“No wall for this racist jerk! Put Americans back to work!”

Activists gathered Tuesday night to protest against Donald Trump’s national address, where he was expected to possibly declare a State of Emergency to build a wall on the southern border.

His address ultimately included no such proposal.

The activists hoped to “drown out Trump” by providing an alternative situation to pay attention to. The group played music and sang, and organizer Kristin Mink read out stories of furloughed workers from social media.
