Anti-Trump Protests Are Ramping Up In Cleveland

There were probably more press members than protesters at one of the RNC's early marches, but it's a sign of bigger things to come.

An anti-Donald Trump, pro-Black Lives Matter protest moved into downtown Cleveland a day before the Republican National Convention. There were only a couple hundred people, and there were more press members than protesters. But it was a sign of things to come at the convention.

 "This is an anti-Trump march," Loan Train told Newsy as she marched. "This is an anti-racist march. This is an anti-Islamophobia march. We are standing together against hatred and bigotry.”

 "Donald Trump is galvanizing a racist, very white supremacist aspect of our country," Dhruv Pathak said. 

 "I don't know what his plans are," Tijauna Morris said. "I don't know where he's going. He might be against me today and against you tomorrow. We need stability, accountability. We don't need Donald Trump."
