These Mainers standing against Trump’s racism will warm your heart

As Donald Trump spoke at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on Wednesday, Mainers gathered outside to stand against his message of intolerance and hate and stand up for the groups of Americans he has targeted during his campaign.

“Maine is the home of Joshua Chamberlain and Margaret Chase. Donald Trump’s attempts to divide us by race, gender and religion are not what we stand for as a state. Today we showed Trump that Maine has no place for racism and hate,” said Jesse Graham, executive director of the Maine People’s Alliance, which helped to organize the protest.
