The First 100 Days

The first 100 days of the Trump administration ended on April 29, 2017.During the hundred days there were marches and protests almost daily in communities in the Untied States and around the world protesting the new administration’s policies that are designed to roll back 80 years of progress of human and economic rights in this country. Some protests like the Womens’ March, the opposition to Trump’s attempts to curtail immigration into the country by Muslim’s from certain countries,the march in support of Muslims in New York City,the march in Washington D.C. in support of existing policies seeking to end human made climate change drew hundreds of thousands of people.

There were almost daily  smaller demonstrations and town halls around the country that drew many ordinary citizens, some of whom never before were involved in the political process, who wanted to make their views publicly known to their congress people and other government officials. It was democracy at its finest.
