MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - The big news of the Donald Trump rally in Madison may not have come from Trump at all, but rather Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), who announced, "I am pleased to endorse Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States."

As far as the namesake of all those rally signs though, he did a lot of the greatest hits. He mocked Marco Rubio, who he called "Little Marco," honing in on his debate performance, "We don't need a fainter to negotiate with China and Putin. We don't need a fainter to knock the hell out of ISIS, do we? We don't need a fainter."

As far as policy, we heard about the wall, but Trump also laid out a plan to punish companies who send jobs overseas with taxes.  Here he's talking about Carrier: "You're going to make air conditioners in Mexico, every single time you sell an air conditioner in the United States, you're going to pay a 35% tax. Every single time. And by the way, I hate to tell you this, I would say the exact same thing to Ford. And I would say the exact same thing to Nabisco. And I'd say the same thing to every damn company that wants to leave our country."

He also showed some of his rambunctious side, when a small plane flew overhead. He joked that it was ISIS, and that would "shoot that guy down so fast your head would spin."


Trump stirred controversy Sunday morning when he said didn't know enough to disavow former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

Trump often discusses flaps like this in his speeches, but he did not mention this one in Madison.

As the rally wound down, supporters thinned out, but Trump stayed locked in on loyalty, "I shouldn't say this. I shouldn't say this. But they say, I could do anything, and they'd still love me. And you know what, you could do anything, and I'm still going to love you too. Believe me."
