About him. Well it was quite a spectacle. All riding together quite loud well it looks like. Getting them the media attention here is it sounds like everyone out another. However another country. It will rule here visiting reasoning but we all come from doctor. I did not expect. Gone up where they for the cameras there somebody that's been translators on time. My half Milwaukee.

Higher. We bikers and truckers for trump. I'm as he said they all mad at the Harley-Davidson. Shoppers are meeting point here. But came from all over the country. Imminent turnaround too there's the man. That's been here early I got here about 9 o'clock and he was parties. Sometime in the hands. Is letting people of the pose with his rightful. So easy in here Ohio is an open carry state. You can have your license bring your. Got out in the open dozens of concealed carry. Nothing wrong when what he's doing here. CB napkins and many saw the pictures back. Just clothing. And the man holding. The hat now is July 3 and isn't a question I'm with anything and. Camera around eye sight and out here sent about 9 o'clock this morning at least 9 o'clock I got here. Larry that I was correct that lot of dedication here obviously.

Is there for four days when the Florida for another. I can back this venue and then came to Wisconsin. Did the heavy on the pay sounds like yeah. A lot of work for the men and you know. I'm probably number two in the nation as a volunteer there's another irony here. By name and mark. Expenses that you see him around probably amount to affect me he's got over forty she Victoria street thousand dollars to 43000. Well how much should you do you know roughly like how much you spent on all around one voluntary thousand miles on coming out we're right now. It's it doesn't dedication seeing us he really excited to be here where you from Pennsylvania like entrance. And I think insurgency. Don't win this we need to do someday you know and yet I'm convinced a lot of independents. Democrats and Republicans. Do things one is due to soft drugs second thing as balance a checkbook and stop the corruption. We'll take a country do those things. And a lot of people out and that mr. trump could get to this points. What do you have to say now it feel good. I've got a lot of resistance even my family and I got on board. Junior sixty the 2015. And been within ever since you know and there's still people because it. They don't like triumphantly as things about topics on her man when I look at her pastor.

Crisscrossed the country spent thousands of its own dollars. To help get mr. trump to the point that he's out now so fee. Like experts from are still holding courts all around here but we're gonna walk up to with the main part of the rally. Which is. In the park just upstairs. Neighbors packed and it's. To recap if you're just joining this the Aaron Cooper's unity rally and wrote Donald Trump rally going on in Cleveland. We're just hours away from the Republican National Convention kicking off at 1 o'clock eastern time here in Cleveland. And it's about a fifteen minute walk. Down to the Q the Quicken Loans Arena. Or the Q that's known locally. And but it's it's a little longer drive the security is. Quite intense down Aaron this is the first day that the delegates will be coming down entering the arena as well. And then there's you know thousands and thousands. Of members of the media as well coming down to the Q and areas the Secret Service is set up a perimeter. It traffic. Crazy down there. Hats then. All weekend and it's sure did get even works.

That business has been well over the weekend because people have been waiting in the area now right downtown. There's a lot of people. But it's just outside the immediate area where the media and Elliott neverland aren't hanging out to work.
