Thousands of people demonstrated against the president on Monday, with a rally stretching several blocks up Central Park West starting at 61st Street. The ralliers were penned in on each block, as can be seen in this short video by Madonna.

There were also some pro-Trump people in the area, one with a large Trump sign. Aaron Renn told us he saw about 10 people in one pro-Trump group on Broadway. NBC quoted some supporters. “I support the president and I support his views,” said Asa Jonathan Lowe of Coney Island. “One of the reasons I support President Trump is his support for Israel,” said Ariel Kohane of the Upper West Side.
