CINCINNATI – While local supporters of Donald Trump looked forward to his town hall meeting in West Chester Sunday, some anti-Trump activists spent Saturday preparing to protest the event.

“I think it's very important that, given the hateful rhetoric that Trump is spreading in this country, that every person who disagrees with what he is saying has a duty to say he ‘doesn't stand for us,’” Lacey Brewster said.

Robert Shields said they hoped to make a more impactful message than a man who was arrested after he charged toward the stage Trump was on at a rally in Dayton Saturday.

“I think it's important, when we're standing up to his hateful message, that we're responding to it with things that are of love,” Shields said.
