An enthusiastic crowd of Donald Trump supporters gathered Monday at the KI Convention Center to hear from the Republican presidential nominee.

It was a more vocal and energetic crowd than past Wisconsin rallies, with at least 5 protestors taken out of the room and frequent chants from supporters.

One of those chants was, "Tell the truth," directed at the media. Trump frequently spoke poorly of the media at the rally, saying news outlets are poisoning voters' minds.

"This is a rigged election," he said.

His supporters also expressed their frustration with election coverage.

"I think what really matters is not the top news item of the day, and it should be because we're making a decision in four weeks," said Sherry Clarke, a Trump supporter from Appleton. 

Trump took time Monday to discuss specifics of his plans to fight government corruption. 

"I am going to issue a lifetime ban on senior executive branch officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government," said Trump.
He also talked about his plans to bring jobs back to the country and help businesses.
"We're going to lower our business tax from 35% to 15%," he explained.
The focus of Trump's speech, however, was on border security and immigration reform. Trump once again mentioned plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and detailing plans to vet immigrants from certain areas.
Ultimately, supporters said they enjoyed hearing from Trump directly about where he stands on the issues.

About 3,000 people attended the rally.
