Donald Trump Speaks At Oklahoma State Fair

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump spoke to a throng of his followers at the Oklahoma State Fair, Friday evening.

The current front runner for the Republican nomination, Trump opened his speech to chants of “Trump” from a very enthusiastic crowd. And in his usual style, Trump went on the attack, touching on the usual subjects of Mexico, Iran, the Democrats and his GOP rivals.

“Our country doesn’t have victories anymore. We don’t win with anybody,” Trump said.

Trump spoke at length on immigration and again brought up his plan to build a “large” wall on the Mexican border.

“I love Mexico…but we gotta build a wall on the border,” Trump said to loud cheers and applause from the crowd.

He could have said anything and the crowd would have eaten it up, but Trump doubled down on his typical rhetoric and played on what makes him so popular with his supporters; he relentlessly assaulted his opponents and held nothing back, calling them “dumb”, “stupid”, “idiots”, and “morons”.  

“I’m not politically correct,” Trump said proudly. “I don’t want to be politically correct. I don’t have time to be politically correct.”

Trump touted his poll numbers around the country, and used his success in Florida as ammunition to strike at two of his GOP competitors, Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush, who both hail from the state.  

In a more light-hearted part of his appearance, Trump brought up Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame, to say a few words and fie the crowd up.

Opponents of Trump also staged their own anti-Trump rally outside of the state fair park the polarizing candidate. More than 100 police officers were on hand at to help keep the peace.
