President Donald Trump on Sunday sarcastically undermined the public opposition and then defended demonstrators’ rights a short time later.
White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway told ABC’s “This Week” says the public doesn’t care whether the president releases his tax returns.
Kellyanne Conway said Trump press secretary Sean Spicer was merely offering “alternative facts” about the size of the inauguration crowd.
Spicer, who offered no evidence to support the claim, was following up on comments Trump had made earlier in the day at CIA headquarters.
Many traveled from Illinois, some came alone, others brought – or met up with – their families.
Trump quickly shifted from praising the CIA to slamming media coverage of Inauguration Day; he claimed the crowd was bigger than photos indicated.
The women brandished signs (“Women won’t back down”) and decried Trump’s stand on several issues, including health care and climate change.
