.@realDonaldTrump calls Mexico the 8th wonder of the world for its manufacturing growth.

.@realDonaldTrump salutes @MikeKellyPA

5 protestors disrupt #Trump with signs reading “Tax Forms”. Crowd drowns out protest per the norm.

#Trump praises “clean coal”. When #Obama touted same, R’s said there was no such thing.

Trump tells protestor “Go home to Momma...and your Momma’s voting for Trump.”

.@realDonaldTrump hits lots of notes with the chorus, but most are ahistorical and flat on evidence.

.@realDonaldTrump rally @_ErieEvents is a bit like a Friars Club roast where everyone means the things they say.
