Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a crowd in Little Rock Wednesday night that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton “left” them, and that the Clintons wouldn’t be as big a draw as Mr. Trump is now.

“I have to tell you this: Hillary and Bill left Arkansas. They left you, folks,” Mr. Trump said. “They left you. Whether you like it or not, they left you.”

“And I guarantee you, if she or he were here tonight, they wouldn’t be having 12,000 people filling up this arena, that I can tell you,” he said. “And the fire marshal would not be up here to make a speech that this is the all-time record for this facility.”

Mr. Clinton served as Arkansas’ attorney general and governor before first being elected president in 1992 and winning re-election in 1996.
