Baltimore Trump Protesters Hoist Giant Rat Puppets: ‘Trump and the GOP are the Real Rats’

Protesters hoisted giant rat puppets, including an inflatable one designed to look like President Donald Trump ahead of his speech at the Baltimore Waterfront Marriott hotel in Maryland on Thursday.

“Dozens of people have gathered here” to protest the president’s visit, Fox 45’s Alexa Ashwell reported from the scene, explaining that the rat puppets symbolize protesters’ indignation at Trump’s previous comments about Baltimore’s rat-infestation and urban decay problems.

“Trump and the GOP are the real rats,” a sign on one puppet reads. The protesters told Ashwell they also oppose Trump’s policies on immigration and gun control.

“I did see a couple of counter-protesters – people in support of President Trump,” Ashwell said.
