The most unpopular president-elect in history is going to be greeted by waves of protesters as he begins his term in office.
Protesters have reserved six times more parking permits for buses (1,800) for the Women’s March on Washington than Trump supporters have requested for the inauguration.
NBC4 in Washington, D.C. reported, “Councilmember Charles Allen told News4 about 200 permits were requested for the inauguration on Friday, Jan. 20. The city has received about 1,800 permits for the following day, Jan. 21, when thousands are expected to attend the Women’s March on Washington in protest of President-elect Donald Trump.”
The Women’s March on Washington is going to send Trump and the GOP a message, “In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”
It is no surprise that the most unpopular president-elect in history is going to be met by waves of protesters as soon as he takes office. With a 37% job approval rating, few Americans are rejoicing over Trump’s presidency.
The Women’s March on Washington should be an impressive display of what a real movement looks like. America isn’t going to sit back and take it from Trump and the GOP. Thousands of buses will be heading to Washington, D.C. to show Trump that when people put their voices together, they speak louder than any tweet from the president.
