Donald Trump Jr fires up Neshoba fairgoers

Trump stated, “This is not a campaign anymore. This is a movement.” “You have proved that today in Mississippi. Wow. Trump spoke for approximately five minutes. He referred to his father’s position and expressed gratitude for Mississippi’s support. Donald J. Trump was elected the Republican nominee for the Mississippi presidential primary earlier in this year. He even made a comment about being on the same stage that Ronald Reagan launched his 1980 presidential campaign from at the Neshoba Country Fair. Many fairgoers were dressed in “Trump/Pence” apparel, with massive Trump signs and banners hanging from balconies. Some even wore Trump capes and masks. A sign reading “Trump Tower” was found in a cabin just behind Trump’s stage. Fred Poole, a 68-year-old Meridian resident, wore a Trump T shirt. He said, “I drove here to see Trump.” “I have seen many political candidates at this fair over the years including Reagan. Trump arrived at the fairgrounds at 3:00 p.m. He stopped at several cabins and spoke with Gov. Before heading to Grandstand, Phil Bryant and U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper for a speech at 4 p.m. A few thousand Trump supporters were there, initiating “Trump!” Trump! Trump!” and “USA!” chants were heard, as patriotic songs were blared from loudspeakers. Trump stated, “Many people have claimed that my father is an unlikely voice to the people.” He’s speaking for you. He is giving voice to those who made this country great.” But the fairgrounds were not purely a Trump festival. One cabin had a pro-Hillary Clinton sign, though it was just a few doors away from the “Hillary for Prison” sign. Kelli Nichols, Fairgoer, said that people from opposing political parties are polite with one another. It’s just like any other South value. We take our sports very seriously. Nichols stated that we take our religion and our politics seriously. To support this important work, you can make a regular donation to the Spring Member Drive today.
