The Los Angeles march was one of several similar gatherings on Sunday across California and the nation.

Organisers say they believe the president has violated the US Constitution and obstructed justice.

One banner called the president an "Illegitimate Corrupt Puppet."

Marcher John Meranda told the Los Angeles Times he has attended five recent anti-Trump marches. The 56-year-old says he's most recently frightened by the Republican proposal to cut billions of dollars from the Medicaid program.

A smaller group of pro-Trump protesters gathered nearby outside Los Angeles police headquarters. The Trump supporters say they're unconcerned about allegations that Trump tried to thwart an FBI investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
