The Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee was packed with thousands of die hard Donald Trump fans who listened to Trump talk for nearly an hour and show off cue cards to hammer his point home, asserting that he should be voted in as the next U.S. President.

The night was filled with cheers and jeers. The ABC Action News crew at the event counted five protesters kicked out of the rally.  hey waited until it was quiet enough to be heard, then began their screams of contempt towards the Republican presidential nominee. One man yelled to Trump that he loved Russia. As he was escorted out of the building, he held up two middle fingers.

“Where the hell did that guy come from?” Trump asked the crowd.

In his campaign speech, he talked about building a wall in between Mexico and the United States and making Mexico pay for it, a issue he's brought up repeatedly throughout his campaign. He touched on the American Dream of owning a home, taxes, and bringing companies back to the U.S. He said he would penalize companies that decide to do their business overseas.

Trump got some of the loudest applause as he talked about terrorism.

“Barack Obama is the founder… of ISIS,” Trump said. “Barack Obama, number one, is incompetent, and number two, he is the founder in a true sense. He probably could've prevented ISIS from forming.”

Trump spent very little time talking about his VP running mate Mike Pence -- but spent even less time defending himself. Trump came under fire this week for a comment he made about keeping Clinton from becoming president.

"Hillary wants to abolish -- essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks.  Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know," Trump said earlier this week. "But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if Hillary gets to put her judges in. Right now we're tied.”

Some suggested Trump was threatening Clinton with violence.  

Trump later clarified his comment, saying he was simply trying to unify against Clinton in the voting booth.

The Kissimmee crowd acted like they were at a rock concert, at times screaming for the candidate to say his now famous lines, like “build that wall, build that wall.”

Trump has said Florida is a must-win. This won’t be the last Floridians see of Trump or Clinton. Both will be campaigning heavily here in the coming months.
