ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) — President Donald Trump is holding a rally at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon this weekend, where both supporters and protesters will gather for the presidential visit.
Haakon Wagner, a sophomore at UW-Oshkosh studying political science, is a supporter of President Trump and is going to his rally this weekend.
“I like his rhetoric, I agree with most of his views, and I like the fact that he’s willing to stand up for them,” Wagner said.
Braden Friberg, a sophomore at Southwest High School in Green Bay, will also be at President Trump’s rally, protesting it outside the Resch Center.
“Trump knows what he is, and you have to know what you are to get elected,” Friberg said. “So he’s playing to that fear, that xenophobia in our country with the Muslim ban.”
Wagner said he agrees with President Trump’s policies.
“I like his stance on immigration,” Wagner said. “It was a problem that needed to be solved and no one was really willing to step up to the plate on it. That usually wasn’t what I was concerned about, until last summer, there was a girl from Iowa that was murdered by an illegal immigrant.”
Friberg believes Senator Bernie Sanders is a better choice in 2020.
“A lot of people are worried about Bernie and his socialism and the higher taxes, but I agree with the policies, there’s a big income inequality in America,” he said.
Both Wagner and Friberg have political views that mix as well as oil and water, but they both have something in common when it comes to politics: they’re passionate about them.
