ROCHESTER, Minn.- President Trump has moved on to his next rally.
Less than 24 hours ago thousands of people filled the downtown area to hear the President speak at Mayo Civic Center. Now it's back to business downtown as roads reopened and crews clean up what was left behind from the rally.

Those at the Civic Center tell KIMT that around 8,500 people were inside the venue while the President was speaking.
After the rally, Andy Krogstad's crew began to breakdown and clean up.
He said despite the President's status, the rally was really just like any other event.
“It's really similar to a concert, between the stage and lighting just a different performer,” said Krogstad.
