Presidential candidate, Donald Trump brought his message to a record breaking crowd at the Anderson Civic Center, Monday.
“You’re going to have victories coming out of your ears,” Trump promised before the voices of more than 5000 people broke out into chants of, “Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump!”
It’s a big promise from the man who has sat high atop the polls since entering the presidential race, which is something Trump isn’t afraid to point out.
“Well, I love the polls. Other people don’t talk about the polls. You know why? They’re doing lousy in the polls. Okay,” he said.
He was quick to call out Senator Lindsey Graham, who’s scratching in many national polls and tracking only 5% here at home, according to the latest polls. Trump’s ahead by 18 points.
“Today he was being interviewed and I see Lindsey Graham. I said, ‘What’s he doing? Go back to your people in South Carolina. Represent your people,” chastised Trump.
A few counties over in Greenville, Graham had his own things to say about his political rival.
“I don’t think Donald Trump’s philosophy…I don’t know what he is. I know as a commander-in-chief, he would be the worst possible pick,” said Graham.
The masses at the trump rally didn’t agree. At one point, one woman was just overwhelmed. The crowd cried out, “medic,” and Trump realized she passed out.
“She just fainted. You know what? That means she’s excited. It’s ok. Make sure she’s good. Those are my best fans. The one’s that faint I love the most,” Trump quipped.
Unshaken, Trump moved on to money. He spoke of his desire to shrink the 19 trillion dollar nation debt and his vow not to take money from PACs.
“I’m not selling myself to special interest groups, insurance groups or lobbyists,” he said.
One thing Mr. Trump didn’t talk about were some controversial comments he’s made this week, saying if he were President in 2001, he could have prevented 9/11. They are statements that have angered some of the GOP base and fellow presidential candidate, Jeb Bush. However, people supporter at the rally said they weren’t bothered. They called Trump a “voice of the voter.”
