CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) – President-elect Donald Trump kicked off his “USA Thank You Tour” just south of the Miami Valley.
He was in Cincinnati on Thursday night and spoke to a large crowd inside U.S. Bank Arena.
If you didn’t know better, you probably would have thought it was another campaign rally. Trump gave his plans to change America just like he did before being elected.
While thousands of Trump supporters were inside for the event, there were hundreds of Clinton supporters outside of US Bank Arena.
Her supporters were there thanking Clinton for her three decades of service.
Thousands of Trump supporters chanted inside during the future commander-in-chief’s speech saying, “lock her up” and “build the wall.”
Trump told the crowd his main reason for his stop in Cincinnati was to say “thank you” to the Ohioans who helped him carry the state.
Which he won over Clinton by a margin of 450,000 votes.
Trump reiterated his plans to repeal Obamacare and give tax cut while also telling the crowd that now is the time to unite and that the country can no longer focus on what divides it.
He also took the time to make a big announcement.
“We are going to appoint “Mad-Dog” Mattis as our Secretary of Defense. But we’re not announcing it until Monday so don’t tell anybody,” he said.
Trump, referring to retired marine General James Mattis who led a marine division to Baghdad in 2003, who Trump called, “The closest thing we have to General George Patton.”
