Pro-Trump Rallies Scheduled Across the Nation on Saturday

Nationwide demonstrations have been planned for Saturday to show support and appreciation for President Donald. J. Trump. Since his election, there has been a slew of often violent anti-Trump protest rallies and marches across the country — and the organized left is only getting started. The more effective he is, the louder and more unhinged they will get.

Trump’s supporters want to show the nation that Trump and his agenda have lots of support from mainstream Americans. A group called “Main Street Patriots” organized the “Spirit of America” rallies across the country on March 4 for just that purpose.

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.

There was a spontaneous uprising of grassroots activists that voted for President Trump to find a way to let people know that we support his agenda. Unlike those protesting against President Trump’s vision, we are a diverse coalition that are the heart and soul of America that wants our nation to fulfill our potential, as the greatest nation on God’s green earth!

With high-profile acts of terrorism at home and abroad, with police shootings in the headlines and police officers dead in the line of duty, the government’s first duty to keep the country safe has to be addressed.

The rallies will be positive, patriotic, uplifting, and open to anyone that supports an America First agenda. These rallies are not tea party events.

“It’s to demonstrate support for Donald Trump and the patriots of America,” said Mark Skoda, a Cleveland native who’s a leader in the Tennessee Tea Party movement, in a telephone interview.

“These rallies are inclusive, non-partisan, and open to anyone supporting President Trump in his efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs to America, put the security of our nation ahead of political correctness, improve our infrastructure, revitalize the inner cities, and secure our nation’s borders,” said Debbie Dooley, a national co-founder of the Tea Party movement and an organizer of the Spirit of America rallies.

Ralph King, a Trump elector from Ohio and co-founder the Cleveland Tea Party, stressed that the rallies are not about specific sponsors or organizations. He said the Spirit of America rallies have no direct tie with the White House or Trump’s campaign organization.

“Nope. It’s not about them,” King said. “This is literally grassroots. Whether you’re doing this with 1,000 people or you’re doing this with a handful, get out there. That’s what it’s about.”
