PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Donald Trump’s rally on Wednesday drew thousands to the David Lawrence Convention Center _ as well as hundreds of protesters who gathered outside the venue, chanting and waving signs.
Inside, Trump pumped up the hometown crowd.
“I know a lot about Pennsylvania, and it’s great,” said Trump, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

Trump was showing off his knowledge of all things Pennsylvania when he asked a baffling question _ about Penn State’s famed football coach.
“How’s Joe Paterno?” Trump asked supporters. “Are we gonna bring that back? Right? … How about that whole deal?”
Paterno died in January 2012 just months after being dismissed following a child sex abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky, his former assistant coach.
A campaign spokeswoman later confirmed that the GOP presidential front-runner wasn’t talking about Paterno himself but about his statue, which was removed from outside the football stadium four years ago, angering students and many alumni.
