8:09 PM: Trump now reminds the crowd that virtually every Democrat running support “ripping babies from the womb.” He says he opposes late-term abortions because Republicans believe every baby is a “sacred gift from God.” Trump now talking about VA Gov. Ralph Northam wanting to dance like Michael Jackson before his wife stopped him. He says Northam wants doctors to talk to the mother if she wants to “execute” the baby.
8:04 PM: Trump spots someone in the audience and says he’s as Mexican as he is. He asks if he is a Mexican. The person apparently said he is Mexican. Left media will have a field day with this bizarre exchange:
Trump just pointed to a guy in the crowd, asked if he's Mexican, and insisted he's not really Mexican because he doesn't look Mexican.
Really want a reporter to ask Trump what he thinks Mexicans are supposed to look like.

8:02 PM: Trump says the media will be “thrilled” when he explains how Mexico is paying for the “super duper wall.” He says “you only have one choice” if you don’t want sanctuary cities.
“You must vote Republican,” Trump says. “You have to!”
7:59 PM: Trump says every Democrat running for president supports sanctuary cities and want “federal welfare for illegal immigrants on your tax.” He says the sanctuary county of Durham released an illegal immigrant who then murdered a 19-year-old woman. He wonders how sanctuary jurisdictions happened in North Carolina that released hundreds and hundreds of “dangerous criminal aliens.”
7:55 PM: Trump now reminding North Carolina of the booming economy. He says the unemployment rate for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans “has reached the lowest level in recored history.” He says it’s very important to him that African American youth unemployment is at a historic low along with the African American poverty rate.

He says Trump is “going to kick their ass in November.” Trump says “oh my Lindsey my Lindsey.” Crowd chants “USA!” Now Trump is introducing various officials from North Carolina.

7:38 PM: Trump says “Sleepy Joe doesn’t know where he is” or what he’s doing or what office he’s running for. Trump says if Biden wins, they are going to put him into a home and other people–“super-left radical crazies”–will be running the government.

7:34 PM: Trump talking about Boot-Edge-Edge quitting last night and a Senator from a state he is going to win (Minnesota) dropping out. He says they made a deal–“quid pro quo.” He says “they should be impeached. Quid pro quo.”
7:33 PM: Trump says Fox is interviewing “Mini Mike” because they want to be “politically correct.” He is now mocking “Mini Mike” for the “worst debate in history.” He’s not going to go down low tonight to imitate “Mini Mike” because he doesn’t want to copy himself. “He’s a disaster waiting to happen,” Trump says of “Mini Mike.” Trump says the primary is “being rigged against Crazy Bernie.” He says “Crazy Bernie is going to go crazy” and will be “more crazy” when he sees what they are doing.
7:31 PM: Trump again mocks “Sleepy Joe” for saying “Super Tuesday.” Says it would be over to him if he ever said “Super Tuesday.” He keeps mocking Biden for making “scary” mistakes on the campaign trail. He mocks Biden for saying 150 million people were killed by guns last year. “Can you imagine Trump saying that? These people would never let me live it down,” Trump says. “We can’t even make a little mistake.” Trump says you can’t make the mistakes Biden is making negotiating with other countries. He says those mistakes will be “very expensive.”
7:29 PM: Trump now talking about the booming American economy and destroying the ISIS caliphate and killing its founder. He says he also took out the “world’s top terrorist” Soleimani.

7:21 PM: Trump, now talking about his crowds, says the media would gush over crowd size if Sleep Joe had 1/10th of his audience. Crowd keeps chanting “four more years.” Trump says his rallies also don’t have too many protesters anymore. “No fun to be a protester at a Trump rally,” he says.
7:20 PM: Trump says after years of rebuilding other nations, “we are finally taking care of our own citizens.” He pays a special tribute to Wounded Warriors and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. He says terrorists will not be allowed into America because “we must keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.”
7:19 PM: Trump mentions that his administration has rebuilt the “awesome” military. Trump says one of his main promises was to end the “never-ending wars in the Middle East.” “We’re not law enforcement,” Trump says. “We’re bringing them back home.” He says America cannot be the “policemen of the world” and create democracies in countries that probably don’t even want it.
