Trump Returns to Roots with 'New York Values' on Full Display

BETHPAGE, N. Y. — If Trump lost momentum by losing Wisconsin, you wouldn't have known it Wednesday night on Long Island.

"It'south grand to be home," the Queens-N. Y.-native said, lavishing like on a audience that was prepared to give it right back to him.

The at-capacity crowd of 10.000 (Trump tweeted later it was 17.000) showered Trump with cheers and applause at his first major NY rally, chanting "Build the Wall!" and "U-S-A!" multiple times during his shorter-than-usual, 37-minute remarks.

Trump'south normal riffs on national security were presently explicitly tied to New York, with references to the nine/eleven attacks on the World Trade Middle and the Pentagon.

"We all lived through it. We all know people that died," Trump recalled, before turning around to attack TX Sen. Ted Cruz for speaking badly of New York'south values. "I've got this guy standing over there, looking at me, talking about NY values with disdain in his face, with hated, with hatred of New York."

The GOP front-runner invoked the nine/eleven attacks a few more times throughout his remarks, praising the police, firefighters, and construction workers for bravery in the face of the attacks and for helping the city to rebuild.

And of the TX senator who knocked New York'south values? "Folks, I think you can forget about him," Trump said to cheers.

While heavier than normal security braced interior for protests, there were few interruptions interior Grumman Studio, where the event was held. When protesters did speak up, the crowd dealt with them in a way that was reminiscent of an Islanders game, not a political rally — best exemplified by the chants of "ass-h--e" direted at one protester before Trump came on the stage.

After the rally, Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter told NBC News that two people got in a fight during the rally and were arrested, but number one was injured in the incident.

Meanwhile, exterior the rally several hundred officers, some in revolt gear, patrolled the roughly three hundred protesters, illuminated by flood lights on the unseasonably freezing April night. Protests were tense but remained mostly non-violent.

Commissioner Krumpter estimated $300.000 to $400.000 in overtime costs for the event and commended his officers for their work.

Trump was introduced by his daughter Ivanka, who gave birth to her third baby less than two weeks ago. She told the crowd her father was "battle certified" and has a "long track record of winning."

And with new polls out that indicate Trump with over fifty % support from Republican voters in the Empire State that record could be extended. Even voters who aren't totally sure they're for him, love Eddie Olmsted, declare that in NY you've to be for Trump.

Noting that if Kasich were the nominee he'd "vote for him in a second," Olmsted said he probably won't vote for the OH Gov in the primary because "he'south in the background."

"I don't think this is the space to do that," the Farmingdale resident told NBC News. "I imply you've to be here, if not maintain Trump at minimum not to get anything far from his moment."

"This is his night," he said, noting the excitement. "You can feel it."
