KINSTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held a rally in Kinston Wednesday.

Before the rally, several Trump supporters said that wanted him to stay focused on policy issues, and he largely did.

Trump outlines reforms he wants in D.C., including term limits in Congress. He used a catchphrase he’s introduced, telling his supporters they would “drain the swamp.”

And he criticized the Obama administration over rate hikes announced this week on affordable care act plans.

“What a disgusting situation. And, it was no good the day it was conceived,” he said of Obamacare.

He also talked about job creation.

He made no mention of the recent controversy over women who’ve accused him of inappropriate sexual contact.

The rally at the Kinston Regional Jetport was Trump’s second in North Carolina on Wednesday; he also spoke in Charlotte.

While Trump is expected to do well in Eastern North Carolina overall, races in Lenoir County have been tight lately. In 2012, Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama by just 32 votes in the county.

Ahead of Trump’s visit to the region, Democrats held a press conference to criticize him.

Congresswoman Alma Adams and former Congressman Bob Etheridge said Trump’s erratic behavior and offensive language make him unfit to serve as commander-in-chief.
