Donald Trump holds rally in uptown Friday

Donald Trump's campaign made a stop in Charlotte Friday as the Republican nominee defended himself against inappropriate sexual allegations.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WCNC) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a rally with supporters Friday night in uptown Charlotte.

Over 1,000 people showed up at the Charlotte Convention Center to hear the Republican nominee for president speak just weeks before the election. 

They watched as Trump complained about the teleprompters not working before dismantling them.

"I actually like my speeches better without the teleprompters," he said.

Despite not actually reading from one, he stuck to a similar script including slamming his opponent Hillary Clinton.

"It's one more reason why we need a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton," he said.

He also criticized the women who have accused him of inappropriate sexual conduct.

"These allegations are 100-percent false as I think you know," Trump said.

A few protesters tried to interrupt his speech, but he quickly ordered them out.

"When you look back and we all had a good time, even though your speakers were no good, your teleprompters were no good, as long as Trump was good, that's all that matters," he proclaimed.

He announced he plans to visit the state again leading up to the election.
