Trump

Ahead of the Rally in Elkhart tonight, supporters of President Donald Trump are lined up outside the Northside Gym, waiting for the doors to open.

Supporters from as far away as Florida and California wait in line, decked out in Trump gear. At the rally tonight the president is expected to talk about his tax plan and support local Republican candidates.

The rally starts at seven, but Bruce Spratling has been here since 9 a.m.. He’s from Florida but winters in Michigan. He’s got a Trump flag draped around his shoulder and a sign that says ‘stop H-1B visas.’

Retired union leader Chuck Jones believes President Donald Trump has not kept his promises to Hoosier workers. Jones’s statements come ahead of the president’s Thursday visit to Elkhart, a city that depends heavily on manufacturing jobs. 

According to Jones, Indiana residents don’t have to look further than the lost jobs at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis to see the President’s impact on Hoosier jobs.

While Jones said he appreciated the president making jobs a central campaign issue, he argues not much more has been done for workers since.
