A group of University of Washington students showed their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by building a “Trump wall” on the school’s Red Square.
Two days after Donald Trump made his first campaign visit to Washington state, a group of University of Washington students erected a “Trump wall” on UW’s Red Square on Monday to show their support for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
About 10 Trump supporters, most of whom appeared to be UW students, erected the plywood wall at about 1 p.m. It was painted to resemble a brick wall, with the words “Trump Wall” painted over the bricks.
The crowd grew to more than 100 people, most of whom oppose Trump’s candidacy. Anti-Trump protesters waved signs saying “Stop Trump now” and “Immigrant lives matter,” and unveiled a long black banner that read: “Zero tolerance for walls or hate.” A man carrying a life-size cutout photo of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders wordlessly set it in front of the wall.
