"Trump urged people to vote for him in the May 17 primary. Oregon is typically a blue state in presidential elections, but Trump said he’ll carry the state in November. There were a couple of hecklers in the crowd. One, who held up a Mexican flag, was escorted out. Protesters gathered outside the events center long after Trump left the stage.

In spite of Eugene’s reputation for liberal activism, protests remained peaceful and there were no arrests, according to police."

"GOP nominee-to-be Donald Trump mixed honey and vinegar in a free-wheeling speech Friday in front of a packed house at the Lane Events Center.


Roughly 4,400 people got into the events center, with hundreds more turned away. And there were few interruptions to Trump’s address. But when the crowd identified a protester, Trump immediately had them removed.
........... 




................. 

Outside the venue, more than 500 hundred protesters gathered outside the entrance to the fairgrounds. Some protesters tried to block vehicles from entering the fairgrounds parking lot. To keep the entrance open, police blocked the protesters from part of the street and pushed them back....

As Trump’s speech was going on in the venue, the crowd flowed onto West 13th Avenue, which was temporarily closed along with some surrounding streets. The band Mariachi Los Patos played songs in support of the protesters, including the Ducks fight song and “This Land Is Your Land,” and a sno cone cart was set up in the area. Protesters and supporters of Trump hung around, having debates about the potential presidential candidate as others continued to chant and display signs....

“People are pouring in here,” he said of illegal immigrants.
..........
Trump also touched on Oregon issues, though he repeatedly pronounced the state’s name “Are-re-gone.” In recent decades, Oregon has seen a huge loss of timber mills and manufacturing jobs, he said, with a big rise in food stamp use.

“The federal government is ripping Oregon off big-time,” he said. “We’re gonna fix that.”
.......
Toward the end of the address, Trump urged attendees to vote for him in the coming May 17 primary. His campaign is “going to carry your state in November,” he pledged. Should he pull it off, Trump would be the first Republican presidential candidate to win Oregon since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

But Trump said that his campaign had tapped into a powerful current of dissatisfaction at the political establishment and status quo. The Republican primaries have seen record turnouts this year, and the GOP television debates saw record ratings, he said....
“We have a movement going on in this country like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
..........
I’m nothing more than a messenger,” he added.
..........
As attendants were leaving the rally, hundreds of protesters remained on the scene, lining the gate of one of the fairgrounds exits and then spread out to try and block multiple exits. They held signs and Mexican flags, chanting slogans like “dump Trump” and “hands up, don’t shoot” at the police, who faced them on the other side of the fence and asked them to move and clear the area. 
............
By 9:30 p.m., police and protesters had dispersed. Police did not make any arrests or use of force during the event, authorities said. Supporters, many of them sporting Trump hats, T-shirts and pins, started flowing into the events center at around 4 p.m. Facing a long wait, they crowded near the stage, sat and talked in circles, and lined up for hot dogs, burgers and nachos. The sound system played numerous Rolling Stones songs — the day after the band asked Trump’s campaign to stop using their music at his events. Paula Praus-Williamson, a 63-year-old Eugene public school teacher, said she is supporting Trump because he backs military veterans.
.....
I’m a college-educated woman, and I’m here supporting him. They say I don’t exist,she joked. Praus-Williamson, who has voted for both Democrats and Republicans, said she feels “it’s time to try something different.”
...........
“I really like that he’s been telling the political establishment that they can’t control him, and he’s been funding his own campaign,” she said. Other politicians “all have to pay those favors (from donors) back at some point.”
...........
Scott Willis, a Eugene resident originally from Wisconsin, said he was surprised that Trump had come to Eugene. “There’s so many liberal wingnuts here,” he said.
..........
Trump “has my support,” Willis said. “We should have built a wall (between the U.S. and Mexico) a long time ago.”... Willis added that he wasn’t concerned that recent national polls have Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump. “Most of the information that’s out there, it comes from CBS, ABC, and NBC,” he said. “Come on. They’re all liberal. Hillary is their candidate.”
...........
Mae Simmons, 59, drove up from Klamath Falls for the event. She said that, at first, she was torn between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Trump in the GOP race. But Trump strikes her as more genuine and friendly, she said.
...........
“They’ve tried to dig up dirt, but they can’t find one person who knows him to say bad things about him,” she said.
........
Simmons said she wouldn’t change anything about Trump, either in his policies or in his behavior. “I don’t want him to get soft now and start to waffle,” she said. “That’s how he’s gonna lose.”"
