PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Thousands of mostly young protesters rallied against President-elect Donald Trump in Portland, Oregon, disrupting traffic.

During the Wednesday gathering people shouted “not my president” and many carried signs saying things like “Love Trumps Hate.”

The Portland Police said a portion of Interstate 5 through the city was briefly closed as a precautionary measure in both directions because of protest activity. Police said protesters did not get on the freeway. Police said the protesters numbered about 2,000.

Earlier the protest in downtown drew several Trump supporters, who taunted the demonstrators with signs. At one point, a lone Trump supporter was chased across Pioneer Courthouse Square and hit in the back with a skateboard before others intervened.
