NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – Republican frontrunner Donald Trump campaigned in North Augusta Tuesday afternoon, just days before the South Carolina Presidential Primary. As controversial as Trump is, I spoke with a local woman whose family farm was saved by the GOP Candidate.
Betsy Sharp said she wants people to understand that Trump really is a good person. Sharp says her family got to see a tender side of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump.
Thirty years ago, Sharp’s father killed himself in hopes the insurance money would save their Burke County Family Farm.
“Donald Trump heard about the story and he stepped in to help save the family farm. So I’m here today to say thank you personally, face-to-face,” said Sharp.” Sharp said, at the podium with Trump. “What I want you all to know is how kind-hearted and caring he is. He cares about America and he cares about farmers. He cares about veterans.”
For an hour, Trump covered several major topics which included beefing up the U.S. military. “Our military is going to be so big, so strong, so powerful, nobody is going to mess with us.”
Trump said that he’s hoping to improve the economy. “I don’t object to China. I object to our leaders being stupid people.”
He promised, if elected the U.S. will be in a better place. “We are going to be respected again. We’re not respected. Our leaders not respected. Obama’s not respected.”
Trump ended his speech saying it’s only the beginning. “You’re going to remember this day and you are going to say to yourselves I remember that day two years ago, four years ago, ten years ago, It’s going to get older and older and you’re going to say this was one of the great days in my life because this was the beginning of making America great again.”
Trump’s next stop is in Beaufort, South Carolina for an event Tuesday night.
