Anti-Trump protesters gather in New York
WASHINGTON - Several hundred demonstrators in New York City are continuing to protest Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
The protesters gathered Saturday in Manhattan's Columbus Circle, across from Central Park, amid a heavy police presence.
Demonstrators chanted: "Donald Trump, go away, racist, sexist, anti-gay."
They marched across south Central Park to Trump Tower, the Fifth Avenue skyscraper where Trump lives. Then they marched back to Columbus Circle for a rally.
The protest was largely peaceful though there was one tense moment when some protesters tried to break through a police barricade.
Two protesters who walked in the street were arrested.
Various groups including immigrants' rights activists and socialists organized the protest.
One sign read "Love Trumps Hate." Another read, "Will trade 1 Donald Trump for 25,000 refugees."
