It was estimated that around 80 cars and trucks full of President Trump supporters swarmed Main Street Friday night in Carmi as enthusiastic White County residents showed their support by driving up and down Main Street displaying American flags, Trump 2020 flags and signs, along with other signs and flags bearing a conservative message. A BLM (Black Lives Matter) rally scheduled for Friday morning had been posted on the White County Republican Facebook page earlier in the week, but was pulled by the poster, along with another BLM event announcing a rally at the next Republican party meeting. It is not known who posted those events and there was no appearance in Carmi on Friday of anyone representing the group.
The Trump rally lined up in front of the Republican party headquarters, then drove out to Ginny's restaurant, and back west through town out to the Elastec parking lot before turning around and doing it again. Participants drove up and down Main Street honking and waving at onlookers for about 1 1/2 hours.
