Allen said: “If Trump had been transparent from the word go at lot of this wouldn’t have happened and clearly he has something to hide because he’s not transparent. It’s just really telling and it’s just unfortunate that we have to do these things and march. It’s very sad that we’re going backwards; it’s very disappointing. You have hope for people but he has really just let everybody down.” (Photo: Lucy Nicholson/Reuters)

It baffles me how someone can have so much hate in their heart and inequality and think that’s OK and that’s power. As president, he should be a leader who inspires hope and change for the better and not influence people to think negatively of other people. It breaks my heart to see that.” (Photo: Lucy Nicholson/Reuters)
