CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The people at the Trump's Cedar Rapids event on Thursday night, know what they want and what they want is Trump as the next president of the united states.

The people at Donald Trump's Cedar Rapids event on Thursday night, know what they want and what they want is Trump to be the next president of the United States.

Hundreds stood shoulder to shoulder in a packed ballroom in Downtown Cedar Rapids to cheer on Trump.

Many of them backing Trump because they want to, "Make America Great Again."

"Seems like he is telling the truth. My hope is that he surrounds himself with good people and turns this country around because this is a good country and we need to stay that way," said Cody Mclaughlin from Burlington.

 Not the most popular candidate when he entered the race, Trump has won the Republican nomination and the vote of many Iowans who weren't always Trump fans.

 "I was really turned off at first, but I have really been paying attention because who could vote for Hillary, the lying person," said Etta Miller from Springfield.

  "We got to support Trump. We don't know as much about Trump as maybe we would like, but I know more than enough about Hillary. She is pro Planned Parenthood and that is the murder of babies," said Don Rinderknecht from Cedar Rapids.

  The Republican party and Trump have been criticized for being racist in the past. 

   "I don't care. He may be a little prejudice, but. . . I know it is not politically correct to say, but I don't care. I care more about military, strong national security, our strong position in the world, the supreme court. . . . I care more about those issues than a candidate's view on race. That is the most irrelevant topic in this election," said Danielle Brazant from Marion.

 When asked if they had any concerns about Donald Trump, many of the Iowans at the event said Trump's mouth gets him in trouble.

 But many also said that would not keep them from voting for him.
