Peaceful Trump protesters demonstrate on US Women's Open course

Several peaceful demonstrations during the final round of the U.S. Women's Open were capped by a stance from three women and a man wearing violet-colored shirts that said "USGA: Dump Sexist Trump", looking directly into Trump's skybox just after he arrived late Sunday afternoon.

The U.S. Women's Open was hosted at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday - a venue where President Trump and his family have recently been weekending. "Your pooler has not witnessed the protests because they are taking place away from the entrance through which the press vans entered", explained Andrew Restuccia of Politico. The loud crowd that gathered to watch him at times distracted the golfers playing nearby, with club staff urging fans trying to win Trump's attention to be quiet during play. Veselnitskaya has said she is a private lawyer and denies having Kremlin ties. "He did not release his tax returns, which is not transparent and is not fair to the people of the United States". Forty minutes later, he posted, "With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country". It didn't appear he saw the protesters.

They represented the women's rights organization UltraViolet, which had petitioned the U.S. Golf Association to move the championship from the Trump-owned course in light of vulgar comments he had made about women. Trump has chosen not to divest fully from his businesses, and so his continued promotion of such events (as well as his presence there at) is widely considered problematic optically and ethically.

True to form, President Trump updated his Twitter followers regularly over the weekend, interspersing golfing updates with politics and accusations of media releasing fake news.

What is pertinent to note is how Trump is now measuring his success on a protester, supporter ratio. This was the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years.
