Contrasting Trump rallies meet outside Trump Tower before his visit

One day before President Trump’s expected visit to his city home, rallies supporting and denouncing him gathered in Midtown on Sunday.

“Go home, losers!” one Trump supporter yelled, waving two American flags.

“Donald Trump has got to go!” anti-Trump protesters chanted outside Trump Tower.

Barricades and police officers separated the demonstrators, who were across the street from each other, outside Trump Tower.

But the pro-Trump rally, which consisted of dozens of people in the afternoon, diminished to a few people by 7 p.m.
