NEW YORK: A new anti-Trump bar in New York City is giving patrons the chance to put their money where their politics are by earmarking profits for a range of progressive causes.

The founders of Coup say the space is a response to Republican President Donald Trump's administration.

It has protest-themed decor. There are rolls of paper on the walls inscribed with slogans like "The Pilgrims were undocumented."

Customers are given tokens when they buy drinks. They put the tokens in jars labeled with names of organizations including the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

The owners say they'll give 100 percent of their profits to the groups, based on the number of tokens each gets from customers.

Founder Ravi DeRossi says everyone is welcome to come in and have a drink, including Trump supporters.
