"From the re-working and the repealing of the ACA act to just every cabinet position that has been so far appointed," Cafaro said. Other group members carried signs opposing President's Trump's controversial travel ban while some elaborated on Russia's involvement with the 2016 election.
Barbara Fry has attended prior rallies on "Resist Trump Tuesday." She said Graham sat down with local media Monday to answer questions and should give residents the "same courtesy he did the press."
