(KNSI) - A group is looking for people to volunteer to protect President Donald Trump supporters during the rally Thursday at Target Center.
Leaders of The Oath Keepers say rally goers and Trump supporters need protection from radical leftist groups planning to disrupt the event.
According to the Oath Keepers' website, they are a non-partisan group of current and former military members, police officers and first responders who "pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
The Southern Poverty Law Center has classified the Oath Keepers as a radical anti-government organization.
The Oath Keepers was founded in 2009.
