Donald Trump is heading to Mexico today to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto. The announcement came down last night while I was in Everett, Washington at the Trump rally.
And what an exciting high energy rally it was. I really wasn’t sure what to expect to see at a Trump rally in western Washington. The state hasn’t gone Republican since Ronald Reagan was re-elected in 1984.
I arrived in Everett seven hours before the event was scheduled to begin and there was already a line-up around the block.
I asked Trump supporters how they feel about the mainstream media portrayal of their candidate, their thoughts about Hillary Clinton, and Trump’s pledge to reform the Veterans Administration.
When I was interviewing rally goers, I saw none of the dozens of mainstream media outlets come talk to the crowd. They spent most of their time hanging around their satellite trucks rather than getting a sense of what the people there were motivated by.
As you’ll see, the crowd at this rally were pretty diverse, even though Everett is a fairly white, blue collar town.
The demographics were quite a contrast from the anti-oil pipeline protests I’ve attended, that’s for sure…
