ST. CLOUD -- As President Donald Trump takes his seat in the oval office nearly 100 St. Cloud residents protested Friday afternoon against his policies.

Organizer Ben Bourgoin says he doesn't agree with Trump's environmental policies.

"Anywhere from fossil fuels, to sexual assault, to appointing people with no experience to lead education in this country."

Bourgoin says change starts on a local level.

"I'm not here to say that he shouldn't be our president. I'm here to say that we're going to do what we can in the local presence that we have here."

Protesters started at Lake George and chanted along the sidewalks of Highway 23.
