During Trump’s rally in Ohio, an interesting occurred towards the end of Trump’s speech.
While the song “Where We Go One, We Go All” played hundreds of Trump supporters started pointing up to the sky.
There have been several takes on this and they are:
The supporters were pointing to God.
Another take was that they referenced that we need to put America first.
Another interpretation was that these people were Qanon supporters and their raising one finger up because WWG1WGA was playing.
Watch the moment it occurred here:
Not even Trump forums know why his followers held up one finger at his rally tonight.
Some people think it's for Where We Go 1 We Go All — the QAnon catchphrase.
Others think it's to symbolize America First.
Whatever it is, it's deeply weird and I haven't seen it before. pic.twitter.com/TpiHsghtr5

Business Insider had more details to add:
Former President Donald Trump on Saturday spoke at a rally for Ohio Senate candidate JD Vance while a QAnon song played dramatically in the background, and his supporters raised their fingers in an unusual salute.
In recent weeks, Trump has amplified QAnon talking points on his social media, but Saturday night’s spectacle in Youngstown, Ohio, was perhaps the clearest sign yet that he’s now openly embracing the baseless conspiracy theory.
As Trump complained about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, “Fake News,” and Hunter Biden’s laptop at the Ohio rally, a cinematic soundtrack played throughout.
According to Media Matters, the US-based media watchdog, the soundtrack appears to be a song previously released online with the title “Wwg1wga” — the QAnon slogan.
QAnon figures noticed the song choice, perceiving it as a nod to the movement by the former president. “QAnon figures are claiming the use of the song brings some kind of legitimacy for them,” said Alex Kaplan, a senior researcher for Media Matters, in a tweet on Saturday.
So, it looks like Trump supporters have taken to pointing up their index fingers as a group signal pic.twitter.com/uxTL5dgLS2
