President Trump takes selfies with supporters in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — Before Air Force One touched down in Wisconsin on Friday, a crowd of people waited patiently to welcome President Donald Trump.

A crowd of about 100 people cheered "four more years" as Trump deplaned. Despite a delay, the president stopped to meet with supporters, who tried their best to capture the moment.

"We took lots of pictures. My son got to shake his hand, and it was just an honor," said Vesna Stojsavljevic.

Some left with selfies while others had hats signed by the president. One woman had the Commander in Chief sign her designer Christian Louboutin shoes.

"The first time that I wore these shoes was at the White House last year, and so it's something that holds a lot of sentimental value," said Carla Echeveste, a Milwaukee native.

For this crowd, seeing the president and Air Force One was special.

"I respect so much the office of the president and just to see the Air Force One land in front of you it's just unbelievable and so exciting, and I have chills right now," said Cole Steinmann.
