ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Hundreds of protesters blocked roads near the University of North Carolina's campus in Chapel Hill to demonstrate against President-elect Donald Trump before marching to the nearby town of Carborro where they blocked Main Street. Protesters said their other concerns also included healthcare and the rights of transgender people. As protesters marched, some Trump supporters shouted their opposition to them. The student protest came one day after Trump named Jeff Sessions, a four-term senator from Alabama and former federal prosecutor, to lead the Justice Department, a move that triggered an outcry from civil rights groups as well as some conservatives outside Congress who are uneasy about Sessions' positions. Sessions, 69, was among Trump's earliest and staunchest supporter in the Senate and is expected to accept the cabinet post if confirmed.
