MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump will speak to voters at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center Tuesday night, and people have come in droves to hear The Donald speak.
Trump’s presidential campaign rally starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the convention center and organizers say Trump supporters started lining up at 10 a.m. to be sure to get a seat at the rally.
Event organizers expect more than 8,000 people for Trump’s rally, with the candidate’s camp prepared to make more space, but thousands were already in the Myrtle Beach Convention Center hours before the assembly was to begin.

If those numbers hold, this will be the largest rally of any Republican candidate on the Grand Strand.
“I hope he talks about our borders. What’s going to happen in the future. This war against ISIS. The USA in general,” says Bob Jankowski, who drove from Calabash to take part in the rally.
There’s a chance Trump will touch on controversial claims he saw “thousands of people” cheering in New Jersey after the 9-11 attacks. The Republican presidential front-runner still insists he has proof to back his claim.
Heading to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Really big crowd—so much to talk about!

It’s likely Trump will also discuss terrorism and international affairs, but News13’s Meghan Miller talked to Trump’s camp Tuesday evening and they reported Trump “has no prepared remarks,” and he’ll talk about whatever he wants.
Trump dominates the state’s latest CBS News/YouGov poll at 35 percent. Dr. Ben Carson trails at 19 percent and Senators Marco Rubio at 16 percent and Ted Cruz at 13.
