LOS ANGELES (AP) - Thousands of demonstrators protested the policies of President Donald Trump during a Presidents Day rally in downtown Los Angeles.

KNX news radio reports (https://cbsloc.al/2kFxbMk ) Monday that Los Angeles was the first city to come up with the “Not My Presidents Day” call to action.

Organizers say they chose to rally on the holiday as a way to honor past presidents by exercising their constitutional right to assemble and peacefully protest.

Demonstrators say they wanted to call attention to Trump’s crackdown on immigration and his party’s response to climate change and the environment. They chanted “Love not hate makes America Great” during a rally and held signs denouncing Trump.

Rally were also held in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia and more than two dozen other cities nationwide.
