Trump is scheduled to deliver remarks to “First in the South” voters, the campaign said, in Pickens, on East Main Street.

As reported by RSBN, the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir gained internet fame after being asked to cease singing the National Anthem D.C. by Capitol Police.
Trump said in his video, I heard about what happened at the Capitol and that’s a shame – really that’s a serious thing.”
He continued, “To have such an event like that…to be interrupted in such a way. But we’re going to have you in South Carolina and you’re going to sing at a rally for us in front of tens of thousands of people and we’re all going to have a great time together. We love our country, we’re going to take care of our country, and we’re going to respect to the people who love it.”
The event doors on July 1st will open at 9:00 a.m. and special guest speakers will deliver remarks at 11:30 a.m.
