Donald Trump visited Arizona on Saturday, making stops in Tucson and Fountain Hills. His stops were jam packed with both supporters and protesters.
Trump was full of promises to build a wall and to end bad trade deals. Arizona’s presidential primary is on Tuesday.
FOUNTAIN HILLS: Trump protesters were blocking vehicles leading into Fountain Hills in advance of Donald Trump’s campaign stop Saturday morning. Three protesters were arrested, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.
“We had a little problem,” Arpaio told the crowd gathered in Fountain Hills. “Demonstrators were trying to disrupt.Three of them are in jail. If they think they’re going to intimidate you the next president of the U.S., it’s not going to happen.”
TUCSON: Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who also endorsed Trump, also spoke at the Tucson rally, saying, “We have a president that has failed the American people and it’s time for a change.” “We’re going to propel Donald Trump to that seat,” she added, referencing Arizona voters ahead of the state’s GOP primary on Tuesday.
There were numerous confrontations between protesters and supporters, which comes as no surprise as the city of Tucson has been hampered by illegal immigration for decades. In one case a Trump supporter got into a physical confrontation with a rowdy protester.
