WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — There were plenty of people out to catch a glimpse of President Joe Biden’s motorcade, as well as some protesters.

Protesters were out all day, students tried to catch a glimpse of the president. All ages were out to catch this historic event.

“I’m here to see the presidential motorcade,” said Kaitlyn McNeely, of Wilkes-Barre.

She did like many others in the Diamond City Tuesday afternoon. Kaitlyn McNeely stood along South Street as president Joe Biden drove past her. A first for the Wilkes-Barre resident.

“I think regardless of your political view it’s just really cool to see what goes into the president’s places safely,” explained McNeely.

Earlier a few hundred people lined up to see president Biden speak inside Wilkes University’s Marts Center. Supporters who couldn’t get inside also lined the streets for a glimpse of the president.

“I’m out to see president Biden I think he’s doing a great job, he’s going to be one of our best presidents ever ok? He’s an honest man he’s a real man,” stated Dan Bellitto, of Wilkes-Barre.

Down the street, there were opposing views.

“Words are cheap action is what we need action, not words we need action,” stated Jerome Kuczynski, of Swoyersville.

“I’m hoping to keep a republican with values in office,” said Joe Kulakowski, of Wilkes Barre.

Protestors lined the corner of River and Market Streets throughout Biden’s arrival and departure.
