DC Women’s March Changes Course, Heading to the White House for Trump’s Border Security Announcement –Move to 4 PM

The DC Women’s March was scheduled to wrap up at 2:30, but the leadership has now changed their plans and are directing the march to go to the White House at 3 p.m. — an hour ahead of President Donald Trump’s border security announcement.

According to a source, the last minute change of plans came about a half an hour before the march was supposed to conclude.

The group will be marching a half mile from Freedom Plaza to Lafayette Park.

Though there are still a large number of protesters, the crowd is much smaller than previous years — amid controversy about the leaders ties to antisemitism and Louis Farrakhan.


At the NYC march, Laura Loomer rushed the stage and called the attendees out on the march’s “Jew hatred.”

In DC, Tamika Mallory, one of the march’s co-presidents, who has refused to condemn Farrakhan calling Jewish people “termites,” attempted to mitigate the damage to their brand.

“To my Muslim sisters, I see you,” Mallory said. “To my Latina sisters, I see you. To my Asian sisters, I see you. To my disabled sisters, I see you. And to my Jewish sisters: Do not let anyone tell you who I am. I see all of you.”

The Gateway Pundit will continue to monitor the march and provide updates if the situation escalates at the White House.
