    Raleigh, North Carolina (CNN) Protesters interrupted Donald Trump's North Carolina rally at least 10 separate times Friday night in the most staged, disruptive protest of the mogul's presidential campaign to date.

    The protests began about five minutes into the speech and continued until his closing lines nearly 45 minutes later, as different individuals and groups -- strategically placed in different locations all around the more than 7,000-person capacity auditorium -- caused disturbances with signs and chants.

    The GOP front-runner also said he thought he could convince the protesters to join his cause.

    "If I could speak to these four people, I'd say, 'Look, you may be a Democrat, you may be a liberal, who cares, we're going to make our country strong, we're going to make it good," Trump said. "I really think I could talk sense into them.

    It is spelled A-R-R-O-G-A-N-C-E!

    I wouldn't be surprised if Republican PACs are paying for these protesters to show up and taunt him.

    What he said does not match the definition of arrogance. Sounds to me like he is someone who wants to reach out to those with opposing views and bring people together.

    What I like about Trump:

    1. He is blunt; you always know where he is coming from. Makes it easy to trust him.
    2. He holds certain positions I find most important i.e. illegal immigration, national debt, foreign trade, etc
    3. He wants to make America better. I do not believe it is just a bumper sticker slogan with him.
    4. He is not a politician, he is not trying to be what he is not, he is just being himself.
    5. He will not play games with terrorists
    6. He will rebuild our Military
    7. He has a heart for people who are in need that is not tied to ideology

    What I have concerns about:

    1. Can he put together a team of advisers that will actually help him do the job right.
    2. His brashness puts people off. Can he develop relationships with other foreign leaders that are needful.
    3.Can he gain the respect of our Military leaders
    4. Might a scandal pop up at some time

    Watch the video at the link, pay attention to how he reacts to the protesters and then tell me again how he wants to reach out to them and bring them together. HA HA HA HA HA HA!!

    He doesn't say anything specific. Makes it hard to trust him.


    He has only delineated a position on immigration. On the national debt and foreign trade he has only said, "This is a problem. We aren't winning. I can make America great again."

    Yes, well a politician that campaigned on something like, "I want to stick America in the toilet" wouldn't get very far. Trump's is sloganeering, nothing else.

    Yep, and he is an arrogant, egotistical, elitist.

    He does not have a shred of nuance.

    Wasn't aware it was broken. It needs new leadership that the military trusts and respects. I don't see Trump as being that person.

    He has a heart for people that are in need? What possible evidence do you have of this? He lives to exploit people to make more money.

    Trump strikes me as a "my way or the highway", other people probably see him the same. Anyone with a lick of sense would not want to work with him.

    No, he can't.

    No.

    You mean more than what is happening during his campaign? Well, surely.

    My thoughts, exactly. And I like his confidence, but you can't change the minds of idealogues, and if the protests were not staged by the republican establishment, he would be trying to convert brainless leftist idealogues.

    Never happen.
