Protesters Plan To Give Trump Plane Tickets To Russia For His Birthday

While Donald Trump may want celebratory festivities on his 71st birthday, many protesters have different ideas. Hundreds of people are expected to congregate outside of the Trump Tower in Manhattan Wednesday to protest his continued stay in the White House amid investigation into Russian campaign links. 

Dubbed the "#SadBirthdayParty,"  a group called Rise and Resist, formed in the wake of Trump’s election last November, will hold the event. According to a press release from the group, it will involve hundreds of protesters gathering outside Manhattan’s Trump Tower and delivering a special gift: plane tickets to Russia—or, as the group puts it, “back to Russia.”

Several other protests are planned on Trump's birthday, including a demonstration outside of his Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach and at Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York. According to a Facebook post, the protests begin in each location at 12 p.m. and will last until 8 p.m.

Previously, Rise and Resist has protested Trump’s travel ban plans, immigration raids and proposed border wall.

As for family-laden birthday festivities, first lady Melania has asked supporters to pass on their best wishes. “Friend, Donald will be glad to hear from friends like you who have meant so much to his and our Party’s success,” read an email.

Melania has also given Donald another gift: She and son Barron have moved into the White House following the completion of Barron’s school year, which is likely to scupper Rise and Resist’s plan to deliver the plane tickets to Russia at Trump Tower care of Melania Trump.
