March in NY presses Trump on diversity, democracy

People shout slogans as they attend a protest against US President-elect Donald in front of Trump Tower on November 19, 2016 in New YorkMore than a thousand demonstrators marched Saturday in New York from the Queens borough where President-elect Donald Trump was born to Trump Tower, calling for diversity and the defense of democratic values. Marchers crossed the bridge that connects Queens to Manhattan under a sunny sky before arriving outside the home and transition headquarters of the real estate developer and ex-reality TV host. “We know that our diversity makes us stronger: Trump may have grown up here, he is no longer Queens today,” said openly gay New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, who is from Queens and called for the march.
