An anti-lockdown group that calls itself “Liberate Minnesota” held a protest Friday afternoon outside Democratic Gov. Tim Walz’s home in St. Paul to show their opposition to the state’s extension of their stay-at-home order to May 4.

“Now is the time to demand Governor Walz and our state legislators end this lock down!”. “Minnesota’s economy must be opened for business or destroying the livelihoods of thousands of Minnesota citizens and their families may result if we don’t act quickly.”

President Trump supported the “Liberate Minnesota” movement in a tweet on Friday afternoon.

As promised several hundred people gathered together outside of the Governor’s house to protest the stay-at-home order.

Governor Walz responded to the protests during his daily press conference.
