Protesters continue to unite outside of the White House but their tactics are less than admirable. They’ve taken to screaming, blowing whistles, sounding off air-horns and even included a Mariachi band in their efforts.
Protesters are also free to “bang pots & pans” until 4 a.m. EST, Reines wrote on Twitter.
Reines said Tuesday that the first day of the so-called “Occupy Lafayette Park” demonstrations on Monday night had successfully kept President Trump awake. Lafayette Park is just north of the White House grounds, Fox News reported.
According to The Hill, protesters greeted President Trump as he returned from his summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, with dozens gathering outside the White House and yelling “traitor” late into the night.
The impromptu protest, dubbed #OccupyLafayettePark, came after Trump’s controversial press conference with Putin. During the joint presser, Trump refused to denounce Russia’s 2016 election meddling and said both countries were to blame for the current low point in U.S.-Russia relations.
Meanwhile, in Time Square, New York, liberals have rewritten the beloved American classic “America The Beautiful” to some abominable ‘dump-Trump’ chorus.
President Trump has clarified his standpoint on Russian meddling but the mainstream media has chosen to ignore his statements- and so the circus continues.
“Very strong on the fact that we can’t have meddling, we can’t have any of that,” Trump answered when asked by CBS News on Tuesday what he told Putin in Helsinki regarding reports about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“I let him know we can’t have this, we’re not going to have it, and that’s the way it’s going to be,” he continued.
Sanders was then pressed to clarify whether the White House believes the threat is ongoing.
“Since there’s currently not an election today, not specifically, but we certainly believe that we are taking steps to make sure they can’t do it again,” she initially said, before adding: “We believe that the threat still exists which is why we are taking steps to prevent it.”
It was the second instance in as many days of the White House going back to clarify a presidential comment and suggesting a misunderstanding – first claiming Trump misspoke, and this time claiming he was not responding to the question asked.
Sanders stressed, though, that, “I’m interpreting what the president said, I’m not reversing it.”
