Speaking to an audience of more than 7,000 at Dorton Arena, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump mentioned many of the issues his campaign has been founded on.

Illegal immigration, the war with ISIS and education reform were all addressed, without much detail as to what he would do about them, only that he vowed to tackle these issues differently than the current administration.

Trump was interrupted several times by protesters in the crowd, all of whom were escorted out by security.

Near the end of his short speech, Trump took questions, and then signed items from the gathered crowd before departing.

More information can be found at our live blog, and in the New York Times story about the rally.
