"Not My President's Day" protests erupt in major cities across the country.

On a day typically reserved for celebrating America’s past leaders, many Americans hit the streets this President’s Day in protest of our current one. “Not My President’s Day” rallies took place in major cities across the country Monday, the latest in a seemingly non-stop stream of organized anti-Trump resistance.

While the official rallies took place in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, protestors in cities like Washington D.C., Denver, and Atlanta also participated, People reports.

“A lot of people are angry because he lost the popular vote and is ruling like somebody who won by a landslide," Olga Lexell, one of the principal organizers, told CNN.

Protestors in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle carried anti-Trump signs and chanted “In the name of humanity, fascist America—No! No! No! No! No!," in front of the Trump International Hotel.

“Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests,” read a description for the New York protest on Facebook. “We will be staging a rally at Columbus Circle to protest the un-American policies of the current White House.”
