Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Kenansville, North Carolina this afternoon, his second event of the day.
Trump’s rally will be held at the Duplin County Events Center beginning at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
This is Trump’s second stop in North Carolina on Tuesday, as he previously held a rally at High Point University. During his speech there, Trump continued to talk about immigration and foreign policy in light of the recent bombing in New York City, saying that Hillary Clinton is not tough enough.
“Clinton talks tougher about my supporters than she does about Islamic terror,” Trump said. “Where is your condemnation of these people?”
Trump once again blamed Hillary Clinton for the rise of ISIS and criticized her for not using the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” She has in fact used this term, although she tends to avoid it as not to make it sound as if the United States is at war with an entire religion.
“From my perspective, it matters what we do more than what we say,” Clinton said back in June. “And it mattered we got bin Laden, not what name we called him. I have clearly said we — whether you call it radical jihadism or radical Islamism, I’m happy to say either. I think they mean the same thing.”
North Carolina is one of the key states in the 2016 election, and Donald Trump has spent a significant amount of time in it. The state has voted Republican in three out of the past four elections, with the only exception being 2008, when Barack Obama was able to turn it blue. The state is currently a tossup, with Trump and Clinton tied in Real Clear Politics’ polling average. FiveThirtyEight forecasts that Donald Trump has a 55.3 percent chance of winning North Carolina in November.
