Lt. Tiffani Nielsen, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota State Patrol, said officers estimated there to be about 400 Trump supporters in attendance and around 50 protesters.Saturday's rally was one of several held across the country to show support for Trump.

Some Trump supporters were recorded screaming at the police to do their jobs and accusing them of standing down for political reasons. "People feel pride. Yes, optimism for sure", said Sot Phil Young of Sewell.

They said they were all that remained from a larger gathering earlier in the day of hundreds of people who showed up to rally for Trump.

Protesters called the president's policies divisive and say they want to show support for LGBTQ, immigrant and Muslim communities.

In New York, a couple hundred supporters gathered near the president's Manhattan home, chanting "U-S-A".

Dozens of President Trump supporters lined up near interstate 41 today. Also, only about 60 to 75 Trump supporters were there, according to the Chronicle, and counter-protesters and self-proclaimed anarchists far outnumbered them.

At the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, scuffles broke out between pro-Trump demonstrators and a smaller group of anti-Trump protesters, according to the Star Tribune.

This is just one of several similar rallies being held all over the nation.

In San Diego, Calif., more than 200 supporters of Mr. Trump gathered downtown.

Saturday's demonstrations - which were meant to be small, according to the Main Street Patriots - come just one week after Trump tweeted something of a call for rallies backing his administration. "We're going to make America great again for you too, whether you voted for Trump or not, he's going to do this for you". She said she's pleased that the president has followed through on his campaign promises.

Protesters, some wearing shirts with profanity, chanted "This is what Orlando looks like", "No Fascist USA", and "We go high, they go low".
