Outside the high school, a small group of protesters, about half of which were school-age children, waved anti-Trump signs with slogans ranging from "Trump is Mean!" to "Trump is a Fascist!" to "[expletive] Donald Trump!"
There was, as Trump would say, a "tremendous" line to enter the rally. There must have been thousands of Trump supporters who were turned away from the rally because of how long the line stretched, and because of the small capacity of the venue.

Trump's obviously unscripted speech covered issues such as illegal immigration, terrorism, the economy, and trade. Trump also lashed out at corrupt Virginia Governor Terry McAullife, and the crowd (including myself) responded with boos and shouts of "Impeach him!" and "Lock him up!"
A large proportion of Trump supporters who came to the rally were kids of various ages, many of which had creative signs and buttons. This individual who prefers to remain anonymous allowed me to take his picture for ResistanceMedia.org.
Other Trump supporters carried "Hillary for Prison" signs, which were distributed outside the rally to Trump supporters who were waiting to enter.
We are definitely looking forward to any future Trump campaign stops in Northern Virginia!
