On August 12th, Donald Trump hosted a rally in Kissimmee, Florida. For almost 20 minutes prior to his speech, a Confederate flag saying “Trump 2016” hung from the railing in Silver Spurs Arena (the venue). There is heated debate about the meaning of this conflicting imagery, as well as its association with racist sentiments, and what those sentiments mean in context of the Trump campaign. Trump spoke on a number of issues, even touching upon the Pulse attacks in that region.
