CLEVELAND-- Rallies were held across the country on Saturday in support of President Donald Trump.
In Cleveland, supporters gathered at Voinovich Bicentennial Park at the East 9th Street Pier.
"We strongly support President Trump in his effort to put America First and we are holding small rallies to show support for President Trump’s 'Contract with the American Voter.' Other issues are not being addressed at these rallies. Blue collar voters helped propel President Trump to victory and these rallies will help provide those forgotten voices a mechanism so they can be heard," according to the Main Street Patriots website.
Anti-Trump protesters also showed up in Cleveland. Cleveland police were on hand to monitor the situation and no violence was reported.
Nationally, groups of hundreds of people turned out in places from Colorado's state Capitol to near Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for the "March 4 Trump" demonstrations. Sometimes, they clashed verbally with generally smaller groups of counter protesters.
At Trump Tower, a couple hundred supporters gathered and chanted "U-S-A" and held signs with messages such as: "Yes he is our president."
Some minor scuffles between dueling demonstrators at the Minnesota State Capitol were quickly defused by other protesters and police. Near Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach Post reported that people on both sides exchanged profanity.
Trump's motorcade briefly stopped so he could wave at supporters.
