As Trump Returns To NYC Tonight, Protesters Welcome Him With Chants Of ‘New York Hates You’




Following a white supremacist attack in Charlottesville, Va. that left one counter-protester dead this past weekend, protesters took to the streets outside of Trump Tower on Monday to welcome President Trump back to New York City.

Video shows demonstrators chanting, “New York hates you” outside of Trump Tower.

Just before 6:30 p.m. on Monday, the president wrote on Twitter that he was heading to New York City.



Other chants from protesters waiting for Trump included “this is what democracy looks like.”

The Hill added:

In Charlottesville on Saturday, a suspect drove a car into a crowd of peaceful counter-protesters, killing a young woman and injuring others. A 20-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder, failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death, and malicious wounding.

Trump came under scrutiny for his response to the Charlottesville attack, which he initially blamed on violence from “many sides.”

The president in a Monday statement sought to clean up the controversy, specifically condemning the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis who participated in the rally, after lawmakers slammed him for not providing a stronger response.
