A large crowd of supporters turned out in Green Bay Friday night to see Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
Trump told the audience that if he wins, the country will start winning again. “We’re going to win on trade, we’re going to win with our military – we’re going to take out ISIS, we’re going to win for our veterans who have been totally mistreated.”
Trump also officially endorsed House Speaker Paul Ryan in next Tuesday’s primary. He called Ryan “a good man,” adding that they while they may disagree on a couple of things, they do mostly they agree.

The billionaire has been under fire from many Republican leaders this week after he said he wasn’t quite ready yet to endorse Ryan in a partisan primary next week. His decision to endorse the Speaker came after most of the state’s prominent Republicans skipped his rally, with many citing conflicts as the reason for not attending.
The rally drew several hundred people out to see Trump speak, while a few dozen protesters stood outside the KI Convention Center.
