Republican Trump returns to Massachusetts for campaign rally

TYNGSBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has campaigned in Massachusetts, promising a tough national defense, repeal of President Barack Obama's signature health care law, strict enforcement of immigration laws and improved treatment of veterans.

The billionaire businessman spoke at a rally Friday in Tyngsborough, northwest of Boston.

He insists poll numbers show he continues to lead the Republican field and ridicules critics who see a slight drop in some surveys.

Trump's last campaign stop in Massachusetts was in late August, when he was a guest of a Boston-area auto dealership owner at a $100-per-person event he insisted wasn't a fundraiser.

Trump says he can win Massachusetts because Democrats are "sick and tired of watching our country lose."

He says he's drawn crowds so large he could fill the New England Patriots' stadium in Foxborough.
