RALEIGH, N.C -- Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump spoke before thousands of supporters at the JS Dorton arena Friday where he was mostly greeted by cheers and applause but also moments of protesting.
Trump spoke for about 45 minutes but was interrupted at least seven different times by outbursts from protesters scattered throughout the arena.
Each protestor was immediately escorted out and booed by Trump supporters.
At least one group of protestors could be heard shouting "Black Lives Matter."
Trump responded saying that the country needs to be united.
"Our country is so divided look at what happens," he told the crowd.
Trump also talked about the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and the mass shooting in San Bernardino, saying that the incidents would have turned out differently if the victims had guns.
"If you had a couple of folks in there with guns, and they knew how to use them and they were in that room, you wouldn't have dead people,” he said. “The dead people would be the other guys."
The candidate also took aim at Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
"She has got, and I mean this, no strength, no stamina and she cannot lead us," Trump said.
Supporters say they feel Trump's the best candidate to fix the economy.
"Our country is so deep in debt and he has the business experience,” said supporter Janice Thompson. “I believe he can get the country out of debt."
"He's going to get people back to work,” said Dianna Davis. “He's going to take deals that give people jobs."
Trump will hold his next two rallies on Dec. 5 in Spencer and Davenport, Iowa.
