MILWAUKEE- President Trump visited Milwaukee yesterday for a fundraiser with Governor Scott Walker. The President, after being greeted by a group of hand-picked supporters, gave a speech on healthcare and visited Waukesha County Technical College. After his visit to WCTC, he went to downtown Milwaukee for his fundraiser with Walker, where he was met with a crowd of protesters.
The protesters, whose ranks included Milwaukee County Supervisor Marceila Nicholson, expressed that both Walker and Trump are out of touch with regular Americans. Walker’s fundraiser had a price tag of $1,000 for attendees, with a $10,000 cost for those who wanted to take a picture with Trump. Costs like this, protesters said, highlight that both Walker and Trump are serving the rich, and not working-class Wisconsinites.

Demonstrators gathered Tuesday, June 13th in Milwaukee to protest a visit by President Donald Trump, who joined Governor Scott Walker for a fundraiser in Milwaukee Tuesday evening.
Ahead of that fundraiser, President Trump spoke at Mitchell Airport about health care, and visited Waukesha County Technical College, where he led a roundtable discussion on workforce development.
At the airport, a small group of hand-selected gusts were thrilled to have the opportunity to get an up-close experience with the commander-in-chief. . .
In downtown Milwaukee, a less enthusiastic crowd greeted him. Protesters gathered with large puppets in tow.
“We have people working two and three jobs to make ends meet. Low-wage Walker, he’s snatching food literally out of peoples’ mouths,” Marcelia Nicholson, Milwaukee County supervisor said. “We’re here today to show Walker, to show Trump working people fuel this state, and together we’re going to to elect a governor that puts working people first.”
