    President Donald Trump speaks at a rally Wednesday, March 15, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee.

    President Donald Trump riled up the crowd at his Nashville rally Wednesday evening, showing that at least one thing hasn't changed since the campaign, NBC News reported: attacking Hillary Clinton still brings his supporters together.

    Just before the rally, a federal judge in Hawaii blocked Trump's revised travel ban, which at the rally he called a "watered-down version" of his first executive order.

    Trump read from a legal code he claimed gave him authority to enact his travel ban, then pivoted to Clinton: "The law and Constitution give the president the power to suspend immigration when he deems - or she, or she. Fortunately, it will not be Hillary."

    That drew thunderous applause from the audience, followed by chants of "Lock her up."
