Thousands Protest Trump’s Visit to Brussels for NATO Meeting

HeadlineMay 25, 2017
H05 trump brussels protest

President Trump was greeted by 9,000 angry protesters when he arrived in Belgium Wednesday as part of his first foreign trip as president. Last year, Trump sparked outrage when he described Brussels as “a hellhole” because it had welcomed so many immigrants and refugees. This is protester Anne Tonglet.

Anne Tonglet: “Trump is a great example of appalling machismo. He wants to destroy the planet. He wants to destroy people. We are not insignificant. We are 99 percent of the planet, against 1 percent billionaires, the only ones that Trump represents.”

In Brussels, Trump will be attending his first NATO summit today.
