Trump centers Mississippi speech on race, immigration

Trump spoke on a wide range of subjects, including race, immigration, and his opponent, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. Trump slammed Clinton, who was a former secretary and U.S. senator. Trump called Clinton “a bigot” for taking votes from people of color as a given. He also said that she had “betrayed her duty towards our people,” referring specifically to Americans. Trump’s speech in Jackson was largely about race. This is despite his recent renewed efforts to appeal to Hispanic and African American voters. Trump stated to the crowd that the Democratic party had failed and betrayed African American communities. It’s time for the Democrats to compete for African American and Hispanic votes. Trump interrupted his speech to introduce Nigel Farage who was part of an effort to pull the U.K. out of the European Union. Farage received subdued applause as he was introduced. He drew parallels between Brexit, Trump’s goal to “redeclare American independence on Nov. 8,” the presidential candidate stated, referring specifically to election day. The crowd was loud again after Farage’s three- or four-minute speech. Farage declared, “If I were an American citizen, then I wouldn’t vote Hillary Clinton if they paid me.” This drew roaring cheers from the crowd. “Anything is possible when enough Americans stand up against the establishment.” Farage said, drawing roaring cheers from the audience. Trump attacked Clinton’s immigration policies, calling them “radical” and threatening to kill American jobs and lower wages. Trump stated, “Any immigration plan that I endorse must increase jobs and wages for American citizens… It should improve safety and security for US citizens.” It must also improve the quality life of American citizens.” The rally was attended by several Mississippi Republican officials as well as national Republican officials. Gov. Trump was introduced to the Mississippi Coliseum stage by Phil Bryant, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City Mayor. U.S. Reps. Gregg Harper, Trent Kelly and Cindy Hyde-Smith stood beside Trump’s podium. Trump also enjoyed front row seats as State Treasurer Lynn Fitch, and Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde Smith. Bobby Moak, the chairman of the Mississippi Democratic Party, criticised state officials for appearing alongside Trump. He said that Trump’s record includes disparaging women and minorities, as well as military families. Moak released a statement saying that Mississippi’s Republican leadership had a poor record in job losses, increased government spending and high unemployment. He also said that the group could not wait to host a special guest who helped usher the British cousins into the new year. Trump mentioned Mississippi five more times in his remarks. He also made a reference to Mississippi’s high unemployment rate, which is one of the highest in the country. He said, “We are going back to Mississippi jobs.” Officials from the state told Mississippi Today that Trump’s initial purpose was to hold an event, but added the rally at Coliseum. The event lasted approximately an hour and attracted between 4,000 and 5,000 people, even with such short notice. Perry stated that the fundraiser was put together first and then the rally was added later. The campaign stated that he was already here, so what could they do? Organizing a fundraiser is not unusual. It was a good idea. It’s not easy to raise money here, but they’ll do it.” As Trump left the Coliseum to listen to “You Can’t Always Get What You Desire” by the Rolling Stones’, people flooded out of Coliseum, happy to see the event and the November elections. Patricia Cuatt, a Richland resident said that Trump’s optimism and desire to see us return to our principles are encouraging.
