JONES BEACH - ? Donald Trump took a stand on the sand today at a rally in support of his long-delayed Trump on the Ocean project.

Supporters of Trump?s proposed Jones Beach catering hall held the rally.  Trump said the hall will help revitalize the beach and surrounding area. In addition, Trump says the hall would create more than 1,000 jobs.

As News 12 Long Island has previously reported, concerns over flooding and questions over the design have tied the project up in court.

A handful of protesters also rallied at Jones Beach today.  Community activist Pat Friedman says she wants the state attorney general to investigate how Trump got the contract to build in the first place.
