WASHINGTON (AP) -- About two dozen protesters have kicked off a day of diverse demonstrations in the nation's capital with a rally demanding that President Donald Trump take strong action against Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The protesters who gathered in Lafayette Square park across from the White House want Trump to retaliate for Moscow's interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Some protesters wore T-shirts that said: "We're not PUTIN up with it!"

After the rally, the protesters began marching to the nearby home of the Russian ambassador.

A short distance away, a much larger pro-Trump demonstration is starting up on the National Mall.
