JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Thousands of residents are expected to attend the Donald Trump rally at the Veteran's Memorial Arena Wednesday night.

Many eager supporters waited hours in line to secure their place inside the area. The arena can hold 15,000 people, however the Jacksonville Fire Marshal says as of right now less 10,300 will be allowed in.

The Fire Marshal's office said this is because that's what the Trump campaign purchased.

Near the arena, several variations of Donald Trump shirts were for sale.

First Coast News spoke with several supporters out in the line and many of them said they were supporting Donald Trump because he can make a change.

Not everyone out in front of the Veterans Memorial Arena were Trump supporters, some were still undecided and came with an open mind.

When the doors opened at 4 p.m. there were only two people protesting against Trump. The 14-year-old we spoke with said he could not support the Presidential hopeful.

"There is no excuse whatsoever to make fun of the mother of a Gold Star family when she wasn't talking."
