Hundreds of tractor and truck owners took to the streets of rural Minnesota to protest governmental overreach this week. Citizens of Wadena, which is about an hour outside of Minneapolis, gathered to voice their frustrations with the governor’s ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
The latest orders included mask mandates, church and school closures, and new restrictions placed on an upcoming rodeo.
“Trump 2020” and American flags were displayed during the large gathering in the city, which is well known for its MAGA water tower.
One farmer stated he missed a full day’s work and traveled from out of town to be there.
Those in attendance expressed they are fed up with the arbitrary limitations being placed on them. They have urged the governor to stop interfering in their lives.
