Resistance to Trump At Phoenix Rally

U.S. President Donald Trump has held a political rally in Phoenix, Arizona, his first since the white-supremacist gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia turned into a riot. Many were concerned Trump would use the opportunity to further empower alt-right groups, so they turned up to show their opposition.
