Protesters, including many Americans living in France, took to the streets Saturday in the Eiffel Tower neighborhood behind a large banner "Paris against Trump."

Youssef Al-Moughrabi, born in California and studying in Paris, told The Associated Press that "we are not contesting election results. But in every democracy I believe there is a government and there is an opposition, in a healthy democracy, and we are the opposition."

Many placards could be seen in the crowd with messages against racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, "homophobia" and "white nationalism."
