More than 10,000 people braved the cold to hear Presidential Candidate Donald Trump speak at the Mabee Center this afternoon. This rally came a day after Governor Sarah Palin announced her endorsement of Trump during an event in Iowa yesterday.
Palin rallied the crowd before Trump took the stage to garner votes from what he calls “the silent majority.”
Trump and Palin discussed education, healthcare, the military and the war on terror, but said the primary way Trump wants to “make America great again” is by winning.
“We don’t win anymore,” said Trump. “When was the last time our country won?”
Trump used war as an example. He spoke of growing up during a time when our country never lost a war, but now we never win.
He said Iraq is the perfect example of this loss and believes he should get credit for what is happening in Iran right now because he warned the country of the outcome years ago.
“We have got to know what to do,” said Trump. “We have people that don’t have a clue.”
Trump believes President Obama was too predictable when announcing the removal of troops from Iraq, where he believes our troops should have never been. According to Trump, this predictability has led to the state the nation is in today.
“We want to see good things happen for us again, we want to be smart, we want to be respected, we want to be the top of the heap,” said Trump. “We have a country that we are proud of and that we love and that we are not going to lose.”
Both Palin and Trump encouraged voters to get out and vote in the Oklahoma primary on March 1. The last day to register to vote in the Oklahoma primary is Feb. 5.
