Protestors determined to keep President Donald Trump from getting a good night’s sleep after his controversial summit in Helsinki called in big shots for Day Three of #OccupyLafayettePark on Wednesday night—an 18-person Mariachi band crowd-funded in under 30 minutes by Twitter users.
After two days of protests drew hundreds of people to Pennsylvania Avenue to “welcome” Trump home from talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin that critics have denounced as appeasement, former top aides to Trump’s 2016 election opponent Hillary Clinton kept the momentum going by finding a Mariachi band to join in. The band started playing in front of the White House around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The Washington, D.C. protest was one of a series of anti-Trump gatheringsacross the country Wednesday night.
