WATCH: Cher's FULL Speech at Anti Trump NYC Protest On Inauguration Eve - Video

 

Last night on the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration thousands of defiant New Yorkers filled President-elect’s backyard Thursday in solidarity and as a statement of protest.

Joined by celebrities, government leaders and union organizers, angry protesters flooded Columbus Circle, Broadway and several blocks of Central Park West.

Demonstrators, led by filmmaker Michael Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Robert De Niro and Sally Field, and Cher crowded in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower to speak about a variety of issues including health care, labor rights, climate change and protection for immigrants, lesbians and gays

“We stand together, making sure there is no hatred in our city, in any city,” Mayor de Blasio said. “Donald Trump always said he built a movement. Well, now it’s our turn to build a movement.”
