Some of talk radio’s most well-known and ardent Trump lovers will top the bill at the annual Inland Empire conservative gathering Sunday, but they’ll be met by outraged anti-Trump protesters.
Also on stage will be a representative of the Breitbart web site, a target for anti-Trump feeling since Breitbard exec Steve Bannon joined the Trump Administration.
More than 600 people are expected to attend the conference — and a similar number could assemble on the sidewalks outside to express their dissatisfaction with the president and his policies.
While all things Trump will be celebrated inside at the Riverside Convention Center, all things anti-Trump will be demonstrated by sign-waving protesters.
The panel of high-profile conservatives is slated to talk about the Trump presidency on Sunday at a downtown Riverside venue where anti-Trump protesters are also expected to gather.
The fourth annual Unite IE Conservative Conference is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Riverside Convention Center and will feature analysis by broadcasters Larry Elder, Hugh Hewitt and Dennis Prager, as well as Breitbart scribe Joel Pollak.
The event will examine the highs and lows of Donald Trump’s administration in its first 100 days and what may be in store, according to Unite IE spokesman John Berry.
Berry said Riverside police advised conference organizers last week that several groups, including Rise Up California, had been circulating online calls to action for people to turn out and protest.
One of the notices posted to Twitter asks for volunteers to “Resist Breitbart at Inland Empire conference” by way of a “peaceful demonstration.”
