Houston thumps Trump

Houston met Donald Trump with loud, militant and massive protests on June 17 at both his exorbitantly priced home in River Oaks, Houston’s wealthiest neighborhood, and at his mass rally in suburban Woodlands. There, as the motorcade passed in front of the crowd of protesters across the street, the noise and the anger of the crowd reverberated off palatial mansions and manicured lawns. The protest was led by many immigrant organizations. A larger-than-life piñata of Trump was front and center with the sign around the effigy’s neck reading “El Hijo del Diablo” (the son of the devil).
