Trump supporters have already congregated in McAllen, close to the airport President Trump is scheduled to land later this afternoon. From here, he will drive to Alamo.

I’ll be on the field today, covering the local supporters & protesters showing up for the president’s visit.
This will be Trump’s first public appearance after the deadly insurrection at the Capitol last week. McAllen native Stephanie Seiba, who let me know she is the daughter of immigrants, does not believe it should be called an insurrection. #RGV @monitornews
This man took the opportunity to crack a joke as a UPS truck passed by. I’d say about 150 people are here, and around half are wearing masks. @monitornews #RGV
In the middle of a bunch of Trump supporters, Marsha Lee Martinez is here with a Biden sign.
A woman who has been singing worship songs throughout the morning pulled out her shofar.
“May God give you peace, Biden supporters.” @monitornews #RGV
A debate has fired up between Marsha, a Biden supporter, and Ryan, a Trump supporter.
Here’s more of the debate.
Victoria Oates, a McAllen native, is here to show her support for President Trump today with her daughters.
Michelle Lamarie, who is part of the Cameron County Conservatives group, has been leading chants today with her bullhorn. Here’s why she supports Trump:

President Trump has landed in McAllen. Shouts of “God bless Trump,” and “One more week,” are in the air. @monitornews #RGV
President Trump is on his way to the city of Alamo, he waved at his supporters here. @monitornews #RGV
This man harassed a reporter for being “fake news,” but stopped when she told him she works for Fox News.
