The New York businessman is traveling the country in an attempt to woo voters before the November election.

By Trump’s own estimate, 16,000 supporters came out in support. The capacity for a concert is 15,000.

The rally talk ranged from the intake of refugees from the Middle East, to economy and trade.

On plans to intake thousands of refugees into the United States, Trump balked.

“You have people coming from Syria. Look at Germany!” Trump exclaimed. “It’s a total and complete disaster. A complete disaster.”

Protestors also filled the streets outside, sparking verbal confrontations with supporters. No arrests were reported.
