MISSOULA – While supporters of President Trump gather for Thursday evening’s rally, others are voicing their protest.

One of the most visible signs of protest can be seen high above Missoula on Mount Jumbo where anti-Trump protesters added some extra letters to the “L”.

The word “LIAR” is now spelled out on Mount Jumbo.

Additionally, a “Love Trumps Hate Rally” is planned to take place from 2:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. The event will begin at Playfair Park with participants then marching to the Missoula County Fairgrounds.

Organizers say that Missoula Mayor John Engen will be the opening speaker and is set to speak at 4:30 p.m.

President Trump is set to host a rally at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday outside a Minuteman Aviation hangar at the Missoula International Airport.
