HARRINGTON, Del.- Just a couple days after holding a campaign rally on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held another rally in nearby Delaware.
Trump spoke late Friday at the Quillen Arena on the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington.
Trump, who said he "loves Delaware," immediately spoke about job losses in the First State but vowed that if he becomes president, "We are going to bring the jobs back."
Trump also said that companies will once again make their products in the U.S., including Apple.
"They're going to start making products in our country," he said, adding, "I know how to fix the system."
Trump again reiterated his plan to build a wall along the Mexico border. He then asked, "Who will pay for it?" The crowd responded, "Mexico!"
It was rare for a major presidential candidate to visit Delaware ahead of the state's presidential primary vote on Tuesday. However, Trump is focused heavily on clinching the Republican nomination through voters' balloting in state primaries, thus avoiding a contested national convention in Cleveland in July. The businessman's win in his home state keeps him on a path to securing the 1,237 delegates he needs, though he'll have to perform well in the round of primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware on Tuesday and in California's huge contest on June 7.
