March for Our Lives protesters just left Trump a brilliant surprise at his flagship DC hotel

The March for Our Lives took the world by storm today, sending a powerful message to President Trump and his Republican cronies that their days of doing the bidding of the NRA and gun manufacturers are numbered. For far too long has this country suffered from an epidemic of gun violence.


Trump fled Washington D.C. as demonstrators, led by the brave activist survivors of the tragic Parkland school shooting, descended on the capital en masse to call for immediate, meaningful gun reform. Unfortunately for the president, when he returns to a city there will be a surprise waiting for him.

Rather than throw out their signs after the protest, many activists are piling them up outside Trump Hotel in D.C., a clear sign that the American people expect and demand their president stop to acting like a coward and take a stand against the gun fetishists that keep the entire nation locked in a state of constant of fear.

One Twitter user shared a video of the countless signs piled up. A large number of policeman are stationed nearby, but the protests have been nothing but peaceful. Many of them depict gun silhouettes crossed out, while others focus on the GOP’s failure to protect children in schools across the country.

Add your name to demand Trump & Congress act to prevent gun violence. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE NOT ENOUGH!

The Hill reports that early estimates place the protest crowd at over 800,000 people, a staggering number that shows just how serious Americans are taking this issue. If Republicans don’t change fast, they’re going to find themselves washed out of office in a blue tidal wave.

The images and videos rolling in from the March are very enheartening. A strong and clear message is being sent to our government: take action, or be replaced. Trump and the Republican Party will no longer be able to take blood money from their NRA puppeteers without consequences. The world is paying attention now.

The younger generation isn’t complacent, they’re in the streets, and soon they’ll be in voting booths. Things are finally primed to change for the better in this country, and we must keep the momentum going.
