Antisemitic and anti-Trump sign at pro-Trump protests at the MI state capitol

Lansing, MI
- Protests held at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing on Sunday, Jan. 17, to oppose the results of the U.S. presidential election were largely peaceful and sparsely attended outside of a few members of right-wing fringe movements, some counter-protesters and members of the media.

But one image was familiar to those who have been tracking Michigan antisemitic incidents.

A Lansing photo captured by Associated Press reporter Anna Liz Nichols depicted a man wearing a placard with a sign showing a caricature of President Trump wearing a yarmulke, holding a menorah in one hand and an Israel flag in the other. Text on the sign reads, “Hey, Donald! We thought you said America First!”
