Conservative activist Scott Presler took a stand against hecklers and critics who confronted him during a San Francisco street cleanup.
The openly gay supporter of President Donald Trump, who has led cleanup campaigns in liberal cities like Baltimore and Los Angeles, was leading efforts in San Francisco when one “young woman became very aggressive.”
I was cleaning up the streets of San Francisco & this young woman became very aggressive.
I don’t know what came over me,
but I proclaimed my support for @realDonaldTrump on the dirty streets of SF & people listened.
I hope this goes viral. pic.twitter.com/ZfIHg1d5SH

“I don’t know what came over me,” Presler tweeted, sharing a video of the incident on Thursday, adding that he “proclaimed my support” the president “on the dirty streets of SF.”
“Why are illegal immigrants more important than Americans?” he asked spectators in the video, pointing out the homeless people “sleeping on the streets” in the city.
“Why do we, in one of the biggest economies here in California, take care of illegal immigrants but our people are sleeping on the streets? I’d like to hear an answer to that,” he said. “Why? Nobody can ever answer that question.”
“I want this to go viral because I give a damn and I care about my community,” Presler continued, explaining that his father and grandfather are retired Navy captains who served the country honorably.
He boldly declared that he would be voting for Trump in November and slammed the Democratic Party for not putting Americans first.
“They put sanctuary cities first. They put illegal aliens first. They tax us…while Nancy Pelosi is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars robbing our pockets” and “passing out pens like candy,” he said, referring to the Democrat House Speaker commemorating the solemn occasion of signing the articles of impeachment against Trump by handing out dozens of personalized pens.
“I am proud of President Trump,” Presler said, citing his administration’s accomplishments and for “putting the America people first.”
“2020! Register to vote and vote!” he concluded and followed up with a tweet expressing gratitude for the video going viral, with now nearly 700,000 views.
You made this go viral.
You helped reach the eyes & ears of over 600,000 viewers/listeners.
Now, register to vote at your current address & make a plan to vote for @realDonaldTrump this November.

Presler addressed Pelosi directly in a tweet following the State of the Union address, calling her out for her petty and disrespectful act of tearing up her copy of the president’s speech.
My name is Scott Presler.
While you’re ripping up President @realDonaldTrump’s speech,
I traveled to your district in San Francisco for a trash cleanup.

Presler was praised for his courage last year when he boldly visited a Nevada Starbucks carrying his laptop computer with a sticker declaring “I’m gay. Trump 2020. Democrats don’t own me.”
“We are going to go downstairs [and] scope out the area. We are secret spies on a mission, and our goal is to see what people say to us. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it ugly? But, either way, I’m going to ask people: are you registered to vote at your current address?” he said in a video from October.
While the left continues to show its “tolerance” by bashing the Trump supporter, Presler has been showered with thanks and praise for putting actions behind his words.
Thank you, Jack — very humbling. https://t.co/YK6m5Yp9nT

Kudos Mr. Presler. It is about time the people hear the brutally harsh truth about what Democrats stand for, or more importantly, what they do NOT stand for, which is American citizens.
