NEWARK - The streets of Newark were clogged Saturday after a group of protesters marched to denounce President-elect Donald Trump.

The protest began at Rutgers University and made its way to City Hall and Newark Penn Station.

At one point, the march marshaled close to 150 people.

The protest in the Brick City was a small mirror to the massive protests across America - thousands have been protesting in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City.

Trump's first reaction to the protests were through his Twitter account, where he called the them "unfair." He later said he loved that groups of protesters had passion for the country.
