ALLENDALE, Mich. (WOOD) — A few hundred people attended a rally for Donald Trump Jr., but not all of those attending were in for of his father’s candidacy.
The protesters let their voices be heard, but Trump went ahead and talked to the rest of the crowd about why he said his father’s presidency is for everybody.
“Listen, obviously it’s amazing, an honor and humbling experience to go around the country to see that hope in people’s eyes that you can actually effectuate real change. At the same time, I learned not to be against my father,” Trump told 24 Hour News 8 after a prior rally in East Lansing.
Wednesday’s visit to Michigan comes during a very dynamic political week in the state. The top of the Republican presidential ticket stumped in Walker Monday. Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Mike Pence will be in Michigan Thursday.
On the Democrats’ side, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be holding a rally in Detroit Friday.
An EPIC-MRA poll released Thursday showed 41 percent of voters would choose Clinton if the election was held immediately. Thirty-four percent said they would vote for Trump. That put Clinton’s lead well outside the poll’s plus or minus 4 percent margin of error. However, the poll was taken before the FBI announced it would be searching a new batch of emails that may be relevant to their investigation into Clinton.
