Anti-Trump demonstrators march outside president-elect's 'Thank You' tour speech

CINCINNATI -- While supporters were cheering for the president-elect inside U.S. Bank Arena Thursday night, police were keeping demonstrators back from the building's doors.

Several hundred demonstrators were out holding signs and chanting as other people went inside the arena for President-elect Donald Trump's 'Thank You' tour speech.

Some of the demonstrators came alone, while others came as parts of different groups from around Cincinnati. Lara Allen flew in from Brooklyn and joined the demonstrators. She said it was too important a chance to pass up.

"Now that he's making all these appointments, it's very clear that he's appointing billionaires -- special interests -- climate deniers," Allen said.

Most of the demonstrators said they accepted the results, but still found it hard to believe.

"The man has said some things that are racist, that are anti-women," Jim Vogt of Covington said. "Just so many things that were said that just have never been said before and wouldn't have been accepted before."

Several Trump supporters went back-and-forth with the anti-Trump demonstrators, but everything appeared to be peaceful and the crowd started clearing out around 7:45 p.m.
