No, this video doesn’t show Trump speaking in Alabama in July 2022

Former President Donald Trump, facing thousands of cheering fans, stands behind a lectern bearing the words, "Save America." 

A video of that scene is being shared on Facebook with a description that suggests it first aired live on social media. 

"LIVE - President Donald J Trump in Cullman, AL - July 13, 2022," the post says.

It was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)

The footage is authentic, but the timestamp isn’t. A simple search for Trump and Cullman, Alabama, reveals that the rally was held a year ago, on Aug. 21, 2021. He talked about President Joe Biden and Afghanistan and recommended that his supporters get a COVID-19 vaccine, a suggestion that was met with boos.

We rate claims that this footage is from 2022 False.
