In New York on Saturday, Jake Rowland, 46, held a sign with an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin wearing a red Trump campaign "Make America Great Again" cap. "The legitimacy of the United States government hinges on the answers to these questions".

BEDMINSTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A few hundred protesters are rallying against President Donald Trump near one of his New Jersey golf clubs.

"In a speech from the Rose Garden Thursday, Trump said", I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris".

The demonstrators shouted "Pittsburgh not Paris" and "jobs, jobs, jobs" in a show of support for Trump's decision. One gentleman carried a sign that said "Pittsburgh and Paris".

"It's so blatant. Any other person in office would have been out by now", Margolin said. So for me, the investigation is about Russian Federation, of course, and the myriad connections between Trump's people and Russian Federation, but it's also about fact versus fiction.

Several of the protesters held signs decrying Trump's recent move to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Accord.

But it was the March for Truth that drew the biggest crowds of the day. The official event, which was scheduled to run from 11 a.m.to 2 p.m., included appearances by Representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland, women's rights activist Linda Sarsour and a formerspeechwriter for President Barack Obama, Jon Lovett. "Donald Trump has a staff infection and it's spreading everyday". James asked them to join in with the protest.

Around 25 people associated with the group stood behind police barricades and traded insults with more than 200 counter-protesters, police Sgt. Robyn VanDerLeest said.

In addition, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to probe whether Trump campaign aides illegally colluded with Russian Federation.

In what was expected to be the largest demonstration of the day, protestors gathered on the National Mall near the Washington Monument.

"The fact that this man could be president for four years scares me to death", he said.
