Hundreds Gather at Trump Golf Course and Spell It Out: 'Resist!'

Local Indivisible group targets country club owned by the president to deliver message

Go to Original

With the national anti-Trump resistance movement continuing its fight against the White House and Republican agendas on all fronts, 200 members of a local Indivisible group in California on Saturday took their message to the  Trump National Golf Course in the town of Rancho Palos Verdes and aimed it at the sky: Resist!

With bodies folded against one another on a green near the course's clubhouse, the aerial shots are not likely to be included in the country club's brochure anytime soon.

Peter Warren, a member of Indivisible San Pedro, explained to local news channel CBS2that the protest was calling for a special prosecutor to begin an independent probe into whether there was Russian influence on the 2016 presidential election and if there was collusion of any kind with the Trump campaign or people affiliated with it.

200 members of Indivisible San Pedro form the word RESIST! Sat. at Trump National Golf Course, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

Thousands of local Indivisible groups have popped up around the country since Trump took over the White House in January. Spawned by former legislative aides in Washington, D.C. who wrote the "Indivisible Guide" and posted it online, the groups have formed one of the main arteries for grassroots resistance against both Trump and the Republican lawmakers who now control both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

As The Hill noted, the San Pedro group's Facebook describes them as "a group of concerned citizens that realize the Trump administration's agenda will take America backwards, and must be stopped."
