Donald Trumpis back in DC for his first public remarks there since January 6, 2021 — and there are a lot of unhappy people … many of whom were waiting to greet him at the door.
The former Prez appeared Tuesday at the Marriot Marquis Hotel as the keynote speaker for the America First Policy Institute Summit … where he said more of the same from his recent speeches — repeating lies that the election was “stolen” and teasing a run in 2024 .
What was going on just outside, however, was far more interesting … quite a few protesters had infiltrated the building and lined several floors inside the hotel, most of them shouting and throwing flyers around to express their displeasure that DT was there.
What they apparently shouted … “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA” – and the pieces of paper they threw read: “INDICT TRUMP PROTECT DEMOCRACY.”
Unclear if any of these people actually breached the conference room where Trump was speaking, but if not, you have to imagine they made a bit of a disturbance. Outside, it was just as rowdy with even more protesters lining the streets … on both sides of the Trump line.
It just turns out the man is still as divisive as ever — and stepping foot in our nation’s capital is sure to set people off one way or another. And it has probably just begun.
