Trump draws near capacity crowd to MS Coast Coliseum

Trump’s campaign staff said more than 13,000 tickets were requested for the event, and security estimates that just about that many attended. Trump mentioned at the beginning of his speech that there was a overflow crowd, and those who couldn’t make it in were allowed to watch from the convention center next door. But Coliseum officials said that wasn’t true, and the convention center was not needed, nor opened.
