Protester Confronts Trump With ‘YOUR A FAILURE’ Sign

President Donald Trump has spent a huge amount of time at properties branded with his own name while in office. According to a tracker from NBC News, on at least 269 days of his presidency, Trump has spent some time at a golf course owned by his family business. This Sunday, he went golfing yet again, although the U.S. continues to face serious crises like the Coronavirus pandemic and the reported bounties that Russian authorities put on American troops. When Trump arrived at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, this Sunday, his motorcade was reportedly confronted by protesters including one holding a sign calling on Trump to resign.

A reporter with the White House press pool shared:

‘The motorcade has arrived at Trump National Golf Club, in Sterling, Virginia… As we drove up, your pooler saw a handful of protesters holding signs including one calling President Trump a “HUGE FAILURE” and another calling on him to “RESIGN.”’

Trump has never seemed fond of protests. At one point, around the time of protests against his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, Trump even suggested to one conservative reporter that protests should be banned in the U.S. altogether. That ban would, of course, seriously infringe upon the Constitutionally-protected right to free speech, but Trump doesn’t seem to particularly care.

He repeatedly wheels out grandiose, melodramatic conspiracy theories about his opponents. For instance, he once suggested that protesters who had confronted then-Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) as he boarded an elevator were secretly paid by George Soros. At the time, he tweeted:

‘The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love!’

Although Trump likes to dismiss protesters as supposedly irrelevant, the reality is that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads Trump in many polls on the national level and in individual swing states.
