Protesters gathered outside the White House on Saturday to direct their anger at President Trump after days of demonstrations over police brutality against Black individuals, including George Floyd.
The portion of 16th Street leading up to the White House, where D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser had imprinted in large yellow letters “Black Lives Matter,” was filled with demonstrators, including LGBTQ protesters expressing solidarity and anger over racism and police brutality.
