Washington, (IINA) - Demonstrators in major cities across the United States used a federal holiday on Monday that is meant to honor America's former presidents to protest its current office holder, according to Anadolu Agency.
The Not My President's Day rallies were the latest in a series of mass demonstrations against Donald Trump and drew thousands of people in New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Demonstrators did not have a single policy they objected to, but instead sought to put on display a mass rejection of the Trump era. As Trump's motorcade proceeded through Palm Beach, Florida, on its way back to Washington, demonstrators held signs along his route that bore the number 45 with a red slash running through it -- a reference to Trump who is the US's 45th president.
Trump handily won the Electoral College votes needed to assume office, but he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million ballots � a fact many objected to in demonstrations Monday.
"In the name of humanity, fascist America -- No! protesters in New York reportedly chanted amid the now familiar calls of the people united will never be defeated. In the nation's capital, hundreds gathered in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, some likening Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
One protester held a sign that read: My President? Nyet! using the Russian word for no. Another massive demonstration is expected April 15 � the deadline for Americans to file tax returns.
Many continue to take issue with Trump's reluctance to make his record public � a move at odds with decades of standard practice for presidential candidates, and one that critics say would shed light on Trump's financial ties with Russia.
Trump has denied any links to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia.
