Trump met by protests as he returns to New York

<p>US President Donald Trump has returned to his home in New York City for the first time since taking office in January. But if he was expecting a warm welcome, it wasn’t to be – instead, thousands of protestors lined the streets of Manhattan, chanting “New York hates you” and “Shame”. </p> <p>Trump’s motorcade managed to avoid the crowd by approaching Trump Tower from another direction. </p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Chants of “New York hates you” outside Trump Tower <a href="https://t.co/oIzC8QqIw7">pic.twitter.com/oIzC8QqIw7</a></p>— EJ Fox (@mrejfox) <a href="https://twitter.com/mrejfox/status/897232371963105283">August 14, 2017</a></blockquote><br /> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>Earlier in the day, Trump forcefully condemned the white nationalists responsible for a violent rally over the weekend that left one person dead and dozens injured. </p> <p>Trump’s denunciation of the groups that make up some of his most passionate supporters followed days of criticism after his initial response blamed “many sides” for the violence. </p> <p>Since the president’s initial statement on the Charlottesville, Virginia, attack, three members of a White House business panel have resigned in protest of Trump’s half-hearted reaction to the racially motivated violence. Trump has also faced vocal criticism from across the political spectrum.</p>
