Not everyone who was at Eppley Airfield was there to see Donald Trump, or were happy about his appearance in Omaha.
 
A few protesters made their voices heard. In one incident before the rally inside the hanger a young man got into it with Trump supporters. At one point he was nose to nose with a Trump fan before security came in and removed him.
 
There have been about 50 people out here today all protesting against Donald Trump. They all come with their reasons for being out here but they agree on one thing: they do not want Trump as their next president.  Bernie Sanders supporters were here and people from several Omaha organizations. Trump protester Dale Gutiereez who says they had to be out here today to make sure the Trump supporters saw them. "It's also important for donald trumps supporters to know we are not stifling his freedom of speech  we are here to contribute to the dialogue"
 
The protest has been very peaceful today. No problems what so ever even though there were some Trump supporters camped out right down the way.
