Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry takes a walk through the Women's March on Washington. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined hundreds of thousands of women on Saturday (January 21) in the Women's March on Washington, a mass show of opposition to U.S. President Donald Trump's agenda the day after the Republican businessman-turned-politician took office. As Kerry weaved through the crowd, hundreds of marchers greeted the country's former top diplomat with thank you's and other comments. Many posed for selfies with Kerry, who was walking with his dog Ben. The Women's March on Washington was one of a series of street protests throughout the country and the world against the new president's often angry, populist rhetoric. Trump has angered many liberal Americans with comments seen as demeaning to women, Mexicans and Muslims, and worried some abroad with his inaugural vow on Friday to put "America First" in his decision making. The flood of people on Saturday appeared to be larger than the crowds who turned out the day before to witness Trump's inauguration on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Organizers of the protest had told police they expected 200,000 people to attend but the crowd looked bigger than that.
