President Donald Trump's arrival to Mercedes-Benz Stadium met with boos

President Donald Trump's arrival to Mercedes-Benz Stadium met with boos

The NAACP is calling for a "snowflake protest" against President Trump ahead of the national college football championship game in Georgia this week, telling fans to "wave white towels" to simulate a "blizzard" in response to the Trump presidency.

In a statement, the city's NAACP branch said they expect hundreds of protestors to hold anti-Trump signs while wearing to wear white as a mocking reference to the nickname "snowflake", which they said is a "nickname Trump supporters throw at their opponents".

Apparently the stadium was locked down for the President's arrival.

The white was meant to mock the "snowflake" insult that Trump supporters have made against those who oppose the USA president.

The NCAAP is also trying to start a movement on Twitter well before the game is even started.

Chapter president Richard Rose told USA TODAY Sports on Monday that the organization will also try to make noise on social media before and during the game, by directing tweets with the hashtag #DontCome at President Trump throughout the day and using #AllTrumpLies during the game.

Another group, Refuse Fascism ATL, said it was planning a demonstration outside CNN's world headquarters near the stadium.

That's a reference to the silent protest taken up by a number of USA professional athletes. Local, state and federal law enforcement authorities said last week that they've worked for months to develop security plans.
