Trump is about to deliver a speech in Nashville. Follow me for a real-time video thread.
Here we go
Trump claims to "love country music," commends the Nashville crowd size, says he's "the only politician who produced more than I said I was going to produce."
Trump points at and blasts the "fake news" as the crowd lustily boos.

"Look how many of them. Oh boy -- that's a lot of people back there. Fake news."
.@SenBobCorker gets booed after Trump mentions him! And the president certainly doesn't discourage it.
Trump yells "no more apologies!" as the crowd chants, "USA! USA!"
Trump calls Marsha Blackburn's Democratic opponent, Phil Bredesen, "a tool," then claims that Nancy Pelosi "loves MS-13"
Trump attacks "crooked Hillary" as the crowd chants "lock her up!" then goes on a bizarre rant about #spygate.

"Is there anybody in this big, beautiful arena right now that's infiltrating our campaign? Will you please raise your hand."
Trump attacks Jay Z for supporting Hillary, hits him using "language that was so filthy that it made me like the most clean cut human being."

"He would stand up there before those crowds. And, by the way without any musical instruments, I had much bigger crowds than he did."
TRUMP on opioids: "The numbers are way down. We are getting the word out. Bad stuff. You go to the hospital. You have a broken arm. You come out, you are a drug addict with this crap. It's way down. We're doing a good job with it. "
With the crowd in stunned silence, Trump -- who has not started building his wall -- goes on a rambling rant about how he's already constructing the wall in San Diego
Trump claims that Mexico is still going to build his wall and "they are going to enjoy it."

"Mexico -- I don't want to cause a problem. I don't want to cause it. But, in the end, in the end, Mexico is going to pay for the wall. I'm just telling you that. I'm just telling you."
Trump, ranting, yells about the dangers of immigration and recounts incidents of violence in grisly details. The crowd is mostly silent.
In one two minute stretch, Trump rants about crime in Chicago, brags about reducing illegal immigration, and claims that Democrats want to repeal the 2nd amendment. He's all over the place.
Trump goads the crowd into calling members of MS-13 "ANIMALS!" Creepy stuff.
Trump leads the crowd into booing cancer-ridden Sen. John McCain for voting against ACA repeal.

"That cost us a lot, and nobody knew that was going to happen, because we had it done. And the person who voted that way, only talked repeal and replace!"
Trump encourages boos of George W Bush

"Bush -- $7 trillion in the Middle East. Great. Great. Great investment. A lot of death. Death and blood and money. Horrible."
Trump claims that before he became president, the VA was staffed by "sadists" who "would treat our vets badly. You had people that would be terrible to our vets and you couldn't fire them. You had people that would rob. You would catch them. You couldn't fire them."
Trump claims that every world leader advised him against moving embassy to Jerusalem -- and he did it anyway.

"I was called by every leader in the world 'don't do it. Don't do it. We don't want it. Don't do it.' And I understood. And we did it. And we did the right thing."
Trump on the book his speech is printed in: "It must have cost like a fortune. I haven't used it yet. So beautiful. Leather. Most expensive leather money can buy. You know. Thing probably cost $2,000. Look, got the seal. Remind me to take it when I leave. It's so beautiful."
Trump goes on a bizarre rant about how beautiful the new embassy in Israel is, despite how frugal the government purportedly was while building it
TRUMP: "Remember when I would make a speech and talk about African-Americans and I would say, 'highest crime rate, bad education, bad this, bad that.' And what did I say? 'What the hell do you have to lose?' And now we have numbers coming out that are so fantastic."
Trump brags about the size of his hands.

"We'll build new strength into our country, new hope into our communities, and we'll do it all with these big, beautiful hands. Look at these hands."
Trump closes with this: "We are one family, and one glorious nation under God. Without a question, without a doubt, we will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America safe again. And, we will make America great again. Thank you very much."
