Protesters expressed outrage toward President Trump by marching to Mar-a-Lago
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Protesters expressed outraged outside of Mar-a-Lago Wednesday.
Around 100 people gathered for a candlelight vigil and declared they were confronting corruption and demanding democracy. Protesters said President Donald Trump is abusing his position for personal gain and facilitating corruption, which is causing the downfall of the United States.
They held a candlelight vigil on Flagler Drive, then marched on Mar-a-Lago.
Protesters said this was their chance to vocalize the need for elected officials to be held accountable for separating families, attacking the rule of law and putting donors ahead of voters.
One person was arrested for blocking traffic. The event’s organizer said he was cited because of the arrest and plans to fight in court.
