Historic Women's March on Washington protests Trump administration's agenda

More than 2 million people across the world, led by hundreds of thousands who overwhelmed the nation's capital, protested the first full day of President Trump's tenure Saturday. Women's advocates said they are worried about the potential loss of federal protections, as well as a more permissible culture of misogyny under Trump, who won the presidency after accusations of serial sexual assault and bragging he groped women's genitals.

The very first executive action by the new Trump administration wasn't a sweeping order on immigration, trade or health care — but rather to block an Obama administration policy change that would have reduced the cost of mortgages for millions of home buyers. In the first hour of Trump's presidency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sent a letter to lenders, real estate brokers and closing agents suspending the 0.25-percentage-point-premium rate cut for Federal Housing Administration-backed loans. That cut would have saved home buyers about $29 a month on a $200,000 mortgage.
