Metal bar­ri­cades and armed agents kept pro­test­ers off the side­walk in front of Ms. Trump’s $5.5 mil­lion home, CBS af­fil­i­ate WUSA 9 re­ported. Hun­dreds of pro­test­ers chanted on the street as mu­sic blared in the up­scale Kalo­rama neigh­bor­hood.

“We are out here to say, ‘Send a mes­sage to pro­tect Mother Earth,’” one pro­tester told WUSA.
