A crowd of several hundred protesters gathered outside Los Angeles City Hall on Monday morning for the Not My President's Day rally.

"Donald Trump stands against the progress we have worked hard to enact," the event's Facebook page states. "He does not represent our interests. He was voted in by a minority of the American public but governs as if there's no resistance."

As of Monday morning, the page listed 19,000 people interested, and over 4,000 people "Going". The actual attendance was significantly lower. The Los Angeles rally was one of several Not My President's Day rallies across the United States.

The rally occured two days after a march for immigrants rights took place in Pershing Square on Saturday. Some 2,500 people were estimated at the event.
