In response to the tens of thousands protesters across the nation who continue to voice their opinion on policies put forth by the president-elect, a group of Donald Trump supporters met at his Walk of Fame star to gloss over the discontent with a message of unity.

The event, organized by the L.A. and Orange County Chapters of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., drew a diverse group of peaceful demonstrators who said it is a time for unity, healing and a message of love.

“Give the guy a chance,” attendee Sean Kneeland said. “You had eight years, nothing’s really gotten any better, why don’t you give this guy a chance?”

Most there, like Sharon Evans, felt it was time to forgive and forget the rhetoric of Trump’s campaign.

“We need to pull together as a nation,” Evans said. “We don’t get anything done, we don’t hear each other talking when it’s just anger and hurt feelings.”

But those at the anti-Trump rally downtown spoke up in defense of social progress made in the last eight years, such as recognition of transgender people, that a Trump administration threatens to dismantle.

“We want a united country that stands against homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia,” anti-Trump protestor Jamie Holt told KTLA.
