TRUMP FAULTED OVER SC NOMINATION

By Black Radio Network Staff

       NEW YORK - At least seven people were arrested for civil disobedience Monday night in Manhattan during protests over President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

      Those arrested sat down in the middle of busy Fifth Avenue and blocked traffic in front of Trump Tower. Many at the rally, organized by the National Action Network, said that Trump's nominee will set the country back decades.

      The protest began peacefully with dozens of demonstrators marching up and down the sidewalk in front of Trump Tower chanting, “Hey hey, ho ho, Trump’s nominee has got to go!”

      The group then walked up to the corner of 57th Street and into the middle of the street. Some sat and others laid on the ground by Trump Tower. Traffic came to a standstill.

      The NYPD moved in and arrested the protestors without incident.

      Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that by picking Kavanaugh, Trump is delivering on his pledge to "punish" women for their choices.

      He said he will fight the nomination "with everything I have" and is urging people to make their voices heard, an indirect reference to voicing their objections to senators.

Schumer said if Kavanaugh is confirmed, "women's reproductive rights would be in the hands of five men on the Supreme Court."
