Donald Trump has not been popular among many groups. He was the first sitting president to attend the Veterans Day parade. Yet the boos could be heard above the reporters on site. This is what greeted POTUS.
@business White House reporter sent out this tweet about Donald Trump’s speech at the Veterans Day event. There was a huge “Impeach” sign across the street from the event:
‘POTUS about to speak at Veterans Day event in Madison Square Park. There’s an “Impeach” sign in skyscraper across street’
There were many forms of dissent among the protesters: die-ins, sit-ins, protests, rallies, marches, and banners at the Statue of Liberty.
The New Yorkers have been especially vocal about the man who just moved his place of residency from New York to Florida. They have favored Trump Tower, but there have also been protests all across the city.
These included: “Trump International Hotel and Tower, Stonewall National Monument, Battery Park, Tompkins Square Park, Washington Square Park, Times Square and outside Kennedy Airport.” according to AMNY.com.
Protesters cited the White House’s policies on immigration as their primary source of anger. They have also protested against him during his United Nations General Assembly speech. In addition, many of the protesters have supported the Democratic House’s impeachment inquiry.
The Rise and Resist group planned in a silent protest in Washington Square Park. They intended to bring “our NO RAIDS/CLOSE THE CAMPS/ABOLISH ICE banners, photographs of the children who have died in ICE custody, and photographs of the detention camps.”
They will also have printed flyers to hand out to the crowd, and the press was invited. The group invited people from their Facebook page:
‘Join Rise and Resist in a silent protest in Washington Square Park. Stand with us for an hour to object to Border Patrol and ICE terrorizing immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. Tell your friends, acquaintances and co-workers to join us.’
