A Pro-Trump Grassroots Demonstration rocked the city of Flint on Saturday, February 17th. A group of individuals associated with the Genesee County Republican Party entered the democratic stronghold to show that some citizens of the city are in fact in support of President Trump’s wall and his agenda. The community’s response was absolutely unbelievable. With their “Honk for the Wall” signs on display, there was a never-ending laying of horns on Corunna Road, one of the most popular roadways in the city of Flint. In fact, some pro-Trump drivers decided to stop and join the demonstrators. Obviously, there was an occasional negative reply with one vehicle physically assaulting former State Senator David B. Robertson by throwing a water bottle at him.
All in all, this is proof that Republicans across the state must understand that there is potential in cities like Flint, Pontiac, and Port Huron in 2020. President Trump is the perfect candidate to target and acquire the votes of these mostly blue-collar communities across the state of Michigan. His America-First agenda has helped working-class families the most. Whether it be a tax cut of $2000 for an average American or more than 300,000 manufacturing jobs created during his presidency. If President Trump’s promises are continued to be kept, it will be increasingly difficult for Democrats to win, especially if democratic strongholds like Flint are continually targeted by county Republican parties across the state.
