PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Hundreds have gathered on the steps of the State House in Rhode Island’s capital city to protest the election of Donald Trump as president.

Crowds chanting “love trumps hate” and “not my president” rallied at the building on Wednesday in Providence after the Republican Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election.

The Providence Journal reports Warwick resident Anthony DiDomenico held a picket sign with the word “NO” written on it. He told the newspaper he was worried about the welfare of women he knows who are abuse victims.

College student Lexer Grande says he feels threatened by a Trump presidency as a married gay man.

City police and state troopers were present as the group marched through the city and made their way back to the State House.
