Reno, Salt Lake City join in anti-Trump vigils nationwide

July 19, 2018

RENO, Nev. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s comments at a recent summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin have triggered protests nationwide.

Reno and Salt Lake City joined more than 110 planned vigils called “Confront Corruption: Demand Democracy” on Wednesday.

More than 50 people came out to the Reno event, while more than 100 gathered at the Utah Capitol in Salt Lake City.

Organizers say they were disappointed to hear Trump say he didn’t think Russia interfered in country’s 2016 election, a statement Trump later took back and corrected.

They say they are also concerned with the attacks on the press and law enforcement from Trump, his administration and his party along with rampant conflicts of interest, ethics violations and abuse of government office.
