Screaming fans in Ohio gave Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump the rock star treatment as he visited a local fairgrounds in Canfield on Labor Day.

Trump and his running mate Mike Pence briefly took over the Canfield Fair on Monday as their arrival attracted scores of supporters. While Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was attempting to get through a speech in Cleveland riddled with coughing spasms, an estimated 20,000 people crowded the midway at the fair hoping to catch a glimpse of Trump, WKBN reported.

A crowd had already gathered to greet Trump’s plane which landed at Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna around 1:45 p.m. From there, the motorcade of cars made its way to the Canfield Fair where word had gotten out that the GOP nominee would be making an appearance.

In the one hour and twenty minutes he was at the fairgrounds, Trump was seen by the public for about 12 minutes, according to WKBN.

Surrounded by secret service, Trump and Pence made their way through the crowds, waving and acknowledging the chants of “Trump” and “Build that wall.” The fair even created a symbolic wall as a fundraiser.

The crowds waited to catch a glimpse of Trump as he ducked in to the tent of the Mahoning County Republican Party where he signed autographs and shook hands. He addressed the crowd with a bullhorn before heading over to the administration building, where he spent about 45 minutes being interviewed by David Muir of ABC News.
