The third annual Women's March is returning to Washington this week amid inclement weather, ideological schisms and the longest government shutdown in American history.

The Women's March Twitter account and others are promoting the event.

"While the Women's March is a movement pushing back against President Trump and his administration's words and actions towards the disenfranchised - namely women - the mission of the movement in no way excuses it from being held to an inclusive set of values", IU College Democrats' executive board said in a statement.

She said she would "keep opposing Donald Trump and his policies".

The original march helped spark a rise in women's political activism, with a record 131 women now serving in the new US Congress.

"Today, sadly, I must walk away from the national Women's March organization, and specifically its leadership", said Rep.

We are here to champion ALL women's achievements and advancements. In a Facebook post, she claimed Sarsour and Mallory, along with fellow organizers Bob Bland and Carmen Perez, had "steered the Movement away from its true course" and called for all four to step down. Political scientists from the universities of CT and Denver estimated that it was the single largest march in US history.

Trump had long expressed a desire for a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It was flown to Pyongyang and delivered by hand, the source said on Monday night.

The statement does not mention the Women's March by name, nor does it reference the organization's reported connections to known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

The newly elected women - almost all Democrats - include the first Muslim women and first Native American women in Congress, as well as the first black women to represent their states in New England.

In an interview set to air on Friday night, Women's March co-president Tamika Mallory refused to affirm Israel's right to exist just moments after she refuted charges of anti-Semitism.

But turnout was muted compared to years past as organizers in Boston, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles bemoaned the organizational challenges caused by the refusal of Women's March leaders to condemn all forms of antisemitism, and to recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state.

"I believe that all people have the right to exist", Mallory replied.

Another Democrat, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, is scheduled to speak Saturday at the Women's March Iowa in Des Moines, after appearing at the 2017 and 2018 events in Washington, D.C.

Loomer, who reportedly met the men at a Home Depot parking lot and persuaded them to join her protest, convinced the men to chant "You're killing us Nancy!" after discovering the congressional leader's door was locked, according to The Daily Beast.
