HOUSTON - A couple hundred protesters called on President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday afternoon to take drastic measure to unite Americans.
“Love Trumps Hate” was the message at Discovery Green. People held signs, protesting against the Republican businessman who bested Democrat Hillary Clinton in this week's presidential election.
“I think the biggest problem about him isn't just policies, it's that he's misogynistic, he's racist, he's xenophobia,” Ed Bingman said.
Bingman and his daughter Laurel, hoped Trump apologizes and, in his actions, shows true empathy for the average American and stops what they say is the promulgation of hate.
“As long as he allows that to continue in his name, there's no way he will be able to unite us as a country and a peaceful transition,” Laurel Bingman said.
Born in India, Snehal Damor moved to the United States at 15 years old. For him, Trump's plans on immigration hit home.
“My mom didn't rape anyone. Neither did. I haven't robbed anyone. Neither, did my mom,” Damor said. “Because they don't have documents, doesn't mean they're not humans.”
Damor knows Trump will take office, but first wants change.
“If you're gonna be in office, act right and read the Constitution again. If you need (to), go back and look at American history again,” Damor said.
KPRC2 reached out to Harris County Republican Party officials, but they had not responded.
