Trump vows to fix Brent Spence Bridge if elected

WILMINGTON, Ohio -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump rallied in Clinton County Friday, announcing he'd replace the Brent Spence Bridge if he is elected. 

Trump spoke at 4:30 p.m. Friday at Airborne Airpark, vowing to bring jobs back to America, rebuild inner cities and to keep the country safe from terrorism.

“We’re going to fix and invest in our inner cities, we’re going to bring jobs back to the inner cities,” Trump said.

Trump did not announce how he planned to replace the Brent Spence or what he would do to cover those costs. 

Trump also said he disagrees with Hillary Clinton’s plan of allowing Syrian refugees to come into the country.

“Everybody here wants to take care of them, but we won’t end up like France… we have enough problems in our country,” Trump said.

He also said he will not allow terrorism to take place in the U.S.

“We’re going to have a top-notch, modern military,” Trump said. “We don’t have a choice.”

He said he will defend the border of the country by building a “great wall" which he said Mexico will pay for. He said the wall will be important in stopping drugs from coming into the country. 

“From the day I take office, it will always be America first,” Trump said.
