Anti-Trump activists took to the streets of Soho, New York, this week to let Trump know what they think of Russian President Putin’s role in his election.
Roughly a half-dozen protesters, dressed in military costumes and carrying a Russian flag, stood out front of Trump Hotel in Soho as images of Putin, saying, “HAPPY TO HELP BRO,” “FOLLOW THE MONEY,” and “LAUNDERING SERVICES AVAILABLE” appeared in both English and Russian around 10 p.m.
The protest was organized by Washington D.C. digital artist Robin Bell who wrote on Twitter: “Hi @realDonaldTrump, I’m projecting #followthemoney on the SoHo Trump hotel. On #nationaldollarday of all days.”
National Dollar Day was established to celebrate Congress’s creation of the US monetary system in 1786. Americans are encouraged to recognize the day by either spending a dollar or saving a dollar, a sentiment the protesters took a bit far.
The protest comes as the federal probe into possible Russian collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election continues to snowball, with special counsel Robert Mueller impaneling a grand jury last week. Mueller also made it clear he is looking into financial ties between Trump and Russian sources, with campaign manager Paul Manafort being forced to hand over more than 20,000 documents to the Senate Intel Committee.
This isn’t the first time protesters have targeted Trump’s monetary ties to Russia, as activists projected the words “PAY TRUMP BRIBES HERE” and “EMOLUMENTS WELCOME” on his D.C. hotel in May.
