TULSA - Donald Trump and Sarah Palin were living on Tulsa time this week during one of their scheduled stops.

They spoke at an event held at the Mabee Center on the Oral Roberts University campus.

Scroll through the tweets below to see what they had to say.

A crowd of about 10,000 turned out for the rally that included former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said thousands more were turned away outside the center.

Dozens of students from nearby Victory Christian High School showed up hours early for a seat.

Trump took the stage just after 1 p.m. he was over an hour late, but that didn't stop him from being the outspoken candidate his supporters have come to expect.

“We have a movement going on, folks. We have a movement. This is not a normal situation,” Trump said.

Trump was interrupted a few times by protesters as he spoke at the Mabee Center, including one man who was escorted out of the event.

Trump said "Get him out of here" and the man wore an American flag bandanna over his face as police took him out.

The GOP frontrunner told Tulsans he wants more unpredictability with the release of military strategy and, he says, war is being waged on the second amendment.

“There is an assault on Christianity, there is an assault on guns, there's an assault on everything we stand for and we're going to stop the assault, OK?” He said.

When Sarah Palin spoke onstage, she called Obama the "weak-kneed capitulator in chief" and said military veterans have some difficulty in re-adjusting to civilian life when they return and said veterans have to wonder if they are respected.

“Like I said yesterday in Iowa, no more pu**yfooting around,” said Palin.

It's the second time the nation as seen tea party favorite Palin join forces with Trump. She told supporters to stay strong in their stances.

“They’re telling us to just chill? No we won't chill, it's time to drill baby drill down on what's going on and hold them accountable,” Palin said.

The crowd began chanting "U-S-A" after Palin said the military should be allowed to do its job "and go kick ISIS' a$$."

Eighteen-year-old junior Austin Butler says 2016 will be the first year he votes, and he wants to take the opportunity to hear candidates in person. Butler was with several classmates on the front row of the arena.
This is Trump's first public visit to Oklahoma since September when he came to Oklahoma City.

As Trump moves on to Las Vegas Thursday, he left Oklahoma telling thousands that he is the right ticket in November

“We’re going to make our country great again. We're going to win, we're going to win, we're going to win,” he said.

Not all was smooth sailing for the media. Dozens of camera crews were booed several times during Trump's speech for turning cameras towards protestors in the audience.
