“Trump Is The Devil”: Los Angeles Investor Urges Protesters To Shut Down Streets, Block POTUS Motorcade
Donald Trump will arrive in California Tuesday, marking his first trip to the state as President. President Trump’s visit will include “a stop in San Diego to inspect eight sample designs for the wall,” followed by a fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Ross Gerber, the CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, is calling on protesters to block President Trump’s motorcade by shut dowing the streets of Los Angeles.
“Alright LA friends. It has come to my attention that Trump is coming to our hood this week. He will be in West LA Tuesday or Wednesday night for a fundraiser. We have to give him the welcome he deserves. Let’s shut down the streets. We must PROTEST!” Gerber tweeted Sunday.
Gerber then threatened to crash Trump’s West Los Angeles fundraiser.
“Trump will be in San Diego working on his wall and west LA getting money from scumbags. We will find out who is doing the fundraiser and we will be there. I bet Tom Barrack and his fraud company Colony are hosting. I’ll find out where he lives. Come join me,” Gerber tweeted.
LA Times reports:
President Trump will headline a high-dollar fundraiser for his reelection campaign when he visits California next week for the first time in his presidency, according to an invitation obtained by The Times.
Donors will contribute up to $250,000 each to Trump’s campaign and various Republican National Committee accounts to attend the Tuesday evening event at an undisclosed location in Beverly Hills. […]
The fundraiser is being hosted by Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, national finance chairman Todd Ricketts and deputy national finance chairman Elliott Broidy.
Independent journalist Mike Cernovich noted that “[s]topping a presidential motorcade is a crime.”
In response to Gerber’s “unhinged,” tweets, Security Studies Group president Jim Hanson pointed out “[s]topping his motorcade puts [Trump] at risk.”
“Someone should check on this guy,” Hanson suggested to the Secret Service’s Twitter account.

In a now-deleted tweet, Gerber threatened to boycott businesses that have anything to do with the fundraiser.
“Trump is the devil,” the investor claimed.
