As Democrats prepared for their last debate before primary voting commences, President Donald Trump was eager to provide political counter-programming in a nearby battleground state. President Trump arrived in Wisconsin Tuesday night, Jan. 14 for a rally in Milwaukee coinciding with the final Democratic presidential debate in Iowa, which holds its kickoff caucuses on Feb. 3.
Near the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena, multiple groups came together Tuesday evening — led by the Coalition to March on the Democratic National Convention — gathering at Red Arrow Park an hour before the rally. Coalition officials said 12 organizations joined them for this protest, and they anticipated thousands of people would participate.
