SELMA, N.C. (WNCN) — Donald Trump focused almost entirely on foreign policy, the military and terrorism during a campaign stop in Selma on Thursday.

The Johnston County event was one of two stops the Republican presidential candidate made in North Carolina on Thursday.

Thousands turned out to cheer Trump.

“We need somebody who can do better, who can change things, who can help our country be stronger,” said Chase Stancil of Kenly.

Trump brought with him several admirals, generals and Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. He outlined his approach to combating ISIS and talked about the need to build up the military, all while speaking not far from Fort Bragg.

“The military families of North Carolina have shed their blood and poured out their hearts for our country,” he said.

He advocated against building foreign democracies and toppling regimes.

“Instead our focus must be on keeping America safe and destroying ISIS,” he said. “We have no choice on that.”

He attacked Clinton on her approach to the Syrian refugee crisis.

“A Trump administration will suspend the Syrian refugee program and keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country,” he said.
