Vendors who traveled from across the country for last week’s Trump rally have decided to stick around in the borderland after reciving a surprising amount of support from the community.
Many have been living off of donations and profits from merchandise sales, and say El Paso has been nothing but great to them.
“When we got the news we were in Florida, and when we heard Trump was going to be here we made the trip here and the reason why we’re still here is all the support, a lot of security, police officers and more coming and supporting us and buying merchandise,” said Rocky Gratana.
They’ve been living off of donations and say they’ve dedicated thier lives to supporting Trump around the country.
“We sold our house to do this…we need all donations, anybody that comes by donate and get a hat,” says Tina Mann.
The vendors don’t plan on leaving the borderland anytime soon and hope they gain more support from the community.
“We need more people, the Trump train is on the move, come and join us with your RV and become a trumper,” the vendors say.
