Activists opposed to President Donald Trump gathered across the US for protests dubbed “Not my President’s Day” on a federal holiday commemorating the birthday of George Washington.
Monday protests were scheduled to happen in 29 cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Opposition of President Trump and his administration’s policies has centered on women’s reproductive rights, immigration and climate change.
“A lot of people are angry because he lost the popular vote and is ruling like somebody who won by a landslide,” Ogla Lexell, who along with 20 others helped organize the rallies in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, told CNN.
She said the rallies are intended to “keep the momentum” between the massive attendance at the Women’s March last month and the upcoming Tax Day March on April 15.
