Breitbart News is reporting that a Trump voter who attended a rally for the presumptive GOP nominee in Wisconsin this week told Breitbart News she “was worried” about his stances on women’s rights and immigration.
She said the crowd “didn’t seem like they were listening” to what Trump had to say, and they “were making up their minds on what to do.”
“When I walked up, I said, ‘Can I say something to the people?
Can I make sure that you know that I’m voting for Donald Trump?'” the woman, who asked to be identified only as Laura, said at the rally.
“And they just looked at me like, ‘That’s fine.’
It was pretty strange.”
She said she was “just in disbelief,” and asked the woman if she was concerned about his position on women.
The woman said that after the rally, she was walking home from work, when she saw the “pile of people” waiting to come to the rally and saw Trump “look up at the ceiling” and start talking about immigration and women’s issues.
She then noticed that “there were four or five Trump supporters.”
“I thought, Oh my gosh, what are these people doing there?
I just went to see if I could get into the building,” Laura said.
Laura said that she and her friends were waiting to go to the front of the line, and were approached by several men who said they were going to give the people there a chance to speak.
“I’m just curious about what’s going on,” Laura told Breitbart.
“They just seemed so relaxed, like they had fun with it.”
Laura said she asked the men, “Why are you doing this?
Why are you voting for this?”
They told her that she had “nothing to worry about” and that they would “make sure you knew who you were voting for,” she said.
The men then gave Laura an envelope and told her to put it in the envelope, and then handed it to a Trump supporter, Laura said, before asking her if she had a reason for voting for Trump.
Laura asked the man if he knew who Trump was, and the man responded, “Yeah.”
Laura then asked the Trump supporter if he was a Trump fan.
“No,” the man said.
“I just heard that you guys had a great time.”
Laura asked why they didn’t ask for her name, and she said, “I didn’t want them to know that this was a Republican rally.”
Laura explained that she was voting for her first Republican presidential candidate, former Governor Sarah Palin, but was concerned that “the way [Trump] talks” might lead people to think that she is a “fringe Democrat.”
Laura, who said she has been a Republican since she was a child, said she believes Trump’s rhetoric and platform are not representative of the Republican Party.
Laura and her friend asked the Republican National Committee (RNC) about the incident, and RNC spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski told Breitbart, “The RNC is aware of the incident and has taken steps to ensure that the information is taken seriously.”
Laura was not able to confirm if the incident was part of the “Trump supporter” program, which is supposed to be a nonpartisan outreach program that gives Trump supporters a chance at receiving a “free” ballot.
Laura’s experience was not unique.

Laura said her friend had also been told to vote “for a woman,” and that she “didn, like, get a sense of where it was going” and how she was supposed to vote.
Laura told Breitbart that she thought the “fraud” of the Trump supporters was to “give people a chance.”
“They were just doing what they were supposed to do, just trying,” she added.
Laura was one of two Trump supporters at the Wisconsin rally who was not given a free ballot.
The other Trump supporter was also not given any free ballot, Laura added.
She added that she felt the Trump campaign had a “very high bar” for what constitutes a free vote, saying that she didn’t think the campaign would “just go up to the crowd and say, ‘We know who we’re voting.
We have a lot of Trump voters in the audience.
We want you to vote Trump.'””
And I don’t think they would ever do that,” Laura added, noting that she feels “there’s a lot to be learned from this.”
Laura and the other Trump supporters said that they had to leave
