El Paso Trump supporters and protestors show off gear


President Donald Trump’s campaign visit to El Paso is just days away as supporters and protestors are getting ready with their favorite gear.

Trump supporters told KTSM they’ll be sporting their Make America Great Again hats.

Opponents said they’ll be wearing different shirts including a t-shirt that’s become popular almost overnight. It’s designed by local artist Patrick Gabaldon. The t-shirt features El Paso’s Congresswoman Veronica Escobar. In the illustration Escobar is holding a mega phone and it has a Spanish slur for “you’ve got to be kidding.”

Proper Printshop is making the t-shirts. A shop manager said they are excited to be part of making people’s voice heard.

“It’s really awesome to see our business be a part of everything that is going on with El Paso. It’s awesome to see people feel so strongly about everything that they feel right now. Just the political climate and where it’s at,” said Monica Charter with Proper Printshop.

With so many requests, only Saturday February 9, the print shop will be open from 12PM to 5PM for custom printing no matter what side your on.
