Yesterday was President’s Day and it struck a nerve with those who still aren’t here for Donald Trump being America’s 45th President.
In response, people took to the streets to protest Number 45, chanting “Not My President”. While the protest in response to Trump’s administration have happened in some form or fashion since he took office 4 weeks ago, these protests on President’s Day showed just how much Americans aren’t feeling 45.
Official “Not My President” protests were scheduled in LA, NYC, and CHicago, and many cities across the countries followed suit.
A statement on Facebook by the NYC protest organizers said this:
“Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests. We will be staging a rally at Columbus Circle to protest the un-American policies of the current White House.”
Demonstrators also highlighted points of the protests on social media using the hashtag #NotMyPresidentsDay.
