      As far as not leaving the speech, I believe they were told that secret service wouldn't allow early departure, not that the secret service themselves told attendees they couldn't leave. Also, as a matter of security, the group shouldn't be allowed to leave early. In doing advance you usually had a color coded emblem visible, that indicated how close you were able to get to the candidate or the politician.

        Trump never worked with union workers cause he's too cheap and he's known not to pay the work done.

Now from what Shell has done they have fire breathing water. Since Shell and any other company like it or associated with it has raped the world with their fluctuating prices they can afford to pay workers overtime. So what we see are not necessary Trump supporters, we see people whose paychecks are lacking because of him and have to show up at all costs to and event for extra dollars to help support themselves and their families.
