  • 'Proud Boys' rally in Boulder as hundreds March for Truth in Denver over the weekend

Around the country, people took to the streets to protest, including here in Indianapolis.

But Trump's decision Thursday to pull out of the Paris treaty, which is created to cut harmful emissions and slow the Earth's warming, sparked a wave of global condemnation and helped fuel some of the many protest marches on Saturday. "The legitimacy of the United States government hinges on the answers to these questions".

Trump announced Thursday his decision to pull out of the global climate agreement, joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries that are not part of the Paris agreement. That was a clear reference to Trump's remarks this week that he was "elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" as a justification for pulling out of the Paris climate agreement. "Just because the USA got out of a club doesn't mean we aren't going to care about the environment", she said.

"What's unfortunate is the media that's making the division ― and the other leftist group ― but the reality is people do support what he's doing", an unidentified Trump supporter told Fox News.

Christi Branch, from Waynesboro, Virginia, said she made the last-minute trip to the nation's capital to show her support for Trump.

But it was the March for Truth that drew the biggest crowds of the day.

Trump calls for end of the legislative filibuster
President Trump has a great idea about how to speed up that process: ending the filibuster once and for all. Trump's tweets have kept his allies and opponents off balance during policy fights.

"It has to be a transparent investigation because the people need to know the truth", said political activist Linda Sarsour. The participants carried signs that called for Trump's impeachment and depicted Trump as a puppet being controlled by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Organizers called it a March for Truth.

A couple other signs at #MarchForTruth Seattle.

They said special counsel Robert Muller's investigation into the issue is not enough; they want an independent commission to determine the facts. They were far smaller than some of the earlier anti-Trump protests.

Demonstrators take part in the March for Truth rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on June 3, 2017.

"I'm just glad to get out here, trying to get activated so that I'm active in my democracy", said Anne Bologna, one of the protesters at the rally.
