BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- A group rallied outside Sen. Charles Schumer's office in Binghamton Thursday, saying he must use his position as Senate minority leader to continue to oppose Trump's agenda.

Protesters say Trump's cabinet picks are a giveaway to his friends on Wall Street and in the oil and gas industry, but they are optimistic because of the turnout at rallies like this.

"This may seem, to a lot of people, like a hopeless moment, looking at this onslaught of horrendous picks for the cabinet. But what I'm seeing across the country is people standing up and getting out. He can deny climate change. He can deny lies. But he can't deny the will of the people," said Catskill Mountainkeeper Program Director Wes Gillingham.

Similar rallies were held at Schumer's seven other offices across the state.
