BLOOMINGTON – Hundreds met GOP candidate Donald Trump Sunday afternoon at the local airport. Although Trump was interrupted several times by protesters, including Black Lives Matter, he promised the Bloomington supporters that he would fix Illinois.

"You guys are losing it too fast, I gotta keep you here," Trump told the audience. "Do me a favor. Promise that you'll stay two more years without leaving, and I'll get it fixed. You guys owe a lot of money, a lot of money. They keep raising those taxes up,up. You know the problem is eventually everyone just leaves, and they have nothing, they have nothing."

"So stick around, and we're going to make you happy, we're going to make you happy," Trump said.

And he promised to make America great again.
