senate.
Mitch McConnell does not want President Trump to win re-election. Get rid of Mitch! #VoteTrump2024

Trump’s appearance in McConnell’s backyard is a major sign that Trump is in the process of getting McConeel out of office.
The New York Post had more details to share:
President Donald Trump hosted a whopping $75,000-per-head fundraiser at the Kentucky Derby before he made a public appearance to see 80-to-1 longshot horse Rich Strike’s historic win on Saturday.
Trump attended the first leg of the Triple Crown Saturday to host a fundraiser for Trump-supporting Super PAC “MAGA, Again!” in the home state of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — whose relationship with the ex-president has grown rocky.
McConnell refused to support Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
The 45th president was greeted with chants of “USA” as he appeared on a massive big-screen TV at Churchill Downs about 20 minutes before the 148th Kentucky Derby kicked off, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
