5. Anti-Trump protesters

As President Donald Trump gave his address to the CPAC crowd Friday morning, there was a small group of protesters in the public lawn area out front of the hotel holding up signs and mildly chanting.

Some of the signs read: "Impeach Putin's Poodle," "Unlike My Healthcare, My Rage is Free of Charge," "Hands of My ACA," and "Not My President."

The demonstrators also chanted things like "Hands off our health care!" and "No hate! No fear! Immigrants are welcome here!"

"We are protesting Donald Trump's policies," a local Prince George's County resident named Betty told The Christian Post. "Especially the health care because so many people are going to be without health care and we feel for those people because they are going to be in the streets and they are going to have choose between medicine or eating."

The protesters dispersed shortly after Trump's speech ended.
