“We want Trump”
A thousand patriots seek justice. 65 million more across the country.

The crowd chanted, “four more years” and “we love Trump,” as the presidential race remains undecided in Arizona and the ballot count continues.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene due to reports of armed protesters. Various media outlets claimed the event had turned violent, however there is no truth to those reports.
