Utahns turn out for Not My President's Day rally

Their messages "ranged from concerns about attacks on scientific research and illegal immigration to the more generic 'Love Trumps Hate.'" People chanted "Water is life" - the slogan for environmental protests at Standing Rock, N.D. - and 'Black lives matter, ' " wrote the Post's Susan Svrluga.

It wasn't just the nation's biggest cities that saw protests. "I mean he is America's president".

On this Presidents' Day, which celebrates the achievements of America's past leaders, thousands of protesters rallied to send a message of defiance to the current president. "I am so excited that Donald Trump is President".

They plan to demonstrate just that during "Spirit of America" rallies across the country February 27 and March 4. Demonstrations were held in cities around the USA this weekend to support Muslim Americans and to protest Trump's immigration policies.

Recent anti-Trump protests have included a "general strike" on Friday, a day after thousands of immigrants across the United States stayed away from work and school to highlight the contributions of foreign-born residents to the USA economy. "What I'm seeing, especially being as old as I am, is the fantastic interest of people who have never been activist", she said.

It was the fifth straight day of protests in Gotham against Trump. Of the seven countries targeted in the ban he said, "These countries do have ties to terrorism: they have been terrorized by the United States military".

To join the 3,500 people attending the rally in Chicago, head to the northeast corner of Wabash Street and Wacker Drive, which is across from the Trump Tower. And I feel that this country is made up of all immigrants, and it belongs to all immigrants.

Most students, school employees, and government workers took Monday off work due to the federal holiday.

"As human beings it is our job to stand up and fight back when we believe something is wrong", said a protester named Artemis.

"We would like this administration to know that we do not stand for or support these hateful policies that are being put in place", Khavafipour says. She said politics is discussed more in her classrooms, but not too much "because it can lead to arguments".

In Atlanta, anti-Trump organizers are planning an "ImPEACH Now" protest march.

As these protests take place all over the country on Monday, they act as reminders that Trump is only one person.

But there was another rally 15 miles away, in Lexington, which supported President Trump.
