No Issues During Trump’s S.A. Visit

No major hitches to report during Donald Trump’s visit to the Alamo City.

The San Antonio Police Department said no arrests were made–with the crowds gathered outside the Oak Hills Country Club peaking at no more than 450 people.

“Letting people exercise their first amendment rights is key to making these events successful” SAPD Chief William McManus told KTSA News as he watched the crowds of protesters and supporters along Fredricksburg Road.

“If you try to prevent people from exercising their First Amendment rights–that’s often times where it gets ugly” the Chief added.

There were plenty of people on both sides who raised their voices during Trump’s San Antonio fundraiser.

“I’m anti-racism, anti-hated, anti-everything Trump stands for” one man told us.

Another encouraged Trump opponents to stay peaceful, but “to let him know we don’t want him to be our President.”

On the other side of the street though, Trump would have found plenty of support.

“I think that he can go in, bust up a lot of corruptness, and get some things straight” one woman told KTSA News.

Another man was less enthused–but told us “I support the Republican Nominee–because I’m sure as hell not going to vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Then there was one woman who showed up–without really choosing aside.

“I don’t really support anybody at the moment… I’m just here” she told KTSA News.
