Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump held a second day of small rallies on Saturday in communities around the country, to counterpoint a wave of protests against him that have taken place since his election in November.

Organizers of the Spirit of America rallies in at least 28 of the country's 50 states said they expected smaller turnouts than the huge crowds of anti-Trump protesters who took to the streets of Washington and other cities the day after Trump's inauguration on January 20, according to Reuters.

In Washington, according to the news agency, more than 150 Trump supporters marched a short distance from the Washington Monument to Lafayette Square in front of the White House to show their backing for the president, who was in Florida for the weekend.

During rallies before and after the march, speakers echoed many of Trump's pronouncements about illegal immigration, the Islamic State, Obamacare and "fake news."

In Denver, several dozen people held pro-Trump signs at the top of the steps of the Colorado State Capitol building.

Many anti-Trump rallies were held after he released his executive order temporarily banning immigration from Muslim majority nations, until proper vetting measures are implemented.

There were also rallies against the president during the Presidents Day holiday last month, dubbed as "Not My President's Day".

In one of the anti-Trump protests in January, legendary pop star Madonna stated that she has thought an “awful” lot about blowing up the White House now that Trump lives there.

She later claimed her remarks were a “metaphor” and were “taken wildly out of context”.
