LAS VEGAS (AP) - Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is getting laughs, cheers and signing magazine covers at a rowdy campaign rally inside a Las Vegas theater.

The audience inside the packed 1,620-seat theater inside the Treasure Island casino-hotel reacted excitedly to Trump’s criticism of media coverage, fellow presidential candidates and today’s announcement Republican Congressman Kevin McCarthy had dropped out of a race to lead the U.S. House of Representatives.

The nearly hour-long rally spanned Trump’s insistence he would create jobs, foreign relations, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and several other topics.

The Treasure Island is owned by friend and business partner Phil Ruffin whose introduction of Trump was interrupted by applause when the candidate entered the theater usually reserved for Cirque du Soleil performances

The two own the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.
