Except for the fact that almost everyone who showed up were the usual Donald Trump supporters.
Trump rally in North Charleston baffles black entrepreneurs
What was billed as an opportunity for Donald Trump to connect with minority voters at a gathering of black entrepreneurs Wednesday in North Charleston, instead left many in the audience baffled to be attending a campaign rally for the Republican presidential front-runner.
“I was kind of confused, I don’t know what I just sat through,” said John Gethers, of Walterboro, a member of the S.C. African-American Chamber of Commerce which co-hosted the event at the Charleston Area Convention Center.
The crowd of around 450 was predominantly white, and most appeared to be diehard Trump supporters, cheering loudly for the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star, waving signs and wearing baseball caps emblazoned with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
