Thousands of anti-Donald Trump activists are currently protesting the divisive candidate in Arizona ahead of their upcoming primary on Tuesday and also in his home state of New York today [Saturday, March 19].
The streets of midtown Manhattan saw protesters converge in front of one of Trump’s signature buildings, playing drums, chanting and waving signs like “Love Trumps Hate” and “Will trade 1 Donald Trump for 25,000 refugees.”
The protest was organized by political group Cosmopolitan Antifascists.
“Trump’s policies threaten many of us in the Black, Latino, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, and other communities,” the group said in a Facebook post for the planned protest. “These policies and type of speech has no place in this country, and certainly does not have a place in the city that Trump grew his empire in–a city known as a melting pot and home for many of the same people Trump continues to wage war on.”
