Rallies in support of President Donald Trump are planned around the nation Sunday as the president celebrates his 74th birthday, as are protests against him and his administration, USA Today reports.

Some of the biggest rallies are planned in Florida. Among the planned celebrations are convoys of trucks and motorcycles – and even golf carts in one retirement community – as well as "Trumptillas," consisting of large parades of boats decked out in red, white and blue Trump gear.

But it's not all party hats and balloons; the newspaper also reports that Trump's birthday falls as protests against police brutality and racial discrimination continue in cities across the U.S. Organizers of Sunday's protests are observing the president's birthday with calls for him to leave the White House.
