Trump supporters prepare for Saturday rallies

Trump supporters prepare for rallies

PROSPECT, Ky. (WHAS11) -- It's no secret Judy Brown is a big fan of Donald Trump. She has hats, mugs, shot glasses and even a bobble-head commemorating the 45th President of the United States, elected by Brown and others like her hoping for a change in Washington.

"There are a lot of people I think just like me that are cheering for the guy," she said. "And it's like they say, we're all on the same airplane. You better cheer for the pilot. So I'm cheering for the pilot."

Saturday morning, Brown and others around the country will be cheering for President Trump, holding pro-Trump rallies across the country, including one down I-64 in Frankfort, Kentucky.

"We're going to drive down," Brown said. "Decorate your car, bring your signs, wear your Trump garb. I just want to make a show of support."

Brown is hoping to organize a large group of supporters from Louisville to make the trip with her to Frankfort. The plan according to Brown is to have people start meeting at the Cracker Barrel off I-64 on Blankenbaker Parkway around 9:30 a.m. and to leave for Frankfort at 10:15 a.m. Brown said everyone is welcome to join.

The hour-long drive to Frankfort is nothing for Brown, who made the drive to Washington, D.C. in January to watch Trump's inauguration on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

"It was wonderful to be surrounded by people who felt like we did and supported him," she said.

While protests and resistance rallies have taken off around the country following Trump's victory and subsequent inauguration, Brown said it is important for supporters to make sure their voices are heard too.

"It's time to stand up and let them know we're still here," she said. "We elected him for a reason. He's doing what we wanted and we're happy about it."

Her hope for Saturday is to make a peace, yet voice a strong statement to show the country that she and many others are backing their President.

"We're there just to say, 'Hey, you stood up for us. We're standing up for you,'" she said.
