Republican presidential nominee Trump wrapped up his seventh rally in Arizona by hitting his presidential rival hard on the increase in premiums with the Affordable Care Act and her use of a private email server.

Trump spoke to a vocal crowd Saturday afternoon at the Phoenix Convention Center that interrupted the candidate a few times with chants of “lock her up,” and “drain the swamp,” references to his democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, and how the candidate and his supporters feel about the government in Washington D.C.

Trump spent the first part of his speech attacking Clinton on the recent announcement of increased insurance premiums for health insurance bought through the federal insurance exchanges under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

“Obamacare is a catastrophe for Arizona and a catastrophe for the United States of America,” Trump told his supporters. “Every single one of Arizona’s 15 counties is losing insurers because of Obamacare.”

Trump also went after Clinton on her email server and the recent announcement by FBI director James Comey. On Friday Comey announced that the FBI is investigating whether there is classified information in new emails that have emerged in its probe of Clinton’s server.

Trump said that this is the biggest political scandal since Watergate and added that: “She did this full well knowing her actions put our national security at risk.”

“Hillary has nobody to blame but herself for her mounting legal problems.”

He went on to say that the only way to beat corruption is by showing up and voting. Early voting has already begun in Arizona.

“Vote with all your heart and soul because we are going to make America great again,” Trump said.

Besides knocking Clinton on her emails and the increases in Obamacare premiums, Trump also said that he has a contract with the American people and at the core of this contract is to bring back the jobs that were stolen.

“We are living through the greatest jobs theft in the world,” he said.

Trump also announced that he would end Common Core and save the second amendment, which he said was under siege. He added that he plans to cut taxes for middle-class families and fully fund Interstate 11 from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

“We need a new policy that puts America first,” Trump said. “To all Americans, I say it is time for powerful leadership. Think of all the things we can accomplish in our first 100 days in office. We are a divided nation. We won’t be divided anymore.

“Together we will make America just again. We will America strong again and we will America great again.”
