TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - In an effort to unify the country, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered today in front of the old Florida Capitol building in Tallahassee standing behind the Commander in Chief.

Trump has become a controversial political figure. According to an ABC poll, he entered office with a 40% approval rating, making him the most unpopular of at least the last seven newly elected presidents.

With each action in the Oval Office there seems to be a greater rift between those who support and oppose Trump.

That's why Saturday, demonstrators like Julie Dybendahl felt they needed to join together.

"Now that he's in, what he's doing is just amazing," said Dybendahl. "He's lifting all the spirits of Americans and quite frankly on the media, the main stream media. There's a lot of negativity and I just think its unjustified."

The rally in Tallahassee was one of many across the country.

In Florida, people gathered with flags and signs to support the republican president in Sarasota.

Similar rallies took place in Austin, Nashville, Washington, and New York City.
