CARMEL, Ind. – Presidential hopeful Donald Trump was back in central Indiana on Monday to rally the support of Hoosier voters just one day before the 2016 Indiana Primary Election.
He spoke at the Palladium in Carmel, bringing several special guests with him. Fred Williamson (aka The Hammer) introduced Trump. And Trump brought former Purdue basketball coach Gene Keady to the stage. Trump also told the crowd about the endorsement he received from former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. Including Bob Knight, that makes a total of three well-known Indiana coaches who have publicly endorsed Trump.
During his speech, Trump once again brought up Carrier, and he told the crowd that they will pay a 35% tax when they bring their air conditioning units into the United States.
Trump also spent a great deal of time talking about China. He said it isn’t right that they’re taking our jobs, but yet we owe them $1.8 trillion. “Their leaders come in and we give them steak dinners in the White House… I actually jokingly said let’s take them to #McDonalds and get back to negotiating.”
Trump also mentioned the other candidates, and he said they don’t stand a chance against him.
Trump is now headed to South Bend for his last scheduled rally before the Indiana primary tomorrow. The rally will take place at the Century Center at 7 p.m.
Trump does not have plans to be in the Hoosier state tomorrow; he will make his post-election remarks at Trump Tower in New York.
