Father, son from California follow President Trump's rallies

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO, Ill. -- A father and son from California have been following the President since he was a candidate in 2015.

Lance Rogers and his son Tyler have been crisscrossing the country, stopping at nearly 80 Trump rallies in the last three years.

They set up shop on Route 13 near the Murphysboro Walmart, selling President Trump memorabilia to fund their travels.

Both men said they're excited about what Mr. Trump means for the country.

"I think he's the best president we've ever had," Lance Rogers said. "Everything that Trump has said he's going to do, he's doing, he's fulfilling, with trade and everything."

"It's amazing," Tyler Rogers said. "I've seen turn from being against Donald Trump everywhere we go to loving him."

The father-son duo arrived from California Tuesday night and have seen some support and opposition to their pop-up shop.

Several others have set up similar shops around the area ahead of the President's visit.
