I went to the Trump rally in Roanoke Saturday night.Black profits matter? Good for them.
I was curious to get the sense and size of the crowd. There are 10,600 seats available in the Bergland Center (where the event was held). It was less than half full.
It was a standard Trump stump speech. Nothing particularly noteworthy. Trump does want a bigger, more powerful government.
There were a lot of vendors outside the center. I found it interesting that a lot of the vendors were black and making money off of the Trump event.
The crowd was solidly white, a handful of Blacks, and some Asians.
