Donald Trump says it’s not all about him. No, seriously.

Campaigning in Nashville, Tennessee, Trump on Saturday paid homage to his supporters — claiming they are a part of “a movement” and using colorful language to beg for their support.

“This is a movement,” said Trump, who often speaks about himself in campaign appearances. “I don’t want it to be about me. This is about common sense. It’s about doing the right thing.”

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Donald Trump campaigned Thursday in Greenville, South Carolina, telling a standing room only crowd that U.S. leaders are weak, he will win the Hispanic vote and then proved his hair is real by having a woman tug on it.

Trump spoke at the T.D. Convention Center where people had started lining up at 8 a.m. for his noon appearance.

The crowd was on its feet, clapping and cheering and snapping pictures as the billionaire reality show host and developer was introduced as, "the next President of the United States."

Donald Trump Visits Dubuque, Iowa

By: Mike Garrigan

UPDATE: DUBUQUE, IA (WIFR) -- It was the largest crowd ever for an event at the Grand River Center in Dubuque and Donald Trump did not disappoint supporters.

It is the kind of talk we have grown accustomed to with the Republican front runner. It was brash, pointing fingers, and off-the-cuff with absolutely no prompter.

"If you are running for president, you shouldn't be allowed to use a prompter, so I think about my speeches a lot and what I am going to say, but I don't use notes and I don't read speeches because it's easier, but you don't have the same vibrancy," said Trump.

MOBILE, Ala. — Donald Trump walked onto the stage of his Friday-night stadium rally here to the sound of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" and walked off to Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It."

The time in-between was spent touting his business success, attacking Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Clinton, railing against illegal immigration and criticizing the Obama administration's foreign policy and foreign trade policies.

The crowd of about 30,000 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium gave Trump, the front-runner among Republican candidates, a rock-star reception, applauding wildly for descriptions of his accomplishments and booing at the mention of Obamacare, lobbyists and illegal immigrants.

Trump's supporters in the Mobile crowd saw him as no-nonsense and capable. They didn't mind if he ruffles a few feathers on his way to "making American great again."

Donald Trump took part in a New Hampshire political tradition Wednesday, holding a town hall on the same night one of his top rivals was holding court with voters in a nearby town.

Trump, speaking with voters in Derry, N.H., at around the same time former Florida governor Jeb Bush held a town hall in Merrimack, told one voter who asked about his “hubris” that “it takes guts to run for president.”

In a lengthy answer that also touched on the centerpiece of his campaign — his plan to end illegal immigration — the billionaire real estate developer said he would “build the greatest wall that you’ve ever seen.”
