President Donald Trump is back in Minnesota tonight speaking at a campaign-style “Make America Great Again” rally in Rochester.
Ahead of the President’s visit, the group C.U.R.E. (Communities United for Rochester Empowerment) holds a peaceful rally and march. Organizer Regina Mustafa said they intend to, “Put out messages of unity, embrace diversity and just to come together. We didn’t want something where we wanted to antagonize people who are going to come to town to see Mr. Trump. We really wanted to have something that really brought us all together and sends a positive message.”
Mustafa added that she believes President Trump continues to divide Americans and, “That’s my personal opinion as a Muslim-American woman with a Muslim ban really promoting fear.”
Backers of the president’s ban say it’s helping keep America safe from terrorism.
Mustafa said the “Greater Than Fear” rally begins at noon at Soldiers Memorial Field Park, followed by a march through the downtown area. President Trump will be speaking at the Mayo Civic Center at 6:30 p.m.
