President Trump is scheduled to speak in Winston-Salem, NC at Smith-Reynolds Regional Airport tonight as part of his campaign tour. Attendees were permitted to enter a couple of hours before the President speaks at 7pm EST. A supporter snapped a picture of a new sign that the Trump campaign was distributing and shared it on social media.

This hilarious sign mocks the phrase that city officials have used to excuse the mass looting and rioting across the country. Unlike the President’s rallies, at which people can be seen cheering in support of Trump’s successes in his Presidency and the hope for another four more years.
President Trump challenged said phrase in an exchange with a reporter during a press conference at his Golf Club in New Jersey, as previously reported by 100%FedUp.
President Trump addressed the media tonight at his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey.
During his press conference, he blasted Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler for allowing the radical left to take over the city….President Trump cited the violence in New York, where there’s a 348% increase in violence. Trump called it, “so sad,” adding it’s a “horrible, horrible” situation, blaming, “incompetent management by politicians that truly don’t know what they’re doing.”
Trump offered to take questions from the media, and that’s when things got interesting.
REPORTER: "Just in this room, you have dozens of people who are not following the guidelines…"

A reporter was called on by President Trump. Instead of asking a question about policy, the reporter called out his fellow reporters for not wearing face coverings, as mandated by the state of New Jersey.
President Trump, who is a master of trolling his enemies (the media), quickly responded that the media is exempt from wearing masks because they are part of “a peaceful protest!” Members of the golf club erupted in applause. Trump continued, adding, “You know, you have an exclusion in the law… it says peaceful protests, or political activity,” he said, looking down as if he was reading the law the way it was written.
