What is certain is that the next day, Saturday, the president had on Twitter some threatening messages addressed to the protesters, some finding the language used by Donald Trump really shocking.

Flight attendant, confused with Meghan Markle! What does the woman who can pass as the Duchess of Sussex look like
It is said that each of us has at least one "double" with which he shares most of the prominent features. Whether it is in another corner of the world or nearby, many people have found, over time, their "clones", even if they were not in any case related to the genetic factor involving similarities between degrees of kinship.
And, if ordinary people, at some point, end up seeing their blood-twinned "twin brothers" but imagine how quickly celebrities can meet their double, especially if they are sometimes confused with the latter.
A flight attendant was seen so many times as if people were wondering "where is Harry", so she says she was ready to audition for the role of Meghan Markle in a film about the Duchess's life.
Christine Primrose Mathis, 32, of New Jersey, was first mistaken for Meghan 5 years ago, when Prince Harry's wife, now 38, starred in the series Suits. Christine says that she initially took the situation as a joke, but that she also began to notice the similarities in the end, especially after Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex and images of her circulated everywhere.
Later, she enrolled in a specialized agency and became, part-time, Meghan's impersonator. Christine also did pictorials in her new position and even posed with Prince Harry's lookalike. But a role in a movie about Meghan, in which to play her role, would be the stewardess's biggest dream.
During a visit to London, the flight attendant was assaulted by admirers of the Duchess of Sussex, who were shocked to finally find out that the one in front of them was not Meghan. "At first I was shocked, but anyway I took it as a compliment, I always thought the Duchess was very beautiful," said Christine.
