During his latest rally in Aiken, South Carolina, Republican candidate Donald Trump seemed to adapt a very different attitude that what we were used to, not mentioning a single one of his opponents for the Republican nomination. Also, this is an even bigger surprise, since on Friday, he highly criticized Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s Evangelical credentials in Iowa.
During his one-hour long speech, Donald Trump approached various topics, covering issues he usually ignored during other rallies, alongside taking questions for another hour, from South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, as part of the Conservative Leadership Project’s seventh presidential forum.
The Republican mentioned that he would be looking forward to “strongly conservative” justices and “great scholars” that “respect and admire” our Constitution, when asked about what he would be looking for in a Supreme Court justice appointee.
The accusations were present during the rally
When it came to EPA regulations, Donald Trump couldn’t help himself and made some accusations.
“You know, I’ll give you one regulation, So I build, and I build a lot of stuff. And I go into areas where they have tremendous water, I won’t use names, but tremendous water,” he said. “And you have sinks where the water doesn’t come out. Right? We all know, you go buy a new sink. And you turn it on, well, aw, I want to wash my hands. You have showers where I can’t wash my hair properly, it’s a disaster!”
And he didn’t stopped to this. “…Now there’s no water problem, you know it’s one thing in the desert. The problem is you stay under the shower for five times as long, you end up wasting more water than you would’ve the other way.”
The Muslim ban issue, presented again
Of course, if he didn’t mention his competitors for the White House race, this doesn’t mean that his already infamous plan to ban all Muslims from entering the country, temporarily, wasn’t inflicted. Donald Trump even claimed that a lot of those who initially weren’t agreeing with the idea began to come around.
“We have to get our country under control,” Trump said. “And all of a sudden I see the same thing. It was pretty brutal four days ago, for Trump, do you agree?… Now all of a sudden you’re seeing everyone coming in, I’m even seeing liberal hosts, and people, they’re saying you know, he’s got a point.”
No Trump rally without protesters
Like expected, the rally was again interrupted by protesters. A spokesperson for the Islamic Center of Charlotte was evacuated twice, while a group held a sign reading “REFUGEES WELCOME”, according to CBS News.
Finally, the same source mentions that there were also funny moments during the event, as one man showed up dressed as Abraham Lincoln, another one walked around dressed as Santa Claus, while a third one wore a sombrero. The latter was invited to stand up from the crowd by Donald Trump himself.
