From Obama to Trump: Official gift seller arrives with goods ahead of Trump Save America rally

Excitement is building for the Save America Trump rally, scheduled for Saturday at the Alaska Airlines Arena on the University of Alaska campus in Anchorage. Former President Donald Trump will be the guest speaker on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka; US House candidate Sarah Palin and Governor Mike Dunleavy.

The Secret Service has been tasked with searching the city for dangerous types, and a few on social media might even be visited by a law enforcement official or two, just to check on the nature of their social media threats. .

Already, a few merchandise stands have popped up around Anchorage, with Trump hats, shirts, stickers and other items for sale.

The man behind it is Antwon (Zakos) Williams from South Carolina. He was once a supporter of Barack Obama, but when Hillary Clinton ran for president, Williams said he started to understand. He started listening to Donald Trump and found he had to agree that black Americans were being manipulated by Democrats.

Williams is in charge of all official Save America merchandise stands at rallies. He goes state to state with the Trump Organization, and has a close relationship with the former president.

But for this gathering, booths, tables and merchandise were delayed in Alaska due to the collapse of the Alcan Highway last Friday. This put Williams late to release the goods several days before a rally. Usually the public likes to buy their Trump loot in advance, he said.

With the pressure of time, Williams’ pop-up shops were saved by Trump supporter Donna Anthony, who runs a gun safety business and owns a fair trade booth tent that she lent to Williams until the arrival of Trump officials. His booth tents say “Point Blank” on them, but those are Trump-sanctioned merchandise locations, waiting for the delayed tents to arrive.

On the Must Read Alaska Spectacle It was live on Tuesday, Williams advised people to get to the arena early – before 6 a.m. – if they hope to secure a spot. If they arrive at noon, they are unlikely to go inside, he advised.
