Millions of protesters have taken to the streets of cities in the US and around the globe to rally against the new US President Donald Trump. Larger numbers of demonstrators than expected turned out for more than 600 rallies worldwide.
The aim was principally to highlight women’s rights, which activists believe to be under threat from the new administration.
Meanwhile, President Trump used his first full day in office to visit the CIA’s Headquarter.
He said he was hundred percent behind the spy agency’s employees and also accused the media of being dishonest in its reporting of the size of the crowd at his inauguration.
The biggest US rally was in the capital Washington, which city officials estimated to be more than five hundred thousand strong.This far exceeded the two hundred thousand that had originally been expected by organisers of the women’s march on Washington. By most estimates, it also surpassed the crowd at Presidential inauguration.
