Trump Supporters and Victims of Socialism Protest Democrat Debate In Miami
The Democrat Debate was held in South Florida on Wednesday night. This is the first of two presidential primary debates. Bill de Blasio, Tim Ryan, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, John Delaney, and Jay Inslee took the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.
Before and during the debate, several hundred Trump supporters protested against socialism outside on the sidewalk. Most to them had signs that read “Democrats for Trump #WalkAway” and “Socialism Sucks” and many sported their red MAGA hats.
Tons of support for @realDonaldTrump outside the #DemDebate in Miami. Lots of people with personal experience with totalitarian regimes don’t want government control over every aspect of their lives. Government-run EVERYTHING is what we’ll hear about on stage tonight. pic.twitter.com/kvNdwVrC7t— Tim Murtaugh (@TimMurtaugh) June 26, 2019
Cubans with personal experiences of socialism expressed their opinions of the Democratic party. They know firsthand what socialism does.
