Women and men of all ages came together to protest President Trump on Monday evening. Some held signs that read “Trump Loves Hate” and “Two Days Too Late,” referring to Trump’s decision to not condemn the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville until two days after the riot broke out.
Several protesters carried signs that read “No. The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go.”
At least one person standing in direct view of Trump Tower in Manhattan held a sign that appeared to be a swastika on first glance. However, the sign was actually a crossed out “45.”
Others standing on the streets chanted things like, “New York hates you.”
People of all ages and backgrounds walked up and down the sidewalks carrying anti-Trump signs.
