Some also demonstrated against their own President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The protesters waved Mexican flags and held anti-Trump signs during the march on Sunday through central Mexico City. Some signs read "Respect Mexico" and "We are all Mexico."

Trump angered many Mexicans by describing some who attempt to illegally enter the United States as "rapists" and "drug dealers" during his campaign for the presidency.

Trump has pledged to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and criticizes U.S. companies who outsource jobs to the country.

People also protested in several other Mexican cities, such as Tijuana, Monterrey and Morelia. No violence was reported.
