ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Hundreds of anti-trump protesters made their voices heard on Friday in Downtown Orlando. They say President-Elect Donald Trump does not represent them.
They marched from Lake Eola through downtown and then back to the park. Love and peace was the central them of the demonstration. Protestors tell us they know racism exists, but they hope that President-Elect Donald Trump doesn't perpetuate it. Another Anti-Trump protest will take place at Lake Eola on Saturday.
Spurred by fear and outrage, people around the country rallied and marched Friday, as they have done daily since Trump's election victory.
Trump supporter Nicolas Quirico was traveling from South Beach to Miami. His car was among hundreds stopped when protesters blocked Interstate 395.
"Trump will be our president. There is no way around that, and the sooner people grasp that, the better off we will be," he said. "There is a difference between a peaceful protest and standing in a major highway backing up traffic for 5 miles. This is wrong."
Small protests also were held in Atlanta; Detroit; Minneapolis; Philadelphia; Kansas City, Missouri; Olympia, Washington and Iowa City.
