Protestors gather outside hall where Trump speaks

Rick Pluta

Hundreds of demonstrators waved signs and chanted slogans as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump addressed a business lunch inside a Detroit convention center.

Jan Tjernlund carried a sign that said “Trump the Divider.” She says she doesn’t like what Trump has had to say about women, minorities, and immigration.

She says Trump doesn’t understand government and is temperamentally unfit to serve, and she has fears for the nation’s stability if he’s elected.

"I am concerned about the future of everything," Tjernlund says.

Meanwhile, some of Michigan’s Republican leaders hope Trump’s visit will help re-set the presidential campaign and efforts to win the state where polls show Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton currently holds a substantial lead.

She will visit the area Thursday to deliver a message in her jobs plan.
