Trump’s visit to Greenville also is drawing some protests, according to social media reports.
“Lucinda Rogers of Travelers Rest came with IndivisibleSC4 to protest @IvankaTrump speaking to ‘select local women.’ “Why don’t I get to talk to her?” @GreenvilleNews,” tweeted Anna Mitchell of the Greenville News.
The Greenville News’ Mitchell also filmed a heated exchange between a Trump supporter and a clergyman.
“Archbishop Edmund Cass of the Progressive Catholic Church exchanges words with Trump supporter Sherry Riddle outside @IvankaTrump’s event in downtown Greenville,” Mitchell tweeted.
Trump and Scott have company.
“(U.S.) Sen. Lindsey Graham, Congressman Trey Gowdy, SC First Lady Peggy McMaster, state lawmakers and others are here for the Women in Leadership event with Sen. Tim Scott and Ivanka Trump. The two will talk about the tax reform bill at 12:30p,” tweeted Gavin Jackson, with S.C. ETV.
