Trump kicked off his “thank you” tour in Ohio last night, bringing back the tone of his hundreds of campaign rallies.

In the first few minutes on stage Mr. Trump — who will sit in the Oval Office in just over a month’s time — resurrected his campaign trail grudge match against Governor John Kasich.

He boasted of how much he clobbered his opponent Hillary Clinton in the Ohio: “We won the state by almost ten points,” he said.

And he jabbed at Kasich with this aside: “We didn’t have much help at the top levels, you know that.” Later, he added: “We didn’t have the upper echelon” of political support in Ohio during the election.

With loud “Lock her up” chants erupting from the audience, Mr. Trump also relished in Clinton’s defeat: “We did have a lot of fun fighting Hillary, didn’t we?”

It took nearly 20 minutes into his speech, but the president-elect even brought back an enduring campaign-trail favorite: bashing the press, which he called “extremely dishonest.”

The people in attendance then booed the working members of the press.

Trump could be swinging back into the Port City where it all started, too.

Trump held his first rally in 2015 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

Ladd-Peebles Stadium has a capacity of about 40,000 seats, and roughly half as well as the front center part of the football field was packed with an estimated 20,000 attendees.

Trump has touted the attendance at the Mobile rally all along the campaign trail.

No official date has been announced, so far, but we’ll keep you posted.
