In one historic day, both U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin attended events in Beverly Hills on Feb. 18. Trump’s approximately four-hour foray into Beverly Hills included meetings with the LA 2028 Olympic Committee and a fundraiser at the Montage Beverly Hills. A colorful array of banners (both pro and anti-Trump) lined the President’s motorcade route into the City from the Santa Monica airport.

Many wore red shirts and MAGA hats, waving signs of support. The Courier observed a few of them engaged in spirited discussions with Trump protestors.
