A frequent target at these rallies: Hillary Clinton, who Trump said "should've been indicted" over her email scandal. He also added in a throwback to the tumultuous years of the Clinton White House, mentioning the Whitewater controversy and reminding the crowd that "we can't get involved in that anymore."
He also attacked Barack Obama, saying that history would remember him as a "horrible president" who "didn't know what the hell he was doing."
The barbs were typical Trump, but for some his usual candor wasn't as compelling as it has been in the past. About half an hour into Trump's nearly hour-long remarks members of the crowd, which law enforcement officials estimated to be just shy of 6,000, began to file towards the back of the arena. Some told NBC News they were moving to the upper rafters, presumably for a quicker exit once the rally ended. Another young man draped in an American flag was prioritizing his own needs, saying "I just have to pee." One woman though, before being pulled away by her boyfriend, expressed dismay over the speech's content.
She told NBC News that Trump was "just talking more about Obama" instead of discussing how he himself would unify the country. Her boyfriend tugged her arm and, unprompted, clarified her words, saying that they were leaving early to go pick something up at her place of work.
