SACRAMENTO, Calif - President Donald Trump’s visit to McLellan Park prompted dozens of demonstraters on both sides to come out.

"I just want to show my support for the democratic parties and committees and for those who don’t have voices,” said protester Deanna Simas.

“It means everything to show our support," said protesters Tommy Sober and Michelle Gonzales. "There is a lot of good and people kind of use more emotion than logic but there are so many good things that Trump has done.”

Tommy Sober and Michelle Gonzales said they the protest should just be about coming together during these tough times.

“It is important for us Americans to be here and stand up for what we believe in whether we agree or disagree, but in general, we should just come together regardless," said Sober and Gonzales. 

Deanna Simas told Action News Now she is thankful for President Trump coming to California to address the wildfires while her husband Tony thinks he should’ve been here sooner.

“His job as a president is to find disasters and say 'hey that country needs help right there, it’s a national disaster'," said Tony Simas. "He is supposed to go and talk to these people. He is supposed to try and cure what he can as a president.”

Protesters said they plan to stay at the protest and show their support until they're kicked out of the area.

President Trump says that he will continue to give his support to those who are experiencing these devestating wildfires in California.
