Avery County Sheriff Kevin Frye stumped for Donald Trump at the GOP presidential candidate’s rally in Asheville on Sept. 12. Frye estimated that about 7,500 people attended the event.

“It was an honor to be asked to speak at the Trump Rally in Asheville,” Frye said in a statement to the media.

“What really upsets me is the coverage of the mainstream news media focusing on about six protesters who made it in the rally and caused a disturbance. These people antagonized and provoked people trying to get them to react and this is what is covered, not the thousands of people who were enthusiastic and supportive.”

In thanking the Asheville Police Department, the U.S. Secret Service and other agencies for “keeping order and maintaining such a great professional demeanor when faced with people who just wanted to not voice their opinion but create problems,” Frye noted that Trump is the candidate who sides with law enforcement.

“My speech was about needing a President who will stand with law enforcement during these trying times. It is not something which happens in the big cities. We have had deputies slain here in Avery County and just recently in Shelby, NC and across the nation. As provocateurs get more coverage, as those who shoot officers get more sympathy and as potential sports role models display anti-American sentiments, these problems will only increase.”
