The Resistance (also known as the #Resistance) began as an American liberal political movement that protests the presidency of Donald Trump.[1][2] It was established as a grassroots movement[3] on January 19, 2017,[4] and has since grown to include not only Democrats, but Independents and Republicans against Trump. Members of the movement are known for their plentiful use of Twitter, especially the "#Resist" hashtag.[5] Some conservatives and Trump supporters have adopted the Resistance moniker to oppose President Joe Biden.
