Boise Trump protest: 'I felt overwhelmed and angry'

Anti-Trump protest in downtown Boise.

BOISE - In Boise on Thursday night - as in cities across the nation - protesters gathered to rally against President-Elect Donald Trump.

The people who showed up at the Statehouse said many of Trump's policies or things he had said make them feel angry or unsafe. 

"A broken heart...fear for the future," Susan Bolen said."I have a lot of close friends who are in the LGBT community who are afraid to go out today." 

"I started feeling sadness - I felt overwhelmed and angry and I started having immediate concerns for people that I love," Naomi Johnson said.

Organizers say people came out Thursday night to "fight for a better future."

This protest was scheduled to go on until midnight.

There are more protests and a "People for Unity" meeting at the Statehouse planned for Saturday and Sunday.
