Donald Trump Makes Appearance at Outdoor Sportsman Awards


GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump arrived on stage at the 16th annual Outdoor Sportsman Awards during the 2016 SHOT Show.

At the 16th Annual Outdoor Sportsman Awards Powered by RAM, a star-studded evening was capped with an appearance by Donald Trump, Republican party presidential frontrunner and business magnate.

A joined effort by Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel, part of Outdoor Sportsman Group – Networks, the Outdoor Sportsman Awards honors the best that outdoor television has to offer.

Though the spotlight may have been stolen by Trump, who appeared as a guest and spoke to the crowd and live streaming audience.

This video from KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas has some of his comments while at the show.

In addition to that surprise appearance, there were performances by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty, former lead singer for Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Kristy Lee Cook, former American Idol finalist and co-star of Sportsman Channel’s The Most Wanted List.
