(AP) — Scattered protests around the country continue to follow the unexpected election of Donald Trump as president, with hundreds marching in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Grand Rapids, Michigan.

A crowd that included parents with children in strollers gathered Thursday night near Philadelphia’s City Hall. They held signs bearing slogans like “Not Our President,” ”Trans Against Trump” and “Make America Safe For All.”

About 500 people turned out in Louisville, Kentucky, chanting and carrying signs as they marched downtown. A day earlier, five people were arrested at Western Kentucky University as demonstrators protested Trump’s election.

President elect, Donald Trump, tweeted about the protests Thursday night.
