Trump made sure to reference the Cy-Hawk game in his introduction, but jokingly declined to pick a winner. “I’m going to the football game, can you believe it? I’m going actually from here, to a couple of tailgating parties, and then I’m going over to the football game.” he said. Trump was also met with a spirit-filled response when he said, “Let me ask ya, who’s going to win the game today?”
Among several topics discussed, Trump hit on his plans for the military, education system, and illegal immigration.
He also referenced many other candidates, including Ben Carson and Rick Perry. He keyed in on Carson, and responded to a few things that he had said of Trump.
“Ben hit me on my faith. You don’t hit a person on his faith!” Trump told the audience of about 600 post-parade citizens. “He actually apologized, which is nice. Most people won’t do that, so I respect that. But it’s a tough thing when you get hit on faith.” said the Republican presidential hopeful.
Alongside speaking of Carson, he also spoke of Rick Perry who recently dropped out of the Presidential race. Trump commented “Mr. Perry, he’s gone. Good luck. He was very nasty to me.”
Several major media outlets were in attendance for the event, including CNN, Fox News, and NBC. This was a fantastic community event for Boone and a rather impressive crowd was on hand to experience it.
