Protests planned for Trump’s Evansville rally this week

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Police officials in Evansville are preparing for possibly thousands of protesters to arrive in the southwestern Indiana city for President Donald Trump’s campaign rally there this week.

While managers of the Ford Center are anticipating possibly filling 11,000 seats inside the arena for Trump’s Thursday rally, the organizers of two anti-Trump protests are looking to draw at least a few thousand people.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports local and state police met Friday with U.S. Secret Service officials and other public safety agencies on security plans for Trump’s visit.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding says officers will closely monitor crowds outside the downtown arena for trouble.

County Democratic Chairman Scott Danks says he wants a civil protest but that protesters want to be seen and heard.

Here we go again…The story has to be about the few protesters (probably paid for protesters by the DNC) and not about the many thousands that will attend in support of Trump. News isn’t news at all. It is just a biased slanted story for releasing very selective information to further an agenda. 95% of Google search results on Trump show negative propaganda and not the most hit websites because they are not against Trump. Sounds like North Korea…When will it stop? When we take our country back from the elitist liberal socialists we call democrats in this country it will stop.

A few thousand protestors? BS. Not a chance. Not even 100, I’ll bet. Of course the media will see a dozen and call it a hundred so…
