Second night of anti-Trump protests in Dallas

Protestors march in Dallas for a second night

DALLAS -- Protesters marched in the Dallas streets for the second night in a row Thursday in response to the election of Donald Trump for president Tuesday.

While at least two people were taken into custody for unknown reasons, the overall tone remained peaceful. Steering marchers away from highway ramps, police kept tight control of the crowd.

The rally began with speeches from protest organizers at Dealey Plaza and then led to a march through the West End to Victory Park and then up to Klyde Warren Park and back to the plaza. As the crowd grew, police followed.

Marchers carried signs and yelled out chants, "Can't build a wall, hands too small!" and "Whose streets, our streets." 

One lone Trump supporter held a sign that read "CRY BABIES" as he stood across the street from the protesters.

The march was among several that took place in large cities across the nation, including New York.

Trump took to Twitter to react to the rallies.
