This just in: Americans With Differing Viewpoints Calmly Discuss Policy at Republican National Convention.
Amid fears of violence at this week’s RNC, pop-up debates have emerged all over Cleveland, epitomized in the above video of a group of anti-Trump demonstrators gang-debating a lone Trump supporter on Tuesday — with remarkably civil results.
TheWrap was at the scene when the group began discussing the term “white supremacy,” which is always a good icebreaker.
An anti-Trump protester then asked the supporter if he agreed with white supremacist doctrine. But when the supporter instead responded by saying he was trying to have a discussion with someone else, the protester claimed he was dodging the question.
“I’m not trying to avoid the question. I’m saying you’re using a slur to shut down discussion,” the Trump supporter said.
Hm, good point.
Another anti-Trump protester proceeded to ask the Trump supporter about his stance on the GOP presidential nominee’s proposed ban on Muslims from entering the U.S.
“I think as Trump has stated it, it’s a pretty good idea,” the supporter said.
“How are you going to implement that? Are you just going to ask people, ‘Are you Muslim?'” the anti-Trump protester responded. “Trump has not given any specifics on anything.”
Hm, another good point.
“He said it’s a temporary freeze on immigration from countries that have a history of terrorism,” the supporter said.
Watch the video above.
