Delaware Trump campaign chair Rob Arlett told the outlet his group organized the protest with the Delaware Republicans.
“We were honestly a little nervous going and protesting in Biden’s hometown,” Tyler Bowyer, chief operating officer of Students for Trump, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“What we discovered is that the enthusiasm for Biden, even in Delaware is practically nonexistent,” he added.
“And the DNC convention feels like the equivalent of a deflated balloon.”
Billboard trucks paid for by Turning Point Action drove around the city bearing slogans like “Sleepy Joe Biden,” according to the News Journal.
Before the demonstration, an airplane with a banner that said, “JOE BIDEN IS LOSING IT — VOTE TRUMP 2020” flew over the Chase Center.

“To see so much support for President Trump was electrifying,” activist and influencer Isabel Brown, who was on the ground at the protest, told the DCNF.
“I hope it inspires more young Americans to proudly speak up about what they believe in and what their values are, knowing there are thousands of other young conservatives out there.”
