A day after Donald Trump’s second visit to the Gulf Coast attracted more than 13,000 fans to the coliseum in Biloxi, people are still talking about what the candidate did and didn’t say during his roughly hour-long speech.
He rallied up the crowd with talk of scrapping common core, jabs at Jeb Bush, and undoing President Obama’s proposed executive action for stricter gun laws.
“He can’t do that! He’s going to sign another executive order having to do with the Second Amendment, having to do with guns. I will veto. I will unsign that so fast,” Trump vowed as the coliseum erupted in applause.
While Trump targeted the Iran Nuclear deal, calling it “one of the worst deals I’ve ever seen negotiated at any level,” the entity that received the brunt of Trump’s heat was the media.
Trump told his supporters that the media refuses to show the large turn-out at his rallies.
“They’re really dishonest people,” Trump said pointing at the line of network and local cameras. “Look at that guy in the middle! Turn it! Spin the camera,” he yelled at one of the photographers as Trump fans jeered and yelled, “fire him!”
After several minutes, Trump continued on in his speech after making a joke asking for any protesters in the audience to stand up so the cameras would pan away from the stage, but none were there.
While he touched on his usual topics including illegal immigration and Syrian refugees, one subject he never brought up was a newly-leaked terrorism recruitment video featuring clips from his rallies to lure radical extremists.
The video, which features Al-Shabab, has been a hot topic for the mainstream media in recent days, but, inside the coliseum, no one seemed to care whether or not it was mentioned.
Most of the supporters we talked to said Trump was a hit.
