Donald Trump pushed to secure red votes in Montgomery County on Friday night with promises to protect Second Amendment rights and appoint conservative Supreme Court justices.
“We have tremendous support but the biggest support is right here,” Trump said.
Preliminary speakers, including Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Texas Federation of Republican Women President Theresa Kosmoski urged the crowd to vote for Trump over Hilary Clinton, who was described as a “crook” multiple times throughout the “Donald J. Trump for President Rally” at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center in The Woodlands.
“Hilary Clinton will eliminate the Second Amendment,” Patrick said in regards to the Supreme Court Justice appointment. “We must defeat Hilary Clinton.”
As the Republican nominee, Trump encouraged the conservative crowd to convince Bernie Sanders supporters to vote for him and portrayed himself as the best candidate for women, Mexican and gay voters. He pointed out posters bearing “Women for Trump,” “Gays for Trump,” and “Mexicans for Trump” during his speech.
“Mexicans for Trump,” Trump said. “I love that. I’m going to bring jobs back and Hilary doesn’t have a clue.”
Trump painted the picture of a safe and prosperous America with a wall for border security, better trade deals, and improved veteran care.
He slammed former President Bill Clinton for signing NAFTA that he said and President Barack Obama for “trying to terrorism into guns” after the Orlando massacre. He exclaimed war should be declared on ISIS.
“It’s not guns,” said Trump, who is endorsed by the NRA. “It’s terrorism.”
Cheers rang out chanting “U.S.A.” after Trump theorized on how events could have played if the Orlando victims had been armed.
“We are going to save the Second Amendment,” he yelled.
Trump reminded the audience of the loss of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the role the next president will play in the historical appoint of the justices.
“If Hilary gets it we are going to be like Venezuela,” Trump said. “You see what’s happening in Venezuela? It’s not going to be pretty. … Defenses are important, but I will pick great, smart, conservative (judges).”
Melissa Pearce of the Woodlands wrapped herself in a “Make America Great Again” flag during the event.
“I thought it was amazing,” said Pearce who waited in line for 2.5 hours. “Very energetic. I’m a new business owner, so what he said about taxes, veterans, the wall, we need it. He gives me hope.”
At least two protesters near the stage thrown out during the preliminary speakers, according to New Caney Real Estate Broker Roy Rogers who has followed Trump on television since the beginning of his campaign.
