Crowds rally at March for Truth in DC and dozens of cities

Crowds rally at March for Truth in DC and dozens of cities

Thousands more protested in more than 100 cities across the country, including New York, Pittsburgh and Chicago.

Protesters gathered at the Washington Monument for the March for Truth on Saturday in Washington, D.C. Rallies and marches are taking place across the country to call for urgent investigation into possible Russian interference in the U.S. election and ties to U.S. President Donald Trump and his administration. Attendees at the pro-Trump rally expressed support for the president's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris Climate Accord. They called for an independent investigation on his dealings with Russian Federation and the full release of his tax returns to reveal potential conflicts of interest.

The protests come ahead of testimony by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee scheduled for June 8.

The name of their rally references Trump's comment that he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", which Press Secretary Sean Spicer rendered on Twitter as, "I was elected by voters of Pittsburgh, not Paris". Crowds gathered in several American cities in the name of Trump.

Supporters said their voices are no less important.

While holding a sign that read "Trump Lies Matter", Dickerson said her mother supports the president, causing contention between the two.

She talks openly about being from a small Israeli city, Rosh Haayin, and her love of the Israeli character. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston. "There are not many female superheroes", said Gadot.

The crowd gathered to celebrate the President's decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Sarsour said she agreed with the call for an impartial investigation into alleged Russian connections, but implored the protesters not to let Russia distract them from other issues like healthcare and civil rights.

Protesters also want Trump to release his tax returns.

Public advocate Tish James welcomed Trump's supporter, who James refers to as "Agent Orange". "The Women's March stands side by side with the March for Truth because when we fight for truth, we are also fighting for the undocumented communities, for women, for our Muslim brothers and sisters and our planet".
