ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump was set to return to his hometown on Thursday (May 4) for the first time since taking office, as many New Yorkers took to the streets to protest the politics of the man who built his name and fortune in the city. The centerpiece of Trump's trip, a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull aboard the decommissioned aircraft carrier Intrepid, was pushed back several hours as Trump celebrated at the White House with fellow Republicans from the U.S. House of Representatives who narrowly passed a new healthcare bill. But that did not stop demonstrators from rallying and marching near the Intrepid, now a floating museum on Manhattan's West Side, banging pans, chanting "not my president" and carrying signs. The demonstrations, which included other groups throughout Manhattan, were reminiscent of the weeks after Trump's Nov. 8 election when frequent protests took place outside his home in the Fifth Avenue tower that bears his name. The first 100 days since the Jan. 20 inauguration of the businessman-turned-politician brought rollbacks of environmental regulations and crackdowns on immigrants, none of which play well in the liberal Northeast city.
