MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A group of Wisconsin Republicans caught a ride on Air Force One Tuesday when President Donald Trump flew into Milwaukee for a campaign rally.
First District Congressman Bryan Steil of Janesville posted a selfie on social media showing him with former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus of Kenosha; Sean Duffy, former Seventh District Congressman; Fifth District Congressman James Sensenbrenner; Sixth District Congressman Glenn Grothman and Eighth District Congressman Mike Gallagher.
At his rally, Trump touted his record on the economy while defending his national security decisions speaking to a sold-out arena in Milwaukee.
The president spoke to the crowd about his campaign promises made in 2016 such as job creation and record low unemployment, even giving former Gov. Scott Walker a shoutout as Wisconsin hit all-time low unemployment of 2.9% when he was in office.
Outside of the arena, about a dozen local organizations protested Trump's appearance.
They started at Red Arrow Park, then marched about a half-mile to outside Panther Arena where the president was speaking.
Protesters held signs that said "Dump Trump" and chanted "this is what Democracy looks like."
