ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Protesters gathered near the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona to demonstrate against President Trump who will give a speech soon Tuesday night. In his first such event since causing an uproar last week with remarks about a white nationalist demonstration in Virginia, Trump was expected to make remarks at the rally but not use the event to pardon former Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arizona's two U.S. senators, who have both clashed with President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, were expected to skip his campaign rally where large protests are planned. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a Democrat, had asked Trump to postpone Tuesday's event scheduled for 7 p.m. MST (0200 GMT on Wednesday). Neither John McCain nor Jeff Flake, the state's senators, was expected to attend, said a source familiar with the Flake campaign and published reports, underscoring Trump's fractious relationship with some in his own party.
