Demonstrators Gather For President Donald Trump's Visit To Yuma
President Donald Trump visited Yuma this Tuesday ahead of a big event in Phoenix.
KAWC's Stephanie Sanchez reports people gathered in 108 degree heat to get a glimpse of the president.
Spectators lined up along a half mile stretch of road outside Marine Corps Air Station-Yuma as President Donald Trump’s plane arrived.
Many people were there to protest the president including his plan to build a border wall.
42-year old Aisha Glenn was among the Trump supporters.
Glenn said she is happy with the president’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
"That's to tell you I love him," Glenn said. "And for him you see I come here suffering the heat, just to wave at him. Anyway to see him and to tell you know what I like you. "
This is the first presidential visit to Yuma since President George W. Bush in 2006.
Trump never left the base but did take a tour and visited a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility.
