Donald Trump presidential campaign
Immediately after his announcement in New York, Trump traveled to Iowa to campaign in the state ahead of the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. Trump has also campaigned extensively in New Hampshire, site of the first Republican primary. Trump’s campaign cancelled events in Charleston, South Carolina, in light of the June 17 mass shooting. Trump kicked off a western swing in early July 2015, giving rallies and speeches in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Trump held the largest rally of his campaign to date on July 11 at the Phoenix Convention Center. More than 9,000 people registered to attend Trump’s Phoenix rally on July 11. An over-capacity crowd at the Phoenix convention center of thousands watched Trump speak for more than an hour. His remarks were centered on illegal immigration, but also included denunciations of the businesses that had broken ties with him, the press and President Obama as well as Trump’s positions on many issues. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party, and Trump was introduced by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Trump invoked Richard Nixon’s “silent majority” speech, saying, “the silent majority is back”. The event also drew protestors and supporters outside the convention center. Ahead of the event, Trump’s comments on illegal immigration were not supported by Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake but supported by former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. Ben Carson, also a candidate for president, defended Trump. Trump later asked McCain for an apology for calling supporters at the rally “crazies”.
