WEST CHESTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Polls have Donald Trump easily winning the Pennsylvania primary on Tuesday, but the billionaire took no chances making a push for votes at West Chester University on Monday.
An estimated 4,000 people packed into Hollinger Field House to hear Trump make one of his final pushes for votes in Pennsylvania.
In about an hour-long rally filled with personal attacks against other candidates, Trump told supporters he wants to bring jobs back to Pennsylvania. During his speech, Trump told those in attendance that Pennsylvania has lost 35 percent of its manufacturing jobs since 2001.
The presidential candidate also teed off on the newly formed alliance between Republican challengers Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
Trump stressed to the energetic crowd that he wants to strengthen the military, and he also complained about the election process.
“We’re going to take our country back and make it great for everybody,” Trump said. “We’re going to make it great for everybody.”
Sean Shields, a Harrisburg native and West Chester student, was in attendance for the rally. He told ABC27 News he liked what he heard from Trump.
“Donald Trump pumps up the crowd and he pumped up me today,” he said.
Trump’s rally was interrupted a few times by protestors. At one a point, a protestor shouted, “Stop attacks and talk about the issues” and Trump responded, “Go home to mommy.”
Trump also planned Monday night rally in Wilkes-Barre.
