Thousands taking to the streets nationwide on Presidents Day... joining the "Not My President's Day" demonstrations against the 45th president. In Washington, D.C., protesters condemned Donald Trump on a range of issues, including his support of the Dakota Access Pipeline. (SOUNDBITE) (English) GRAY MICHAEL PARSONS, CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST, SAYING: "People, you gotta wake up. What they're doing to us in Standing Rock. That's the model of suppressing civil disobedience." Not everyone was there to denounce Trump though. Pennsylvania motorcyclist Ski Bischof rode in to stand with president. (SOUNDBITE) PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENT, SKI BISCHOF, SAYING: "Guess what, he was elected by 31 out of 50 states. Yes he is your president. You might not like it, but live with it." In New York City, hundreds of protesters marched near the Trump International Hotel, calling on Trump's impeachment. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRENDAN GAFFNEY, DEMONSTRATOR, SAYING: "I do believe his campaign colluded with the Russians and if that is the case, he should be impeached and he should be locked up. We got to get him out of the White House. He doesn't belong there." Organizers say demonstrations were expected in about 28 other cities, including Chicago and Los Angeles... with protesters vowing to keep up their pressure for as long as it takes.
