On Friday, Donald and Melania arrived in Hawaii before their two-week trip to five Asian countries.

When he landed, he was greeted by Gov. David Ige. His trip to Hawaii will include visiting military officials at Pacific command, a Pearl Harbor tour, and a wreath ceremony.

While Trump made his way around Hawaii, he was expected to be met with large crowds of anti-Trump protesters. Many protesting crowds have already gathered along the streets where he’s expected to be traveling.

At the state Capitol, there were hundreds of people who gathered to protest his visit, holding signs that read, “Welcome to Kenya,” “Aloha means goodbye,” and “Immigration gave me my family.”

Also on Saturday, another anti-Trump demonstration is said to take place. Trump has the lowest approval ratings in Hawaii.

Trump’s trip comes as there are growing tensions of nuclear threats from North Korea. He is expected to meet with governors of five territories that are most vulnerable to a nuclear attack. In the state, emergency preparedness officials are holding seminars for residents so they can be ready if North Korea hits them with a missile.

Trump is scheduled to depart Hawaii Saturday morning to head over to Japan. He is expected to stop in China, South Korea and Vietnam. While he is in Asia, he is expected to meet with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders group and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
