PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A small but unruly group of “Not My Presidents Day” protesters faced off with police in downtown Portland.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/2lfx6xL ) that the police confronted the crowd in front of the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building on Monday. Police took some people into custody.

The crowd of several dozen, some wearing masks, were gathering for a “Not My Presidents Day” rally in protest of Donald Trump.

Police lined up facing the protesters on Southwest Third Avenue. The incident partially blocked the road.

At noon, a larger crowd gathered at Director Park under the canopy in the rain.

After listening to speeches, some started marching. Portland police say the march had permits from the city.
