Donald Trump held a massive rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Wednesday, just a day before he’ll appear in the Fox Business Republican debate on Thursday, January 14, 2016. The crowd was huge (YUGE!) and Trump hit it out of the park as he always does on the stump.
When Donald Trump walked into a packed, 10,000-capacity arena Wednesday night, the crowd erupted.
The GOP frontrunner for president has a bulls-eye on him more than ever this week. In Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Trump was the target of veiled criticism from both President Barack Obama and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who delivered the Republican response. At Thursday night’s Republican debate in South Carolina, he anticipates taking flak from his rivals while he’s at center stage once more.
But here, he was in his glory.
With “Eye of the Tiger” blaring on the loudspeaker, Trump waved, opened his arms wide and pointed at supporters as he walked to the stage.
“We don’t win anymore, you understand that?” he said, seizing on a signature line. “We’re a country that doesn’t win.”
He’s going into tonight’s debate facing some incoming fire from the rest of the field, though I expect he’ll deliver a stellar performance as usual.
