Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS - REUTERS


Sup­port­ers of U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump were hold­ing ral­lies in towns and cities across the coun­try on Mon­day, partly as a re­but­tal to waves of anti-Trump protests that have taken place since the Repub­li­can’s elec­tion last Novem­ber. Trump was not sched­uled to ap­pear at any of this week’s ral­lies. The venues range from a park in the small town of Gravette, Arkansas, to the plaza out­side the Ge­or­gia State Capi­tol build­ing in down­town At­lanta. In At­lanta, a crowd of about 200 mostly white sup­port­ers gath­ered on an over­cast day. “I just think we need to sup­port our pres­i­dent,” said Vi­vian Phillips, a 60-yearold re­tired school­teacher who drove more than seven hours from her West Vir­ginia home to at­tend the rally in At­lanta.
