Many youngsters and the college-going students came out and took a hold of the protest who were totally denying Trump as their president. In Los Angeles, a large protest beginning at Pershing Square continued to City Hall, and many protesters were detained after streaming onto the 101 Freeway near downtown. There were also reports of rocks and bottles being thrown by the police onto the protestors present out there. Protesters burned a Trump head in effigy and spray-painted news vans and the LAT building.

 

More than 10,000 people came out and shouted slogans against Trump at different places. Police security was tightened at some of the major cities of United States as protesters chanted “Not My President” and “No Racist USA.” The protests were mostly peaceful but at few places, it was an inch away from becoming violent. Seattle police said they were investigating a report of a shooting near the site of the protest in that city, but it may not have involved protesters.

 

Protests occurred throughout the day yesterday in several locales in California, particularly the San Francisco Bay area, where demonstrations in Oakland and San Francisco are on-going. Earlier in the day, half the students and teachers came out at Berkeley High School and into the city’s downtown.

 

It’s very much evident that Clinton supporters and trump haters are in great number; Artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Miley Cyrus were also present during the protest in New York. They fulminated against Trump and the system that allowed him to become president on the basis of an Electoral College majority, despite getting less popular votes than Hillary Clinton.
