Protests continue around D.C. against President-elect Trump (ABC7)

One person was arrested during anti-Donald Trump protests in the District on Wednesday night, the U.S. Park Police confirm.

Protesters moved from the newly-opened Trump International Hotel to the White House and back on the night after Trump was elected to be the next president of the United States.

Many protesters against Trump's rhetoric held up signs and chanted "Not our President" and "Black Lives Matter."


Some protesters attempted to break thru a barrier outside of the Trump Hotel.

ABC7's Tim Barber says many protestors began to chant First Lady Michelle Obama's quote, "They go low. We go high," to other protestors.

Protesters put up a sign that read "hate" with the image of Trump attached on the wall of a building.

American flags were burned outside of the Trump Hotel and White House.

The arrest was made near the White House. The man was taken into custody by the Secret Service.

Also in the area, students at University of Maryland, College Park also held an anti-Trump protest on Wednesday night.
