California marchers call for impeachment of President Trump

News

LOS ANGELES (AP/KRON) — Demonstrators hoisting signs and chanting anti-Donald Trump slogans marched through San Francisco and downtown Los Angeles to urge Congress to impeach the president.

The San Francisco march was one of several similar gatherings Sunday across California and the nation. One rally took place in Austin, Texas, the state’s capital.

Organizers say they believe the president has violated the U.S. Constitution and obstructed justice.

One banner called the president an “Illegitimate Corrupt Puppet.”

Marcher John Meranda tells the Los Angeles Times he has attended five recent anti-Trump marches. The 56-year-old says he’s most recently frightened by the Republican proposal to cut billions of dollars from the Medicaid program.

A smaller group of pro-Trump protesters gathered nearby outside Los Angeles police headquarters. The Trump supporters say they’re unconcerned about allegations that Trump tried to thwart an FBI investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
