ASHWAUBENON, Wis. — President Trump is hosting a rally in the shadow of Lambeau Field on Saturday evening at the Resch Center. The President's supporters have already showed up and are camping out, hoping to get a spot for the President's speech.

President Trump supporters started a makeshift line at 9 a.m. Friday morning at the Resch Center, some traveling from as far away as Florida, just to hear what the president has to say.

The line started small, but that’s not considering that the President isn't set to speak until 7 p.m. on Saturday night. Trump supporters who spoke with NBC26 say they arrived extra early because they expect much more than the anticipated 10,000 Trump fans to arrive. They say they just want to make sure they get a spot inside, so that their plans to attend wasn't a waste of time.

"It's going to be a beautiful and incredible amazing day tomorrow and I can't wait to see it and hear what the president has to say," says Erica Falk.

"I saw him in Mosinee,” says Albert Vetter. “I saw him at St. Norbert’s and I saw him at the Ki Center and I just think it's amazing how he likes Green Bay that much."

Doors at the Resch Center open at 4 p.m. Saturday. If you don't have to travel through this area on Saturday, you probably should avoid it, because there are going to be police, Secret Service and traffic just about everywhere.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office also tweeted out rules for peaceful protest.
