A Show of Hispanic Support for Donald Trump (Well, One at Least).

Instead he retreated here, to his comfort zone — Cirque du Soleil’s Mystère Theatre at Treasure Island Hotel and Casino on the strip — and put on a show.Donald Trump’s hotel chain has confirmed that credit cards used at seven high-end properties — including establishments in New York, Las Vegas and Chicago — may have been compromised as a result of malware that went unnoticed on system computers for more than a year. Trump mixed in his signature wisecracks and insults with a hefty dose of audience participation, asking supporters to call out the names of countries taking advantage of the United States and inviting a woman with a fire-red dye job to stand and be recognized, as he gushed, “I wish I had that hair.” At one point, as Trump complained about the appearance of his nose on a recent People Magazine cover, a woman seated in the front row waved a copy of the magazine.

Bergdahl, who’s a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed,” Trump said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island. Trump pulled the woman, who identified herself as Hispanic, on stage, and the crowd of 1,600 cheered as she proclaimed her support for the Republican pack leader. It was practically an aside in a litany of complaints at the end of a more than hourlong, free-wheeling speech that included a large dose of media bashing and a claim that he was behind Rep. Though Trump’s candidacy has thrived on conflict, he pulled out of the Hispanic Chamber event last Friday, a day after POLITICO reported on the tough line of questioning the group’s leaders had planned for him there, and announced plans for a rally here. “The risk of another Jorge Ramos moment is too great and the reward for successfully navigating the event is too small,” explained Bruce Haynes, co-founder of Purple Strategies. “He’s trying to assemble a broad-based populist coalition of voters with a direct appeal to specific, visceral economic and cultural concerns.” Treasure Island, owned by Trump’s friend and business partner Phil Ruffin, is practically a Trump biosphere.

The hotel chain first warned of a potential breach last week, but did not offer confirmation until Monday — more than two months after security journalist Brian Krebs first reported that Trump computers appeared to have been hacked. “This tracks almost exactly what I heard from banks in June of this year, who told me they had little doubt that Trump properties in several U.S. locations — including Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and New York — were dealing with a card breach that appeared to extend back to at least February 2015. Trump will hold his rally first on the Las Vegas Strip at a theater that, perhaps fittingly, is home to an installment of the theatrical and grandiose Cirque du Soleil series. His attorney, Eugene Fidell, said in a statement that Trump “has become a broken record on this subject.” Bergdahl has been accused of leaving his post in southeastern Afghanistan in June 2009. Three hours before the event, dozens of diehards had already lined up outside the theater entrance, around the corner from the casino floor and opposite a kiosk for the Instant Millions lottery with signage proclaiming “Everyone’s a winner” below a pile of solid-gold dollar signs.

After former Clark County Republican Party chairman David McKeon opened the event by explaining to attendees that “a caucus is just a fancy word for a meeting where we all get together,” Ruffin took the stage to plug Trump. As Ruffin described Trump’s success obtaining a lower interest rate from creditors to Trump Tower in Vegas by skipping payments to them, he was interrupted by a commotion towards the back of the venue. Then he completed a little riff about how the editors at People had manipulated the photo to give him a wart on his nose that doesn’t exist, signed her magazine and kissed her on the cheek. Hotel patrons who used bank cards at the affected properties during the time the malware was present are being extended one year of complimentary fraud resolution and identity protection services by Mr.

Trump arrived dramatically through a public entrance as the chords of “You’re the Best” by Joe Esposito came on over the house speakers, and the main act made his way through the crowd. “I’m going to finish telling my story,” said Ruffin after Trump had taken the stage. He went on to say that Trump had employed “hundreds of thousands” of Hispanics. “I just met with a whole group, the Hispanics,” Trump told the crowd. On the heels of a similar incident confirmed by brokerage firm Scottrade in the days since the Experian breach was first reported, the cyber hack suffered by Mr. His speech spanned a spider-web of topics that included his disdain for media coverage, many of his fellow Republican presidential candidates and current political leadership as well as Thursday’s news that McCarthy had dropped out of a race for House speaker. “You know, Kevin McCarthy is out. Trump’s hotels is now the third major security breach to come to light in only a week’s time. “We take the privacy of personal information seriously.

You know that, right?” he asked the crowd. “And they’re giving me a lot of credit for that because I said you really need somebody very, very tough and very smart. … Immediately upon learning of a possible incident, we notified the F.B.I. and financial institutions, and engaged an outside forensic expert to conduct an investigation of the incident,” Mr. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois on Oct. 2, asks a federal judge to grant class-action status so other hotel patrons can pursue remedy. Trump’s was breached by hacktivists who left a message wishing “America’s first openly [expletive] Presidential Candidate” good luck on the campaign trail.
