Donald Trump holds late-night rally in Denver
DENVER — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a late-night campaign rally in Denver on Saturday night. He arrived at the podium at the National Western Complex at about 10:35 p.m.
He took the stage to thunderous applause about an hour after the event was scheduled to start.
This was a day that saw him crisscross the country, starting in Tampa, Fla. He also held rallies in Wilmington, N.C., and Reno, Nev., before arriving in Denver.
In Reno, Secret Service agents rushed him off the stage when a scuffle took place nearby. That security scare might have delayed the start of his rally in Denver.
Some supporters at the Denver event had waited since 5:30 p.m. to see the candidate.
At one point, he predicted Hillary Clinton would return to Colorado before Tuesday. He said his campaign is doing extremely well in Colorado and recent poll numbers indicate a close race between the two.
He discussed Colorado companies that laid off workers and moved jobs out of the United States. He also talked about Coloradans who died at the hands of illegal immigrants.
He blamed a lack of action on the part of the federal government for allowing those immigrants to be in this country.
His speech wrapped up at about 11:20 p.m.
Trump’s schedule called for campaign stops in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia on Sunday.
