RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Raleigh on Friday to protest in the wake of Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States.
Protesters spent more than an hour marching around Nash Square, chanting things such as “Not my president!” and “Dump Trump!” About 10 p.m. they marched from the square to the Capitol and back.
As of 10:30 p.m., the protesters hadn’t blocked any streets and there hadn’t been any visible violence or arrests.
People aired a variety of concerns about policies Donald Trump has advocated and comments he has made. Topics of concern included his attitudes on Latinos, women and the LGBT community.
A few drivers passing the protest shouted pro-Trump messages.
Other protests are planned around the Triangle in coming days.
