About 3,000 people gathered at Grand Army Plaza at around 6 p.m. Tuesday and then walked over to Schumer's building in Prospect Park West, the New York Post reported.

The protesters were demonstrating against what they called the New York senator's "centrist" beliefs and his stance on some of the president's Cabinet picks.

During the protest, they held signs calling for Schumer to block and obstruct Trump's nominees "by any means necessary" and urging the senator to "show some spine" and "resist Trump."

The protesters also chanted "What the f---, Chuck," and "Stay strong, Chuck."

“Senator Schumer needs to know we’re watching him,” Brad Wolchansky, a 40-year-old soccer coach from Flatbush, told the Post.

“He works for us. We need him to be bold. We need him to stand up to Trump and oppose his picks."

Schumer said Monday he would oppose at least eight of the president's Cabinet nominees. But he has voted in favor of three nominees.

“He’s talking the talk on social media, but is he walking the walk?” asked Cambra Moniz-Edwards, 35, of Brooklyn. “What the f–--, Chuck?!”
