President Donald Trump was back in Wisconsin for the second time in his presidency on Tuesday, and crowds both supporting and opposing him were out to let them know they were watching.

"I think he has not forgotten that Wisconsin came through for him," said Kathy DeVires.

The president arrived at General Mitchell International Airport on Air Force One with his daughter Ivanka Trump and other leaders in the afternoon. There was a crowd waiting to catch a glimpse.

"Very exciting. A moment to remember that I'll always remember this," said Joe Krupa.

The motorcade then headed to Waukesha County Technical College where the president was met by more supporters. 

"He's brilliant, he is. I love him," said Will Schimnels.

Trump toured campus and held a roundtable discussion about jobs.

"I just want to be here to greet him and show my support for President Trump," said Judy Johnson.

The president then went downtown Milwaukee to take part in a fundraiser for Gov. Scott Walker at the Hyatt Regency, where protesters gathered outside, waiting to send their message to Trump and Walker.

"The reason why I'm here is because I don't believe in what he's doing," said Anita Johnson.

"There are folks who are willing to make it known that we don't agree with the things he's been doing," said Bob Benishek.

One of the biggest issues protesters said concerns them is healthcare,  a topic Trump talked about at the airport earlier today.
