CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Protests followed both inside and outside of Charlotte Government Center Monday night.

Critics and supporters alike spoke out about controversial comments a city leader made during a taping of Flashpoint on NBC Charlotte.

While speaking about President Donald Trump, Democrat Dimple Ajmera suggested anyone who supported Mr. Trump isn’t fit to be in local office. Ajmera currently represents east Charlotte but is running for an at-large seat on council.
