PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Hundreds of people are in Providence protesting the election of Donald Trump as president.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2fMiaVK ) a Saturday afternoon rally drew over 300 supporters to the Rhode Island State House.

The “Rally Against Trump” was organized by the Socialist Alternative RI. On its Facebook page, the group says the protest is “for everyone who refuses to be silent” and an opportunity to “demonstrate our disapproval” of Trump’s agenda.



Among a host of issues, the group opposes Trump’s proposed wall along the Mexico border and deportation of immigrants living in the U.S. without legal permission.

It’s the second anti-Trump rally in held Providence since the election. Hundreds also gathered Wednesday at the State House, chanting “Love Trumps Hate” and “Not My President.”
