AMBRIDGE — Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and one of Donald Trump’s most vocal supporters, introduced the Republican presidential candidate at Trump’s rally at Ambridge High School on Monday afternoon.
Giuliani opened by praising Trump’s performance in Sunday night’s debate.
“If there was any doubt about it, last night ended it,” Giuliani said. “That was the biggest and best performance I’ve seen by a presidential candidate in all the years there’s been presidential debates.”
He called what Trump outlined during the debate a “complete vision for the future of America” and told the crowd Trump would create coal jobs, manufacturing jobs, steel jobs as well as white collar jobs in the area.
Giuliani then turned to Obamacare, calling it “a hoax” and saying Trump would get rid of it.
“What Donald Trump is all about is giving power back to you,” Giuliani said.
To cheers from the crowd and chants of “lock her up,” Giuliani talked about Hillary Clinton’s emails and her private speeches, recently released by Wikileaks, in which she discussed wanting “open trade and open borders.”
“She wants to be president of the world, he wants to president of the United States of America,” Giuliani said. “He wants to be your voice, to fight for you and to fight for change.”
Giuliani closed by saying Trump would be a voice for those gathered in Ambridge. He brought up Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment and her statements saying everyone holds implicit bias.
“We’re not biased, we’re good people,” Giuliani said. “You work hard. You serve your country. You go to church. You do good things for the community. You’re good people. We love you. She hates you.”
