Some South Africans to join anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington
Over 200,000 supporters of women’s rights are expected to descend on Washington DC for a march against the Trump administration.
CAPE TOWN - Over 200,000 supporters of women’s rights are expected to descend on Washington DC for a march against the Trump administration later on Saturday.
The Women’s March on Washington sets out to address issues of concern many of these protesters believe Trump’s administration threatens.
Donald Trump was on Friday inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America.
In his inaugural speech, Donald Trump recommitted himself to improving the lives of American citizens.
“From this day forward it’s going to be only America first. America first! (sic).”

But these South Africans living in the US said they would join Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington as they fear Trump’s presidency.
“It leads you to question how he and his followers sees you as an outsider of the community at the moment.
”It’s wishful thinking to believe that he’s going to actually close the borders. I don’t think that it’s going to be a practical approach.”
