Trump Supporters Rally For The President Across Country

| by Ray Brown

President Donald Trump might be under constant criticism from the mainstream media, but he did win the 2016 presidential election -- and his fans aren't afraid to come out and show their support.

"They aren't giving him a chance," Indianapolis organizer Patty Collins, 61, said of Trump's critics, according to Indy Star. "We are here to show support for the president of the United States."

Around the country, supporters of the president gathered in different cities to counter what they see as an organized effort to discredit the president and undermine the man they voted for during the 2016 presidential election.

"We are no longer the silent majority. We are not going to be silent no more," Joy Villa told a crowd in Washington, D.C., according to the Boston Herald. "We are not going to be bullied. We are not going to be spit on."

At another rally in New York City, hundreds of Trump supporters gathered in New York near the president's private residence -- Trump Tower -- and chanted "U-S-A."

One Trump supporter held a sign that denounced his Democratic Party membership.

"I am not a Democrat anymore," the sign read.

Another sign said, "Yes he is our president."

In Berkeley, California, demonstrations got violent as anti-Trump protesters clashed with pro-Trump supporters, each side blaming the other for the brutalities that occurred.

"It's weird to see the [Trump] supporters in my city and my town," Kiki Valenzuela, a 16-year-old anti-Trump protester, told the San Francisco Gate. "It's the first time for me, and it's kind of scary and dangerous."

David Tomes, a pro-Trump protester, said he was disappointed by the clash between people of different political opinions in one of America's most liberal cities.

"This is the most immature and disgusting display of human interaction," he said.

Tomes, 49, said he owns a yoga studio and has been harassed for his political beliefs, according to the San Francisco Gate.

According to the Marin Independent News Journal, 10 people were arrested at the Berkeley rally.

"It's nice to be surrounded by people who share your morals and opinions," said Chelsea Thomas, a Trump supporter.

"Some anti-Trump protesters are throwing things at Trump supporters, apparently trying to provoke [the] other side," reported East Bay Times in a live blog of the events. "Berkeley police are making occasional forays into the crowd, but mostly holding back."
