About 200 people are protesting the Donald Trump presidential victory in Vancouver Thursday evening.

Crowds began gathering outside the soon-to-be-open Trump Tower and Hotel on Georgia and Thurlow Streets around 4 p.m.

By 5 p.m., there were roughly 200 people armed with signs protesting the president-elect and his frequent rhetoric against immigration, Muslims, women and other minorities.

The crowd then began marching east along Georgia Street while chanting “Love trumps hate” and “Down with Trump.”
