The Wyoming Republican Party is doing what most organizations can’t right now. Not only are they getting a high-profile figure to keynote their convention but that figure is actually appearing in-person.

Well-known conservative activist Charlie Kirk is heading to Gillette for the Wyoming Republican Convention this weekend and for conservatives, there couldn’t be a better time to host him.

In conservative circles, Kirk is on fire. On Tuesday night, in front of more than 3,000 people, President Trump praised the young activist.

“The radical left demands absolute conformity from every professor, researcher, reporter, journalist, corporation, entertainer, politician, campus speaker, and private citizen,” President Trump said.

“But we have Charlie Kirk and we have our people and our people are stronger.  You are the courageous warriors standing in the way of what they want to do and their goals,” he said.

Speaking on Fox News Wednesday morning, Kirk was enthusiastic about President Trump’s performance in Phoenix.

“Despite what a lot of people wondered, more than 3,000 young people in the middle of the Arizona heat waited up to nine hours to hear the president speak,” Kirk said.

He said the president’s message on “core American values” resonated with the crowd.

“He repeatedly mentioned ’In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’”, Kirk said.  “He reenforced the cultural issues in America.”

“He reenforced a lot of the cultural issues in America. He talked about how we are not going to tolerate history being deleted or being torn down.”

According to a release from the Wyoming Republican Party, Kirk will deliver the keynote address on Saturday at the Cam-Plex in Gillette. The dinner is slated to begin at 6pm.
