Night 2 of protests at Trump Tower

NEW YORK (AP) — Protesters have returned to Trump Tower for a second night of vitriol directed at President Donald Trump.

Many of the hundreds of demonstrators Tuesday night came to throw their support behind immigrant rights. They also called Trump a Putin puppet and chanted "hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go."

Earlier, during an impromptu press conference in the tower's lobby, Trump again said both sides were to blame for the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

On Monday, thousands of protesters and dozens of supporters waited for hours for Trump to return to Trump Tower for the first time since his January inauguration.

They carried signs with such messages as "impeach" and "stop the hate, stop the lies." Supporters countered with "God bless President Trump."
