Trump supporters have waited in long lines all day long to get into the President’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona Tuesday evening – some since early morning.
Local media is reporting that there have been “a few minor scuffles” between supporters and protesters, but heavy security has kept the groups apart, with Trump supporters on one side of the street, and protesters on the other side.
Over 10,000 are expected to attend the rally at the Phoenix Convention Center, according to local media – despite CNN’s headline saying, “hundreds brave heat to line up early for Trump rally.”
There are also reports of over 2,000 protesters outside the event, but the protests and demonstrations have reportedly remained civil. Anti-Trump activists have been shouting “Lock him up!” and “Black lives matter!” while Trump supporters chanted back, “Build the wall!”
