Trump’s rally in the Bronx draws big crowd of supporters, smaller group of vocal counterprotesters

Visitors came from across the street and across the country for presumed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rally at Crotona Park on May 23. As he spoke, a smaller but vocal crowd attended a nearby rally bearing the title “Trump is Not Welcome in the Bronx” — a juxtaposition that raised questions about how much ground Trump can gain in the reliably blue city. 

During Trump’s speech, he told the diverse crowd that he is a better representative for Black and Latinx people.
