impeachment push

Anti- and pro-Trump demonstrators square off in impeachment protests

Thousands of people rallied in several cities across the country on Sunday to call on Congress to impeach President Trump. In Los Angeles, several thousand people marched carrying signs saying "Worst President Ever" and "We demand the truth," and chanting, "Down, down, down with Trump — up, up, up with the people." "Every day when I wake up, something is more terrible than it was yesterday," said protester John Meranda, 56, of Long Beach. In many of the cities, the demonstrations were met with counter-protests by Trump supporters. "There's no reason at this point to impeach the president. He's committed no crimes. There's no reason," Jake Lloyd, who backs the president, said in Austin, Texas. "I don't think they understand what impeachment is."
