Local leaders from around the nation's capital gathered Thursday on Pennsylvania Avenue to protest at the site of the Old Post Office Pavilion, which Donald Trump is converting into a luxury hotel.  

Their message was simple: "Dump Trump!" This is the latest in the widespread backlash against Donald Trump for incendiary remarks he made about Mexican immigrants last month in a speech announcing his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.
