GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Authorities said it was a peaceful crowd Monday night where supporters and protesters rallied outside Donald Trump’s event in Green Bay.
Trump supporters lined the street outside the KI Convention Center, starting at 6 a.m., waiting for their chance to see Trump.
“We enjoy the trump rallies. We call them trump love fests,” said Randal Thom, a Trump supporter.
But along with the supporters, were those who never intended to go into the rally at all.
“All I am saying is don’t vote for Trump,” said Watan Alshakly, a Trump protester.
Although the protesters were outnumbered by supporters, both sides said they felt obligated to stand their ground outside the center because they want the truth to come out.
Those against Trump want the truth to come out about how he treats women.
“I think it’s important for a leader to speak in a professional way. I find it really problematic with the language,” said Eric Kuzma, Clinton supporter.
“There might be some women out there with children and grandchildren that might rethink this whole thing because it comes down to basic human decency,” said Karen Piantek, Clinton Supporter.
Those against Clinton want her to be held responsible for her emails.
“I am hoping people see the truth, you know, you see how crooked and corrupt the government is, especially the Clintons, and I am hoping that the Department of Justice or FBI director comes clean,” Stephen Fuhri, Trump supporter.
“I encourage the people who are here and encourage other voters to get out and speak the truth about who he is,” said Thom.
Both sides are just as passionate about their positions and stood outside the KI Convention Center Monday hoping to change someone’s mind.
“I plan on being out here until I am the last person standing,” said Kuzma.
“I wanted to show people it could be done civilly,” said Fuhri.
