Dueling Rallies, Dueling Messages: Trump Supporters and Protestors Take to the Streets

Dueling Rallies, Dueling Messages: Trump Supporters and Protestors Take to the Streets

This time it was a "March for Truth".

A protester holds signs during a rally to protest President Donald Trump on the National Mall, Saturday, June 3, 2017, in Washington.

He agreed with Trump's decision to pull the US out of the climate agreement, saying the country's leaders need to focus more on problems at home - like the nation's crumbling infrastructure.

Organizers also demanded that President Trump release his tax returns, to verify there are no business conflicts involving the Trump family.

Several hundred protesters gathered in Manhattan's Foley Square starting at 9 a.m.

"In Washington, the event will be held as a rally rather than a March, and there are plans to take an aerial photograph of the crowd forming the words 'Investigate Trump", according to The Washington Post. "So we're here standing up for the truth".




"As you know, the president has been under siege from the mainstream media and the Democrats, especially now that he put American jobs first by withdrawing from the Paris accord", reads an invitation to the rally issued by the president's campaign.

"In a speech from the Rose Garden Thursday, Trump said", I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris". "We will not go back to sleep".

"When he mentioned Pittsburgh, it touched my heart", Vincent Fusca said of Trump's use of Fusca's hometown. "It's putting people to work in Pittsburgh".

Supporters said their voices are no less important.

But Trump's decision Thursday to pull out of the Paris treaty, which is created to cut harmful emissions and slow the Earth's warming, sparked a wave of global condemnation and helped fuel some of the many protest marches on Saturday. "He's a man of his word and I respect that".

Several committees in Congress are conducting investigations into Russian involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election, and the Department of Justice named former FBI Director Robert Mueller "special counsel" in its own probe. So for me, the investigation is about Russian Federation, of course, and the myriad connections between Trump's people and Russian Federation, but it's also about fact versus fiction. Chalupa said protesters in NY also planned to lay a wreath at the Bowling Green subway station, in reference to Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway's statements about the so-called Bowling Green Massacre, which didn't, in fact, take place. "The Women's March stands side by side with the March for Truth because when we fight for truth, we are also fighting for the undocumented communities, for women, for our Muslim brothers and sisters and our planet". "I really want them to be accountable for their behaviors".
