Anti-Trump, Anti-Racism Rallies Across US

Anti-Trump, Anti-Racism Rallies Across US

Shouting “Shame! Shame! Shame!” anti-Trump protesters awaited the president’s arrival in New York City as he returned Monday night for the first time since taking office. Shortly after 9 pm, the president’s motorcade pulled up to Trump Tower, approaching from a direction that bypassed the demonstrators, CNN reported.
Hours before, protesters and a small group of supporters behind police barricades lined up across the street from Trump Tower and along the nearby blocks on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue. As supporters carrying American flags shouted, “God bless President Trump,” anti-Trump protesters chanted, “No KKK, No Fascist USA, No Trump!”
Three people were arrested amid the protests Monday evening at Trump Tower, New York Police Department detective Hubert Reyes told CNN. All three have been charged with reckless engagement, obstructing government administration, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Reyes said.
The protests came in the wake of clashes Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, as counter-protesters met white nationalists and other right-wing groups at the site of a “Unite the Right” event. Counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed when a car rammed into a crowd walking down a street.
