Watching the State of the Union with Trump Supporters

Arizona 360 checks in with Arizonans who voted for Trump by watching the 2018 SOTU.

President Donald Trump last week delivered his first State of the Union, touching on a variety of topics from immigration to nuclear weapons. His rise to the Oval Office was largely due to support from voters in rural communities.

Arizona 360 wanted to check in with supporters of then-candidate Trump to see how the last year shaped their views of his presidency. Host Lorraine Rivera traveled to the neighboring communities of Sonoita and Elgin in northeastern Santa Cruz County to watch the president's address with a group that explained why their support for Trump remains strong.
