Hundreds show up for Denver's March for Truth

Hundreds show up for Denver's March for Truth

Chalupa said protesters in NY also planned to lay a wreath at the Bowling Green subway station, in reference to Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway's statements about the so-called Bowling Green Massacre, which didn't, in fact, take place. Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell applauded the protesters from the back of a red pickup truck on Saturday morning in Bedminster Township where an effigy to Trump was covered by an American flag.

Organizers are calling for an independent commission to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections and possible ties to President Trump.

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", Trump said Thursday in announcing that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, in which industrial nations have agreed to limit greenhouses gases. They called for an independent investigation on his dealings with Russian Federation and the full release of his tax returns to reveal potential conflicts of interest.

They took place just days before the highly anticipated appearance June 8 before a Senate committee of James Comey, who as FBI director was leading an investigation of the Russian Federation matter before Trump fired him early in May. A "Pittsburgh, not Paris" rally is being held in Lafayette Square across from the White House in celebration of the USA withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

March for Truth organizers, however, are adamant that they're ready to fight the current administration on multiple fronts, including health care, immigration and the environment, but that the pressure needs to remain on the Russian Federation investigations.

Bert Gagnon, a retired NASA employee from Mechanicsville, Maryland, said he came to Lafayette Square to show support for Trump.




One Twitter comment on the #MarchForTruth handle said, "Donald Trump believes in a sad, small-minded America..."

This marked the latest in a series of anti-Trump rallies, including the Women's March, Tax March, and March for Science.

In fact, Mayor Bill Peduto on Friday joined the mayors of some 175 other US cities and the governors of several states in announcing that his city would follow the terms of the Paris treaty. "We're not going to put up with it", said one protester.

"The amusing thing is about protesting is that it makes you feel better as a person and as a citizen to be with other people who are thinking and acting", Snyder told ABC News.

Public advocate Tish James welcomed Trump's supporter, who James refers to as "Agent Orange".

The Trump supporters included Vince Harrison, 56, a burly retired firefighter from Washington, who said it was his first rally ever.
