BARDONIA - A Rockland businessman just opened a campaign headquarters for Donald Trump in the Hudson Valley at his own expense, despite the growing controversy surrounding the presumptive Republican presidential candidate.

The red and white signs on Route 303 lead to Barry Fixler's new Trump headquarters in Bardonia.

"Not enough people are supporting Donald Trump," says Fixler, a jeweler and war veteran. "I'm very patriotic for this country."

Trump advocates and voters who are at least curious about the candidate are flocking to the new facility to get free gear like bumper stickers and campaign signs.

But Trump continues to make controversial comments on the campaign trail. He's assailed Muslims, women and most recently, an American judge of Mexican descent who is overseeing the lawsuit against Trump University.

But Fixler says such remarks don't make Trump a racist.

"He's definitely not a racist," Fixler says.
