GREENSBORO, N.C. -- About 60 anti-Trump supporters gathered on the campus lawns of UNCG to protest the president-elect on Friday night.

The group held signs and chanted "Not my president." Similar protests have been popping up across the nation.

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted about the protests.

"Love the fact that the small groups of protesters [last night] have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!"

Students at UNC Wilmington also held their own protest. Students carried signs and chanted as part of the protest at the campus.

College leaders released a statement to students that read in part, "We must honor each others rights and beliefs, political and otherwise. We must continue to build upon a dialogue about our differences - not use them as a rationale for close mindness or incivility."
