Mientras el Presidente Trump se dirigía a los Republicanos que asistieron al retiro del Gran Viejo Partido (GOP por sus siglas en inglés) en Filadelfia, varios miles de manifestantes tomaron las calles para expresar su descontento.

Mientras el presidente se enfocaba en tocar temas familiares a los de su campaña, incluyendo el ayudar a los trabajadores Americanos, acabar con la inmigración ilegal y reconstruir la fuerza armada nacional, los manifestantes estaban afuera protestando por todo: desde los derechos migratorios hasta los reproductivos.

Philadelphia DA was recently fine $62,000 for ethicfs violations and not reporting five sources of income and 89 gifts on city financial statements over six years.
