On Thursday evening, some less-than-fully-enlightened students at Portland State University (PSU) decided to hold the inaugural meeting of “Students for Trump.” They drew a sparse crowd, but thanks to some anti-Trump protesters who showed up, they didn’t get much accomplished.
The “Students for Trump” had advertised the meeting as one for “planning,” but as the Vanuguard, PSU’s student newspaper reported, planning was replaced by confrontation. The Vanguard’s Colleen Leary wrote this about the incident:
‘After and an hour and a half, most of the Trump supporters had left the original meeting table and moved to several heated discussions off to the side of the cafeteria. Protestors followed the Trump supporters back and forth across the cafeteria for about two hours.
‘One anti-Trump student tried to shake hands with a man wearing a Make America Great Again hat. He refused and said “No, I can’t. We’re enemies.” He gestured using air quotes on the word enemies.’
It was later revealed that the protesters were led by PSU student activists Olivia Pace and Alyssa Pagan. Pace and Pagan are members of a student group that has also disrupted the PSU’s Board of Trustees meetings on three consecutive occasions.
‘Are you asking if I still support Trump? More so.’
