CLEVELAND—Jose Landaverde braved blisters and a pro-Trump militia to walk 360 miles to Donald Trump’s coronation. His message: If Trump wins the presidency, there may be a “civil war” in America.
Landaverde is an activist priest from the Diocese of Quincy in Illinois. Over 27 days, he and 19 other Latino demonstrators walked through the rain and the heat to bring to protest Trump’s nomination as the Republican Party’s presidential standard bearer.
Day after day, Landaverde said, he walked to “raise consciousness in small towns about the speech of Donald Trump and his hate against immigrant communities and minorities.”
