A liberal who was in attendance at Trump’s rally in Tennessee was shocked at how nice he was treated by Trump supporters.
Samuel Donner initially attended Trump’s rally in Tennessee to interview Trump supporters but by the time he left he not only got some solid interviews but also made some friends too.
Donner was expecting the Trump supporters to be hostile to him but instead, he received nothing but kindness.
He was quoted saying “I was absolutely baffled that people wanted to talk and would actually be friends with me.”
Here are some clips of his interviews:
Fox News had more details to add:
A California man decided to reach across the political aisle and strike up a conversation with Trump supporters at a recent rally in Tennessee, with the goal of making 100 new friends.
“100New Friends” TikTok user Samuel Donner joined “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to share his story after the video of his experience went viral.
“Growing up in L.A., you think that these events are going to be like, very aggressive,” Donner told host Steve Doocy.
“I was absolutely baffled that people wanted to talk and would actually be friends with me.”
The viral video showed highlights from various conversations and interactions with Trump supporters, many of whom agreed to be friends and one in particular who invited Donner to join her Bible study.
Donner said in the video these interactions changed how he views America and challenged his prior notions about Trump supporters.
