It was an intense scene Friday afternoon outside the City-County Building in downtown Pittsburgh.Dozens of police and sheriff’s deputies shut down Grant Street, acting as a barrier between President Donald Trump supporters and anti-Trump activists.
It started out with about a half dozen Trump supporters holding a prayer protest to stop stealing the vote. They were then confronted by Anti-Trump activists.
Things then took an unexpected turn. The two groups engaged in a spirited debate, then took it across the street to have coffee.
“I wish to God I could have talked to you two weeks ago. Because you and I would have been kicking back this weekend drinking and laughing at all of these people showing up at the polls. You’re a good dude. Continue to be a good dude,” one activist said.
“You’re good too. What if your voice was so powerful, that you and I, like we’re doing right now. What if that was in every city around the country? You have two people. What kind of country do you think we would have?” Chris Eryz, a Trump supporter, replied to the activist.
Beyond the debate, there were no incidents along Grant Street. No one was injured, and no one was arrested.
