The United States hosted the “Women’s March” against Donald trump
In Washington, new York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and in about 250 U.S. cities held protests under the name “Women’s March”. The participants criticized U.S. President Donald trump over a policy that, in their opinion, are directed against women.
They also encouraged women to participate in elections to Congress, which will take place in November this year. The largest rally was held in Los Angeles — where, at the request of the mayor of the city, on the streets about 600 thousand people, reports Reuters.
Mr. trump sarcastically supported the marchers.
“Beautiful weather throughout our great country, it is a perfect day for all women to go on the March, — he wrote in Twitter.— Rather go to celebrate milestones and unprecedented achievements in the economy and welfare that have occurred in the last 12 months. Guarantee the lowest female unemployment in 18 years!”.
According to the U.S. Department of labor, women’s unemployment rate is below average at 3.7% vs 4.1%.
