Donald Trump

KINSTON, NC (WTVD) -- Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rallied an enthusiastic crowd at the airport in Kinston Wednesday night.

Trump Force One landed in Kinston just after 7 and taxied over to the waiting crowd. He dished out the familiar red meat fueling his populist campaign and took aim squarely at Hillary Clinton.

"We have stupid people running this country, stupid people!" he charged.

"She lied to Congress under oath!" he continued. "She's the most corrupt person ever to run for president."

Trump stumped in Lenoir County three weeks after Hurricane Matthew's devastating floods, but did not make mention of the storm. He hit on immigration, taxes, and pushed hard against Obamacare on the heels of the Obama administration's recent projections of double-digit increases in 2017 for the program.

"Job-killing Obamacare is just one more way the system is rigged. The system is rigged folks, it's all rigged," he said.

The 90-minute rally was interrupted once by an anti-Trump demonstrator. Trump used the incident to push allegations that the Clinton campaign staff has been colluding with protestors to incite violence at Trump rallies.

"By the way, were you paid $1500 to be a thug, where's the protester?!" he asked.

But he ended on a confident note.

"In 13 days, we're going to win North Carolina and we're going to win back the White House, believe me," he said.
