At least 1,000 Trump supporters showed up to protest Biden’s visit to McHenry County, Illinois while asserting his socialist agenda is not welcome in their state. Only 25 people showed up to support Biden.
Republican protesters said Biden’s is advancing hyper-partisan policies that are ultimately paid for by U.S. taxpayers. They went on to suggest Biden lacks popular support in Illinois except for the Democrat-controlled city of Chicago.
