PARSIPPANY, NJ - Not one but two rallies in support of President Trump and the Police were held less than a mile from each other in Parsippany on Saturday, September 12th.

Thousands of people gathered both at Veteran's Park and at the corner of Baldwin Road and Rt. 46 East.  A small group of anti-Trump protestors organized on the opposite corner on Rt. 46 West.

The group in support of the President waved flags, held signs and encouraged cars to honk their horns.  The group opposed to the President held different signs.  One said "I can s&*t a better President".  Another said "F*&k" Trump.
