Donald Trump knows how to rally a crowd.
The Republican presidential candidate did exactly that Thursday night while speaking to a near-sellout crowd at LSU’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
An estimated crowd of 10,000 filled the basketball stadium to hear Trump speak.
But first, he had to add some LSU flavor.

“Is LSU going to win the big game next year?” Trump asked the crowd.
He answered himself, “Yes!”
Trump followed with his rationale
“Good team. Good coach. Good Everything.”
Trump also ignited the crowd by beginning an LSU chant and indicating that no fans know more about winning than Tigers fans.
Spotted in the arena was LSU standout defensive end Lewis Neal, who gave his take on the upcoming election to the New York Times’ Trip Gabriel.
“I’m open minded,” Neal said.
