Three anti-Donald Trump protesters.

About 200 anti-Donald Trump supporters were arrested soon after the swearing in of America’s business mogul as the 45th president of the country on Friday.

The protesters had running battles with the police near Capitol Hill, Washington DC, where Mr. Trump took over from former president Barack Obama, who had completed his two terms in office.

Local police said they arrested 217 people.

The protesters claim that Mr. Trump does not respect women and represent the majority of Americans. In a leaked video in the run up to the U.S presidential election last November, Mr.Trump appeared to have said some unpalatable things about women.

The president defeated the Democrats’ candidate, Hillary Clinton, who was widely tipped to win the poll.
