Anti-Trump protests staged at US Women's Open

Trump plans third day watching golf tournament at his NJ club

The most vocal opponent was a woman, who would only be identified as Victoria K., a Taiwanese immigrant who lives in Harding, could be heard yelling "What rights have you lost?" at the protesters, among other things.

Critics of President Donald Trump protested against him literally on his own turf Sunday, with a dozen of them wearing shirts with anti-Trump slogans while on the grounds of Trump National Golf Club.
