NOT NEW YORK'S PRESIDENT

Scenes from Donald Trump’s Homecoming Rally: “New York Hates You”

On Monday night in New York, more than a thousand New Yorkers and tourists gathered once again to protest at Trump Tower—this time, with the president in attendance, for the first time since his inauguration. His homecoming was an unfortunately special occasion in more ways than one: It also marked the public’s most direct opportunity to air their frustrations directly at Trump for his much delayed condemnation of violent white supremacists over the weekend, when a woman was killed and 19 more were injured at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. But it was so much more, the airing of so many grievances built up over the last excruciating eight months. Unsurprisingly, a man not known for his thick skin, Trump reportedly snuck in through the tower’s back entrance, making sure the crowds added “coward” and “shame” to chants like “New York hates you” that had been resounding down Fifth Avenue for nearly six hours throughout the night.
