Police officers in the Bay Area were briefly overrun by anti-Trump protesters demonstrating prior to the politician's attendance at the California Republican Party convention in Burlingame, CA. this afternoon. 

A large contingent of protesters, mostly peaceful, packed the area outside of the hotel where Mr. Trump was scheduled to speak. Many carried anti-Trump banners and chanted anti-Trump slogans.

At one point, several protesters overran a police barricade and forced their way toward the front doors of the hotel in an apparent attempt to stop Mr. Trump from entering the hotel. 

Mr. Trump eventually made his way into the hotel through a back entrance.

This is the second time in two days that large numbers of protesters have descended upon Trump events in California.
