President Donald Trump held two rallies Wednesday in which he stood up for healthcare reform and his revised travel ban that was blocked earlier that day.

He first spoke in metro Detroit where he focused on creating jobs. The President spoke about a review of federal auto fuel economy and emissions rules.

A review would open the door to lower fuel economy requirements, automakers argue cheap gas makes it hard to sell fuel-efficient vehicles. Top automaker executives were in attendance today.

The President then flew to Tennessee where he would honor President Andrew Jackson during his 250th birthday celebration.

During his Nashville rally, he touched on increasing border security and building a border wall.

He also said the federal court's block of his second, revised travel ban was "unprecedented judicial overreach." 

On the topic of healthcare, he said he is going to "work on bringing down the price of medicine by having a fair and competitive bidding process." 

The President's rally was met with much oppositions from multiple protests. Many of the groups were from Planned Parenthood, LGBT groups, and others who protested the President's immigration reform.

Those protesters clashed with thousands of Trump supporters who were standing in line outside the auditorium.
