Two arrests amid protests around Trump Tower
NEW YORK - Police say two people have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges near Trump Tower, where a throng of demonstrators gathered as President Donald Trump headed home.
The president's motorcade pulled up to Trump Tower on Monday night. It approached from a direction that bypassed the thousands of protesters and a far smaller group of supporters awaiting him.
The protesters carried signs with such messages as "impeach" and "stop the hate, stop the lies." Supporters say "God bless President Trump."
It's the first time the Republican president has been home since his January inauguration.
Security is heavy around the skyscraper. Police have stationed sand-filled sanitation trucks as barriers around the building and layers of metal police barricades around the main entrance.
