People are resisting the divide and conquer propaganda and this video of Black Lives Matter and Trump supporters coming together shows how to do it.
Over the weekend, in Washington, hundreds of Trump supporters gathered for the Mother of All Rallies event to praise their leader in the white house. Naturally, there were some folks there to counter-protest — nine Black Lives Matter activists to be exact.
