Massive Protests Planned in Phoenix to Condemn Trump Agenda and Racist Rhetoric
At least ten anti-Trump resistance groups are expected to greet President Donald Trump Tuesday when he arrives in Phoenix, Arizona for a rally with his supporters there.
A variety of groups concerned with Trump’s response to this month’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, his immigration policies, and the broader White House agenda will hold marches and demonstrations ahead of and outside of Trump’s evening event at the Phoenix Convention Center.
Since his inauguration, Trump has held campaign-style rallies in several states he carried in 2016—uncommon for presidents in the first months of their terms. This will be his first rally since he shocked many across the country and around the world by insisting there were “very fine people” who attended the neo-Nazi rally on August 11 and 12 in Virginia where one counter-protester was killed by a suspected white supremacist.
Protesters are also planning to demonstrate against Trump’s possible pardon of Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County who was convicted last month of contempt of court, when he refused to obey a judge’s order to stop detaining suspected undocumented immigrants. Before being voted out of office last year Arpaio spent much of his tenure racially profiling Latinos and mistreating detainees according a Justice Department report.
