USA: 'Donald Trump not welcome here' - Anti-Trump rally draws hundreds as President returns to NYC

United States, New York City
August 15, 2017 at 04:01 GMT -00:00 · Published

Hundreds protesters gathered outside New York City's Trump Tower, Monday, to condemn displays of racial hatred and acts of violence by white nationalists which took place in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

The crowd expressed their dissatisfaction with the US President speech following the deadly incident with slogans such as "No hate, no fear, Donald Trump is not welcomed here.''

"He basically blamed the woman who died this weekend for her own death. So we're to come out and show that we were not gonna stand for that," said one of the protesters.

The protest comes as Donald Trump returns to his home in New York City first time after taking the office seven months ago.

A wave of demonstrations was sparked by violent clashes in Charlottesville on Saturday which erupted between counter-demonstrators and self-proclaimed neo-Nazi, Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist groups that left one person dead and scores more injured.

US President Donald Trump's statement condemning the violence was heavily criticised for not directly and specifically condemning white supremacist groups for the unrest. Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were among those to call on the president to be more specific in his condemnation. The White House issued a clarification saying Trump's criticism was meant to include neo-Nazi groups and the Ku Klux Klan.
