President Donald Trump, for the 100 plus protestors who took to the streets of Buffalo, Friday afternoon, it's a title they never thought the now president would ever win.

But, win it, he has. 

The protesters marched from Lafayette Square to Allentown. They promise they will be loud throughout the next four years.

“We're just getting started,” said Jamie Anderson with the Buffalo Against Racism Coalition. BARC helped organize the march. 

The protesters fear rights will be lost, whether it be Muslims, the LGBTQ community, or just constitutional rights.

“Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, we're standing to lose all of those rights that we still need to be fighting for,” said Jamie Diamond with Liberty Union Progressives.

Buffalo Police monitored the march, closely. No arrest were made.
