SAN DIEGO -- Less than 24 hours after Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States, anti-Trump protesters took to the streets in cities across the nation, including downtown San Diego.
Hundreds of people marched through the streets, voicing their opposition to the President elect.
The group marched through the Gaslamp District, chanting "out of the bars, into the streets." Some of the crowd began to chant "F*** the police" as officers worked to guide them out of the city center.
The protesters ended up at Horton Plaza, where they got into a standoff with San Diego police in riot gear. The demonstration shut down trolley service for a short time.
A few scuffles broke out between protesters and police. Eventually, the protesters dispersed. Officers cited or arrested 19 of the demonstrators on suspicion of failure to disperse or participating in an unlawful assembly, police said.
One protestor told 10News the group was marching to share this message: "We don't want Donald Trump, or accept him as a president. We don't think he is a good candidate, at all."
