PressTV-Americans protest against ‘Trump’s fake natl. emergency’

Thousands of people have thronged the streets across the United States on Presidents’ Day to express their outrage at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a “fake” national emergency which is aimed at funding his controversial border wall.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the White House on Monday chanting, “Trump is the national emergency!” while others held up large letters spelling out “Stop power grab.”

In New York City, hundreds converged on Manhattan park while chanting “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here.” They also held up signs that called for Trump’s impeachment.

A smaller group of protesters in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, carried signs that read “No wall! #FakeTrumpEmergency.”
