Trump plans third day watching golf tournament at his NJ club

Donald Trump at US Open venue: Ultraviolet, a women's advocacy group protested against President

The day after the January 20 inauguration of President Trump, hundreds of thousands of women participated in mass protests in several major US cities, galvanized by his campaign rhetoric and behaviour they found to be misogynistic.

As captured by our USA TODAY Network paper NorthJersey.com, John Brennan reports that seven women wearing white t-shirts spelling the word "RESIST!" on the front and "THIS IS NOT NORMAL" on the back made their presence felt at Trump National Golf Club - Bedminster.

Spectators gathered across from the glass-enclosed structure hoping to catch sight and snap pictures of the president, who periodically co-operated by coming into view to wave or give a thumbs-up, while wearing a red "Make America Great Again" cap.

Protesters have criticized the U.S. Golf Assn., which operates the tournament, for not moving it to a different venue after audio surfaced past year of Trump making derogatory comments about women.

Trump National was named as the site for the 2017 U.S. Women's Open in 2012, long before the golf-loving real estate magnate and reality TV star officially entered politics.

Mr Trump said it was "very cool" to see all the support for him at the Bedminster course.

Demonstrators from Ultraviolet, a women's advocacy group, were also present at the golf course for the third day, to denounce both Trump and the US Golf Association.

The final day of the U.S. Women's Open tournament had an even bigger stage with President Trump in attendance.

As Trump watched, South Korea's Park Sung-Hyun fired her second consecutive five-under par 67 to capture the US Women's Open.

"I am excited and happy", said Park, the event's seventh South Korean victor in 10 years.
