Trump critics, backers march around globe over climate and Russian Federation

Among many events planned for this weekend is the March for Truth, a rally to demand an independent investigation into President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Their objectives as outlined on Twitter call for an independent commission, which must operate with "transparency", to investigate ties between Trump and Russian Federation.

Organizers said they were demanding honesty from President Donald Trump's administration. They were met by counter-protesters, including anti-Trump protesters. They are also calling on Congress to force the president to release his tax returns, and are seeking prosecution for "any crimes or collusion" uncovered.

The "March for Truth" is the latest in a number of weekend anti-Trump protests since his election, including the Women's March in January and the March for Science in April.

"Therefore, we are organizing a group to demonstrate our support for President Trump and his fearless leadership", it added.

The appointment came after Trump decided last May to dismiss FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into the possible collusion with Russian Federation, something the president has called a "witch hunt" against him without any basis in fact.

Then the demonstrators took to East Pine Street, escorted by police officers on bicycles and led by the Free Instruments of Karma marching band.

Bert Gagnon, a retired NASA employee from Mechanicsville, Maryland, said he came to Lafayette Square to show support for Trump.

BEDMINSTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A few hundred protesters are rallying against President Donald Trump near one of his New Jersey golf clubs. That was a clear reference to Trump's remarks this week that he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" as a justification for pulling out of the Paris climate agreement. James asked them to join in with the protest. "I can't believe that this is what America has become".

Anne Bedrick of New Rochelle, New York, carried an upside down American flag, which she said symbolized "a country in distress".

Outside the White House, a Pittsburgh pro-Trump march didn't draw the numbers of the nationwide event.
