On Thursday afternoon, President Trump visited Dallas for a roundtable discussion about policing. He gathered with administration officials and local leaders at the North Campus of Gateway Church to discuss future reforms. 

Outside of the event, dozens of people waited in the Texas heat. Some were protesters who said they’d like to see greater accountability in policing. Others were there to show their support of President Trump.
