One has to wonder if there’s anywhere Trump will ever go where the billionaire president will receive a warm welcome. Well, we know for sure that it’s not in New York after Trump just landed there.
Protesters are greeting Trump outside of a venue where he’s holding a fundraiser chanting, “New York hates Trump.” One protestor, John Eng, a 54-year-old real estate agent from Manhattan, said, “I believe it’s time to stop lining the pockets of the rich and stealing from the poor. Protester were particularly upset at the $1.2 trillion tax bill, which opponents say benefits the rich. Trump is expected to attend two other fundraisers later in the day.
The controversial president is expected to be met with a barrage of protests from his home state, which doesn’t seem to be proud of this fact. Here are some of the many protests happening in New York as reported by amNew York:

And let us all be thankful for our right and responsibility of free expression.”
Protests have been a constant theme for Trump. In November, former President Obama’s home state of Hawaii pummeled the president with a series of protests around the state:

Trump is even protested around the world. During his trip to Asia earlier this month, he was met with thousands of people in the Philippines.

The protests that follow Trump around are indicative of the fact that people in the U.S. and around the world are growing tired of his proposed policies and racist statements. People are saying no to Donald Trump.
