Donald Trump spoke to a rowdy, boisterous crowd at a town hall meeting last night in New Hampshire. They cheered Trump’s statements and booed their villains in common, such as Hillary Clinton.

“These are my people,” Trump said, smiling, after commending the spirit of the group.

Some of the biggest boo’s came when Trump discussed the release of Bowe Bergdahl, and his swap for five Taliban leaders. However the crowd cheered enthusiastically when Trump called Bergdahl a “dirty, rotten traitor.”
