Far Left Hillary Supporting Groups Organized Hecklers at Donald Trump’s Detroit Speech
FAR LEFT GROUPS ORGANIZED DISRUPTIONS AT TRUMP’S DETROIT ECONOMIC SPEECH
On Monday 14 different far left protesters interrupted and started screaming in intervals during Donald Trump’s economic policy speech in Detroit, Michigan.
Trump ignored most of the protesters.
But at one point he mocked them in typical Trump style.
The local FOX 2 Channel in Detroit caught up with one of the protesters who told them the entire protest was planned by Michigan People’s Campaign.
FOX 2 Detroit reported:
Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has had to deal with protestors both outside his appearances and inside. His trip to the Detroit Economic Club was no different.
On Monday 14 separate times his speech was interrupted by an organized effort to throw Trump off his game.
“I made eye contact with Donald Trump,” said Jacquie Maxwell. “I looked dead at him.”
Jacquie Maxwell works for an auto part supplier in Dearborn and has never done anything like this before.
“Nauseating is probably the best word to describe it,” she said.
She described the moments leading up to her rather one-sided interaction with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. She yelled and he continued with his planned speech.
“It was very uncomfortable,” Maxwell said. “You are in a setting with people who are not like minded as you.”
But she put her personal comfort aside when her fellow union members came calling.
“He asked me if I would be willing to participate in a Trump rally,” she said.
Maxwell agreed to be one of 14 or so protestors to disrupt his speech at a ticketed event in Cobo Center.
“I did not know them at all,” she said. “We were brought together as a group with a like cause and asked to do this by different community groups by non-partisan groups.”
They were all brought together by a group called “Michigan People’s Campaign” billed as a statewide organization building a movement to put people and the planet before profits.
“I’m a worker a middle class union worker, I go to work every day,” Maxwell said.
She got her ticket to the Detroit Economic Club luncheon through an anonymous e-mail and was only told to speak her mind. Then one by one they deployed the disruption.
“It’s all very well planned out,” Trump said during one of the interruptions.
“He actually acknowledged we were a well-organized protest,” Maxwell said. “We tried to time it every two or two and a half minutes.”
But reactions from the Republican nominee were mild and controlled by the crowd’s standard.
“He was poised,” said Robert Dempster. “And I liked when the people who were protesting he calmly relaxed and acted like a true pro.”
