Protesters, supporters show up for Trump rally in Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Amid cheers of "USA!" and frequent interruptions from protesters, presidential candidate and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump addressed a crowd at the Kentucky International Convention Center Tuesday evening.

Trump's speech covered a myriad of issues, from national security to education.

At one point he mocked Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton's slogan of "Make America Whole Again," comparing it unfavorably to his own, "Make America Great Again."

"Hillary Clinton does not have the strength or the stamina to be President," he said. 

Trump was frequently interrupted by protesters, to which he would often shout, "Get out of here!"

"In the old days...when we were less politically correct, that kind of stuff wouldn't have happened," he said of the protests.

He also lambasted the current administration.

"We don't have people who know what's going on, he said. "We have people grossly incompetent in office."

On the issue of national security, Trump said "everything" changed with the recent terror attacks in Paris and added that, "It's not going to happen to our country."

He called waterboarding -- a controversial interrogation technique -- "absolutely fine."

He said one of the keys to protecting the country was to block certain undocumented Syrians from entering the country.

"We're gonna win with our military," he said. "We're gonna knock the hell out of ISIS."

On the issue of education, Trump said, "We're getting rid of Common Core. We're getting educational local."

In closing, Trump shouted to the crowd: "People are going to respect our country again. I love you! We're going to win!"
