Early in the Town Hall discussion with Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, Trump protesters (I believe 7) three rows directly in front of us stood up and ripped open their shirts with protest writing on the t-shirts. They were quickly removed from Monroe auditorium. The interruption lasted a little over a minute and was met with USA chants. The seats were quickly replaced by some of the at least 4,000 people who stood outside hoping to find a seat. There were two more interruptions during the event, but it was obvious that security was very much on top of the situation and the subsequent folks were removed even quicker than the previous and the seats were replaced. The event was quite the spectacle. This could not be identified as a normal political event. The Trump supporters were jacked up to the max.
The event lasted around an hour and then Mr. Trump left quickly, headed to the airport to his jet and was out of here. It was obvious that Trump hit home on incompetent politicians, bad trade deals, the negative impact that those deals have had on the area, and that those issues must be addressed if were are to turn around the area. Trump gave the people what they wanted to see. As time permits I will relate more of the happenings of this event to you. I will say it was very professionally run and police and security were very much on top of the situation and did an excellent job with disturbances.
