12/30/15, "Trump Rally Draws Record Crowd in Hilton Head,", Martin Staunton, Hilton Head

"It’s the day some Donald Trump supporters in the Lowcountry have been waiting for: the chance to see the Republican front-runner in-person. Donald Trump did not disappoint the vast majority of those in attendance. There was a standing room only crowd inside the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Spa....

Supporters on hand say Trump has a “tell it like it is” approach that is long overdue among politicians. Many shared that they do not feel any of his comments are divisive. Bryan Crawford, a Hilton Head resident, says Trump’s rhetoric is refreshing. “He says what he means. For so long, we’ve had politicians that say what people wanna hear…it’s nice to hear that he says says what he believes and that truly plays into why I do support him…he says what he believes, it’s not about being the popular guy in the room, it’s about doing what’s right for the country. Crawford said. It’s a sentiment shared by Jane Martin, who traveled from North Carolina to attend the rally in Hilton Head. "He’s honest, straightforward, he's not a politician, that’s the main thing I like about him.” said Martin....

The real estate mogul assured the crowd he is ready to take on Hillary Clinton if she wins her party’s nomination, but insists Clinton isn’t ready for him. “I promise you, Hillary doesn’t want to run against me.” said Trump. The crowd cheered and for a 15 year old supporter, Trump is more than just a presidential candidate, he’s like a rock star to Emma LaLiberte, who traveled from the Tarheel State to be in the same room as Trump. "It was so cool and I got my hat signed. He did. I was really happy.” LaLiberte said.
There were a lot of happy people at the Westin this morning. Many says they are happy that Trump has a commanding lead over Republican contenders heading into the New Year and many say this visit energizes them to head to the polls to show their support at the ballot box. South Carolina’s Republican primary is set for Saturday, February 20, 2016."
