Former President Donald Trump launched the first rally of his 2024 presidential campaign by playing the song “Justice For All,” featuring the “J6 Prison Choir’s” performance of the U.S. National Anthem and Trump’s recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.
The song began after Trump took the stage in Waco, Texas, to chants of “U.S.A!” as supporters held signs reading “Witch Hunt” and “Trump 2024.”

The choir consists of imprisoned protesters from Jan. 6, 2021. They reportedly sing the Star-Spangled Banner every night. One of their sessions was recorded by phone and mixed with Trump’s recital of the Pledge of Allegiance, creating “Justice For All.” The song reached number one on Billboard’s digital song sales chart.
It reached number one on the Apple iTunes chart before being temporarily removed from the platform. A representative for the music platform said the removal was due to a “miscommunication” between the company’s communication department and music operations team.
“The issue has been escalated and should be back up on our platform soon,” the representative added.
Kash Patel, a former Trump administration official, had a crucial role in developing the song.
“We basically broke the music industry is what we did here, because we put America First values back front and center,” Patel told Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday earlier this month. “And we said we’re going to use free speech platforms like Truth Social and Rumble, and then we’re going to debut a song that speaks to what’s on so many Americans’ minds.”
At his rally, Trump said that when the 2024 presidential election is over, he will become the next president of the U.S., saying one of his first acts will be to remove the “thugs and criminals” from the justice system.
“When this election is over, I will be the president of the United States,” Trump said at an airport tarmac in Waco, Texas. “You will be vindicated and proud, and the thugs and criminals who are corrupting our justice system will be defeated, discredited and totally disgraced.”

Trump framed his 2024 campaign as the “final battle” in fighting a “corrupt” system. “And 2024 is the final battle, it’s going to be a big one,” he said. “You put me back in the White House, their reign will be over and America will be a free nation once again.”

According to a RealClear Politics poll, Trump will likely become the 2024 GOP presidential nominee, likely setting a re-match between himself and President Joe Biden.
