The Hill reports:
Protesters greeted President Trump as he returned from his summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Helsinki 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. Video and photos from the rally show protesters chanting “Putin’s puppet” and “traitor” and carrying signs that read “liar.” A second #OccupyLafayettePark protest is planned for Tuesday night.
