MOSINEE, Wis. (WAOW) — Not everyone wore a red hat Wednesday night at President Donald Trump’s rally in Mosinee.

Dozens of protesters were outside of the Central Wisconsin Airport, who spoke out against the president and what he stands for.

“We think Donald Trump is unfit for the office of the President of the United States,” Roger Cuthbertson of Minneapolis said.  “We need to address problems like global warming and climate change and he doesn’t get on board with that. He does everything to dismantle it.”

Some protesters held signs and others used microphones to make their presence known and their voices heard.

“I would like America to be great but not the way he wants it to be great,” one protester said.

Some groups said they wanted to focus more on bringing both parties together.

“The divisiveness of the political climate right now is just ripping the state and the country apart,” Christine Salm-Little, of Forward Action Wisconsin Network said.

Scott Block, of Wausau, is against the president but got a ticket to Wednesday night’s rally. He wasn’t there for long, before he got kicked out.

“The secret service agent that I talked to said as long as I am not an issue, and I said I won’t be an issue other than I will say respectful things at appropriate times,” Block said.  “About five minutes later, two very big secret service agents stepped up to me and said ‘sir, you’re coming with us.’ ”

All protesters said they want their voices heard just as much as those who were inside the rally.
