Many Americans mark ‘Not My President's Day’

This Presidents Day, many Americans across the country rallied against President Donald Trump for what they call "Not My President's Day."



The participants say they do not approve of the president's policies and executive orders, and they want the world to know that many Americans disagree with the new president.



The largest of such rallies was here in New York, with more than 10,000 people reportedly gathered around Columbus Circle in Manhattan. Demonstrators periodically chanted "Lock him up," a play on chants at the president's campaign rallies that were directed at his opponent, Hillary Clinton.



Other demonstrations popped up in cities around the country, including Los Angeles and Chicago, outside Trump-owned hotels. Other cities had much smaller demonstrations, with just dozens attending a rally in Austin, Texas.



Some of the participants say they plan more rallies on April 15, also known as Tax Day.
