Demonstrators gather to protest Trump at Willow Run Airport.


Several hundred demonstrators gathered to protest Donald Trump Wednesday, March 15, as he arrived at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, Township. Trump arrived at Willow Run around 2 pm to meet with automotive leaders at the American Center For Mobility which is located at Willow Run Airport.

Trump met with automotive leaders  to discuss a review of EPA auto emission standards initiated under the Obama administration.

Protesters believe that the emission standards implemented by the Obama administration will be eliminated under the Trump administration. Many protesters in attendance carried handmade signs illustrating their opposition to Trump policies.

Vehicles lined Wiard Road leading to Willow Run Airport along the Interstate as demonstrators parked on the shoulder and walked to the protest roughly one quarter mile away. The protest was staged on Airport Drive.
