Thousands of People Protest Against NATO and Trump in Brussels

Voice of America

Thousands of leftist demonstrators marched in central Brussels Wednesday, protesting against both NATO and Trump. Some carried picket signs and banners with obscenities insulting the U.S. leader, Voice of America reports.

To note, NATO leaders arrived in Brussels amid tight security for a summit Thursday dominated by the terrorist attack in Manchester, England.

It is the first encounter of many of the leaders with US President Donald Trump, who during his campaign called the alliance "obsolete" for not effectively countering terrorism.

The protesters are against the U.S. leader possibly getting the support he needs to strengthen the alliance's anti-terrorist efforts, after recent terror attacks in Europe.
