ROCHESTER, Minn.- Not everybody is excited about President Trump's visit to Rochester.
KIMT caught up with people protesting throughout Rochester.
One of the first protest was the “Greater than Fear” rally at Soldiers Field Memorial park.
Hundreds of people gathered at the rally to show President Trump that Rochester is a community of welcoming diversity.
“We are here to be peaceful and show that we are united,” said Amanda Jones.
She came from the Twin Cities to support protesters.
“I just feel like we should stand strong, and if we stand together then we can fight people like Trump,” said Jones.
Other protesters like Caitlin Matera walked with her daughter to show that women shouldn’t be punished for speaking out against sexual assaults.
“I'm a survivor and my daughter doesn't have to be a survivor. I believe all women and now is the time for them to start believing me and there should never be a reason why my daughter should have to be believed,” said Matera.
Protesters marched from Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial park to Rosa Parks Pavilion, which is just blocks away from Mayo Civic Center.
