This week, there are multiple protests against Trump occurring across the globe.

The first protest took place on Monday in Haiti.




More than 1,000 people were seen marching toward the embassy. However, they couldn’t reach the gates because of the barricades that were set in place by police. Some were seen trying to remove the barriers. The protests became so intense that the U.S. Embassy in Haiti was forced to close. Some protesters held signs that called Trump a “shithole president” and other signs were calling on Americans to “stop racist hate speech.”

The police officers were seen wearing full riot gear with helmets, shields and knee pads. Protesters were throwing rocks at the police and the officers were also forced to use tear gas.

The demonstrators took to the streets to protest Trump’s “shithole” comment. Trump later pushed back on the claim and denied he is a racist.




The second protest took place on Tuesday in Switzerland. Thousands of anti-capitalist demonstrators marched to the streets of Zurich and other major cities to protest Trump’s planned visit to the World Economic Forum.

Another 2,000 were seen carrying anti-globalist and environmentalist signs that read, “No Trump, no coal, no gas, no fossil fuels.” They march toward Zurich’s financial district, which bankers warned to steer clear of.

Demonstrators were heard chanting “Trump Not Welcome” and “Smash WEF!” Other signs that were seen read, “Who was the Shithole? In public squares, signs that were seen read, “World Economic Fiasco”, “racist sexist capitalist” and “Don’t touch women’s rights.”
