PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Hundreds gathered outside the Arizona State Capitol building Saturday as part of a nationwide effort to show support for President Donald Trump.  

The rally in Phoenix included speakers, militiamen dressed as military members, and motorcycle riders to add an extra layer of security, according to one organizer.

"We're all first amendment supporters and we like everybody to stay engaged but also to discuss in a very peaceful toned down manner," said Eric Cashman with Riders USA.

There were a number of DPS troopers overseeing the event which officially ended at 3 p.m.

There were a couple of counter-protestors that argued with Trump supporters but there were no arrests and the rally was otherwise peaceful.
