A group of protesters hold up signs outside of Moore Hall during Donald Trump Jr.’s stop on his promotional tour for his book ''Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us'' on Sunday. Kelley DeVine, a second-year geography student (second from left), said she doesn’t believe holding this event is what the UCLA community stands for.

Gregg Donovan, who identifies as a supporter of President Donald Trump, holds up an American flag and a “Trump 2020” sign outside Moore Hall. Many supporters of Donald Trump showed up to the event for various reasons. For a few, fighting for first amendment rights was one of them.

Retired teacher Nancy Jones points toward the line of people waiting to enter the event. She said she was there to protest the mistreatment of children under the Trump administration, citing the lack of standard care in migrant detention centers.

Two supporters of Donald Trump chat with each other prior to the start of the event. Miley Cyrus’ ‘’Party in the USA’’ plays in the background, and the crowd began chanting ‘’USA’’ as the song ended.

Donald Trump Jr., Charlie Kirk and Kimberly Guilfoyle hold a panel while a woman in a hijab protests from the back of the auditorium. The woman agreed to be photographed but chose to remain anonymous.

Guilfoyle accused the anonymous protester of supporting the dead Islamic State group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and suggested that she visit the student health center.

During the event, Donald Trump Jr. and Kirk accused the ‘’liberal media’’ of reporting on an alleged assault on Jussie Smollett by individuals wearing ''Make America Great Again'' hats, but staying silent when investigators found that Smollett staged the attack. Major news outlets such as The New York Times did report on the falsity of the accusations.

Brandon Recor, the man wearing the “Make America Great Again” hat, and Los Angeles Times photojournalist Brian van der Brug take photos of each other. They both thought they were blocking each other, but they were actually trying to get candid photos of each other, van der Brug said.

Armed officers from the UCPD were situated around the perimeter of Moore Hall.

The Afrikan Student Union at UCLA, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán de UCLA and Samahang Pilipino came together to protest UCLA’s expenditure on the book signing event instead of allocating funds toward black Bruins.
