With no end in sight when it comes to Donald Trump and his administration’s ties to Russia, thousands of Americans took to the streets on Saturday to ‘March for Truth’ and demand an “urgent investigation” into the president and his associates.
“We call for a #MarchForTruth on Saturday, June 3rd to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that Americans want answers,” the ‘March for Truth’ website explains. “The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.”
The demonstrations took place in cities all across the country, but New York City – Trump’s backyard – saw some of the largest crowds.

Donald Trump and his associates may want this scandal to go away, but the American people are as adamant as ever to get to the bottom of this scandal and hold the administration accountable for its ties to Russia and the subsequent cover-up of those ties.
Trump can try to change the subject all he wants with incoherent tweets, but thousands of Americans stood up on Saturday to tell him that they won’t rest until the full truth comes out.
