Trump’s Muslim travel ban draws 1,000 protesters to RDU airport

An estimated 1,000 demonstrators spent Sunday afternoon at Raleigh Durham International airport protesting Donald Trump’s travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Similar protests opposing the ban erupted this weekend at dozens of other airports including: Charlotte-Douglas, JFK, Philadelphia International, Indianapolis, and Denver International.

Below are just a few images from the peaceful turnout at RDU before officials ended the event due to overcrowding.
