This week St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman made headines by firing back on social media against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. Trump said the U.S. should stop letting Muslims into the country, to which Kriseman responded on Twitter that Trump should be barred from St. Petersburg.

But at least one Floridian is upset at Kriseman. Miami Beach resident Bob Kunst, president of Shalom International, protested outside St. Petersburg City Hall Friday.


Kunst says Kriseman is not welcome at his rally for Israel and victims of attacks by Muslims. It begins at 11:00 a.m. Sunday in Sarasota near the giant waterfront statue of the kissing soldier.
