Baltimore seems to be the home of citizens who are not that keen of having Trump attend the Army-Navy football game. As Western Journalism reports, a small group of residents protested Trump’s appearance.
“We knew we need to not back down from Trump,” said Ro, one of the leaders of the march. https://t.co/DthbVzQoiH

“No Trump, No KKK, No fascist U.S.A,” protesters chanted, “We reject the president-elect.”
Kun Sun Sweeley of Waverly, was part of the group, too. He explained that their protest is their way of expressing a deep disapproval of Trump’s presidency. The group that marched outside M&T Bank Stadium said that Baltimore and other cities don’t support Trump.
“I am fully against Donald Trump and his racist and bigoted rhetoric,” Sweeney added.
Charlie Kerr is the protest organizer. Their protest was supposed to “normalize” Trump.
“We thought it was important to show there are people who oppose him and don’t want him in our town,” Kerr explained.
Luckily, there were no violent reactions. You could hear something like “Go get a job” or “Make America Great Again,” but that was pretty much all.
Joseph Jones, who sported a Navy hat, showed his attitude towards the situation.
“You’re lucky you live in a country where people are willing to fight for your right to whine,” Jones said.
As a show of support for our Armed Forces, I will be going to The Army-Navy Game today. Looking forward to it, should be fun!

Trump’s tweet announced his presence at the game. He planned “to show support for our Armed Forces.”
Obama has attended just one game, in 2011, and Bush did three.
Will these protest end? Do you think that Baltimore residents will clear their minds?
