A daily look at how the presidential candidates of both parties are trying to win the “First in the South” primary.
GOP frontrunner Donald Trump entertained an estimated 8,000 people at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center on Tuesday, spending more than an hour bashing his rivals and the country’s leadership.
Trump hit on most of his usual points in criticizing what he considers too much American involvement in the Mideast and arguing the US is losing its economic competitiveness to nations like China and Mexico.
He did spend more time on radical Islam and terror than he has in previous trips to South Carolina, which he admitted was in response to the Paris terror attacks two weeks ago. He criticized President Obama for not taking radical Islam more seriously. The real estate mogul mocked the president’s comments this summer that called climate change the “greatest threat to our future.”
