Anti-Trump Demonstrators Take to DC's Streets

Dozens of people protested Donald Trump's presidential victory in the District Wednesday night.

Protesters gathered outside the White House before marching to the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

There, they set an American flag on fire, chanted "No racist USA! No Trump! No KKK!" and held signs that read "Stand with immigrant workers!"

"As a native Washingtonian, I hate to have this to happen in my town," said Rebecca Lindrew, who held a sign that read "Love Trumps Hate."

"We're trying to do whatever it takes to sort of unite people and to get them together and to unite against racism and bigotry and misogyny," Lindrew said.

Police said blue paint was thrown at a hotel window during the protests.

Another group of protesters marched in the area of 14th Street NW. D.C. police officers were at both protests.

Earlier Wednesday, a group of people protested and burned an American flag on American University's campus.

An anti-Trump vigil was held outside the White House shortly before the protests in front of Trump's hotel.
