Protesters In Hawaii Troll Trump For His Racist Obama-Birtherism With ‘Welcome To Kenya’ Signs




Protesters in Hawaii greeted President Trump with signs reading “not my Cheeto” and “welcome to Kenya,” a reference to Trump’s “birther” conspiracy theory that former President Obama wasn’t born in the United States and therefore was not a legitimate president.

Stopping in Hawaii en route to his five-country, nearly two-week trip to Asia for meetings with key allies in the region, Trump visited the Pearl Harbor memorial on Saturday.

Trump said that he has not yet been to the floating memorial of the Pearl Harbor attack, and said that the visit “is going to be very exciting for me.”

“I’ve read about, spoken about, heard about, studied, but I haven’t seen” the site, he said.

“I tell you, this is very special being in Hawaii,” Trump said as he visited Pacific Command before traveling with First Lady Melania Trump to the Arizona memorial, where he took part in a wreath-laying ceremony.



Hundreds of demonstrators banged drums and chanted against Trump’s travel ban in front of the state Capitol.

“Welcome to Kenya” and “No, Trump, HI is Obama’s birthplace,” some of the signs read. “Aloha also means goodbye” and “So bad you make Bush look good,” said others.
