BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) - Hundreds of people gathered at rallies on both ends of Pennsylvania Saturday to show support for President Donald Trump, joining others at similar rallies around the country.

Supporters waved signs and flags and listened to speeches during the “Spirit of America” rally in Bensalem’s Neshaminy State Park in eastern Pennsylvania.

“They love their country and they love what Donald Trump represents, which is about making America first,” organizer Jim Worthington said. “We are here to meet and make sure all Americans are prospering.”

Liz Kimmel, one of those who braved the cold weather to support Trump, said “I couldn’t be more proud of him or proud to be an American.”

The Erie Times-News reported that about 100 people gathered at a square in downtown Erie in northwestern Pennsylvania for a similar pro-Trump demonstration.

“We’ve got to get the whole country united behind this man,” said Richard Brozell, 75, who along with his wife attended the gathering despite temperature in the mid-20s with a stiff wind-chill.

Linda Pezzino, a 52-year-old retired Erie cosmetologist, told the crowd that they had “turned Erie red on Nov. 8,” making Trump the first Republican presidential candidate to win Erie County since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Trump has done more in three weeks than (President Barack) Obama did in eight years! It’s ridiculous!” she said.
