Еще running for a US Senate seat. Manning told the press she is not a politician but an activist standing in solidarity with people who «make a difference in their own way.» On January 20, 2017, 230 people were arrested during protests against Trump’s inauguration. Of those, 59 people are being prosecuted with multiple offences and face up to 60 years in prison.
