VALDOSTA, Ga. - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke to about 7,500 supporters inside the arena at Valdosta State University Monday.
“I am not a politician, all these guys all they do is talk, its all talk no action,” said Donald Trump. “They debate, they talk, nothing gets done.”
NASCAR’s CEO and some drivers endorsed Trump at the rally. Trump spoke to supporters for about 50 minutes, touching upon his usual issues like trade, securing the boarder, the right to bear arms and education, adding that if he becomes president he will get rid of Common Core.
“I always thought we needed a business man to run the country,” said Tracey Wyatt who attended the rally. “We need someone to look at the boarders, we need someone to quit moving our production to China and to Mexico,” said Wyatt.
Trump’s speech was interrupted by a protestor who Trump told to leave and was escorted out by security. Trump also pointed out the media and called them dishonest and terrible.
Supporters said they like Trump’s transparency.
“I see the difference in him that I don’t see in politicians,” said Ronald Causby.
The gloves have definitely come off on the campaign trail leading up to Super Tuesday. Senator Marco Rubio attacked Trump during his last rallies, mocking Trump’s physical characteristics and his policy positions. Surprisingly all Trump had to say about the Florida senator Monday was “Like this little Marco Rubio, this guy. I call him lightweight. I call him lightweight Marco.”
During the rally, Trump bragged about his numbers. Despite some calling him a bully, insulting and arrogant, Trump is still in the lead to win Georgia on Super Tuesday.
“Sometimes he is a little too much,” said supporter Thomas Walthall. “He says some stuff might not need to be said, but I would rather prefer that over someone that would never stand up over anything,” said Walthall.
According to Trump’s campaign website, he has two rallies scheduled for Super Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio and the other in Louisville, Kentucky. He is expected to be in South Florida to await Super Tuesday results.
