About 200 people gathered near Catholic University in Northeast Washington, DC, Tuesday morning to peacefully protest President Donald Trump visiting the shrine of Pope John Paul II.
Trump's visit to the shrine, after a night of unrest and tear-gassing of peaceful protests in DC, came ahead of him signing an executive order on religious freedom.
"I find it baffling and reprehensible" that a Catholic institution would allow itself to be "misused" and "manipulated" by Trump, wrote Catholic Archbishop of Washington Wilton Gregory in advance of the visit.
