President Trump is apparently sick of seeing anti-Trump rallies on the news, because he took to Twitter on Saturday morning to proclaim that his supporters could have the “biggest of them all” if they held a demonstration.
Industry pros, entertainers and civilians assembled by the hundreds on Friday afternoon for United Talent Agency’s “United Voices” rally outside the company’s Beverly Hills headquarters, and it seems POTUS is aware of the situation.
Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!

Among the featured speakers at the event protesting Trump administration immigration policies was Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who told the crowd that “it’s time to engage.”
“As the very, very dead Frederick Douglass one said, ‘Anytime is a good time for illumination,'” Foster said. “And this is the time for illumination. I believe this time is filled with light.”
Michael J. Fox, Keegan-Michael Key, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer and Reza Aslan also spoke at the anti-Trump rally.
Key said the event was set up to “support the creative community’s growing concern with anti-immigration sentiment in the United States of America and its potential chilling effect on the global exchange of ideas, not to mention freedom of expression.”
An estimated two thousand people attended the event, according to Beverly Hills PD.
