Trump wows faithful at Buffalo, NY election eve rally. Fascinating to watch 10,000 chanting, Trump, Trump Trump, and USA, USA, USA, in today's politically correct world where it's difficult to say anything-Toronto Sun, Warmington

"Call it Trump Nation. Call it something you just don’t see every day.

Given the First Niagara Center crowd’s anticipation, it was as if the Rolling Stones were about to take the stage. Or they were about to witness a UFC event.

But this was a political rally.

It reminded one of a Ford Fest without the free hamburgers. But the message was much tougher.

It’s like Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump was in the octagon wailing on his opponents — not just the politicians, but China and Mexico, too.

The place was a frenzy as Trump walked out before thousands on the eve of Tuesday’s New York Republican primary.

“The energy in this room is awesome,” Buffalo’s Gail Gentry said. 

“Trump is great and we need something to shake things up — and Donald Trump is the only one who will do it.”

Shake it up he has. It was a punch fest.

“We are going to beat crooked Hillary so badly that your heads will spin,” Trump said in just one example of what the night was like.
“We will build that wall. Mexico is going to pay for the wall. You know it, I know it and they know it.”

"He gave supporters what they came to hear. The crowd could not get enough.

 
“U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A.,” the more than 10,000 chanted.


 "Trump, Trump, Trump." 
 
It was a fascinating spectacle to see live — especially in today’s politically-correct world where it’s difficult to say anything

At the beginning of his speech, a bunch of protesters locked arms together.

“OK, here we go, always by the cameras. Get them out of here.” The crowd loved it. It’s like somebody scored a goal, it was so loud with thunderous screaming. It was surreal.

And sure enough, police dragged about six protesters out of the rally. Trump supporters were not only surprised but ready for it.

In fact, a warning notice was blasted over the speaker before Trump came out telling supporters to not hurt the protesters but to stand over them and yell “Trump. Trump. Trump.”

Gentry tells me the divisiveness and anger is not just palpable at rallies. “You can’t talk about Trump at some parties or gatherings or even within families,” she said. “It is so divided. It can get pretty heated. A lot of times you have to stay away from the topic or even the people.”

But not at this rally. This event catered to the converted.

“We need him,” said Jeremy Esselburne.He is something this country has not had for such a long time.

Trump said his vow to Buffalo is that he is going to change things.
“In Mexico, we have a $58-billion-a-year trade deficit, not including the drugs that pour across the border and poison our young people.”

He derided companies that have moved their plants to Mexico and China, and said when he is president, he will fix their wagon.

“When I am president, I am going to call the president (of that company): ‘Congratulations on your move to Mexico. Every single air conditioning unit you make, you want to send to our border, every unit, you are going to pay a 35% tax on it.’

The Buffalo crowd loved every word.

“Let’s get them to move the jobs to Buffalo,” he said. “I am working for you folks. We are going to make America great again. Isn’t that a great legacy. Almost as good as owning the Buffalo Bills.”

Trump may not have achieved that goal, but he certainly owned this crowd."
