A local chapter of the NAACP wants fans to wave anti-Trump towels at the College Football Playoff title game


At least two groups are organizing protests against President Donald Trump when he attends the College Football Playoff title game in Atlanta on Monday night.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Refuse Fascism ATL says, they'll "take a knee against Trump" outside CNN's headquarters near the Mercedes-Benz Stadium at 6 p.m., which is shortly before Trump’s arrival and two hours before kickoff.

The Atlanta chapter of the NAACP posted to Facebook, a message encouraging fans to bring white towels to the championship game and wave them at any mention of President Donald Trump.

"Trump supporters mockingly call the opposition snowflakes, but when we come together we create a mighty storm," the Atlanta chapter wrote on Facebook.

USA TODAY confirmed last week that Trump plans to attend Monday night's game as a guest of Nick and Jamie Ayers; Nick Ayers is Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff.
