President Donald Trump has arrived at his New York home for the first time since his inauguration as a throng of protesters lined the street.
The President’s motorcade pulled up to Trump Tower on Monday night while avoiding the protesters, who chanted “New York hates you” and “shame, shame, shame” while awaiting him.
Thousands of protesters had lined Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to await him.
The protesters carried signs with such messages as “impeach” and “stop the hate, stop the lies”.
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.
Police said two people have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges near Trump Tower, during the demonstration against the President.
