He remarked on how the rally was “inspiring” given the climate on college campuses. 

“I think that's really due to the fact that on our college campuses - and then maybe even in our groups with friends or on social media such as Twitter and Instagram - we often feel as young conservatives and Trump supporters in particular that we fear social ostracization,” Decker said.

"We fear even having our grades lowered in classes because our views don't align with certain professors and we really just fear being blackballed there are victims of council culture but today's event was really inspiring," Decker added.
