Opposing Trump rallies line Bedminster streets amidst Women’s Open

BEDMINSTER -

Dueling demonstrations both for and against President Donald Trump took place in Bedminster Saturday.

The rallies are surrounding President Trump's weekend visit to New Jersey for the U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship, which is taking  place at Trump National Golf Club.

Although there were some scuffles and flared tempers between the two groups, some of the opposing participants were seen hugging and talking.

"It's up to us to show the example that you can differ but cordially, civilly," said Ann Burke, of Middlesex County.

The two rallies are set up across from each other and plan on being held through the weekend. A heavy police presence is also on site to keep the peace.

The president is scheduled to leave Trump National Golf Club Sunday and return back to the White House.
