Not Our President {Video} Anti-Trump Americans Protest Nationwide Turns Into A Riot Love Trumps Hate

Published On November 11, 2016 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

For the third night in a row, anti-Donald Trump demonstrators took to the streets in several big cities and on college campuses across the United States.
About 4,000 protesters assembled downtown late Thursday chanting “we reject the president-elect!” the Associated Press reported.

The protest was mostly peaceful until demonstrators met with an anarchist group, after which demonstrators vandalized buildings, kicked cars and knocked out power, KGW-TV reported.

On Twitter, Portland police said many protesters were “trying to get anarchist groups to stop destroying property” and that “anarchists” were refusing to do so. Demonstrators repeatedly chanted “peaceful protest.”

Officers ordered protesters to disperse after the demonstration turned into what they called a riot, citing “extensive criminal and dangerous behavior.”

At about 6:15 a.m. ET Friday, the president-elect tweeted: “Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud! ”

It was a change of tone for Trump, who weighed in on the protests Thursday evening, complaining that he took part in a “very open and successful presidential election” but now “professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”

Similar protests broke out across the country:

• In New York, hundreds of protesters gathered near the iconic Trump Tower for the second straight night to express their anger over the election of the businessman.

The crowd was notably young. The organizers were not yet old enough to vote, but said that they wanted to inspire young people to voice their opinions and understand that they can shape the future.
“We’ve got to protest,” said organizer Elijah Newman, 16, of Brooklyn, as he stood with hundreds of other Millennials.

“It’s not just Donald Trump — it’s the system of education,” he said. “New York City is like a megaphone to the entire world. It’s important that we’re protesting here because it will inspire and influence other people to start protesting.”

• In Los Angeles, protests continued Thursday as organizers claimed they were saving their energy for the weekend, The Los Angeles Times reported. Hundreds marched onto a busy highway and brought traffic to a standstill there late Wednesday night, prompting the city’s police department to arrest several demonstrators. The protest was mostly peaceful, but some vandalized property, threw bottles and launched fireworks, the Times reported.

• In Denver, protesters briefly shut down Interstate 25 near downtown. Police said demonstrators made their way onto the freeway and traffic was halted in the northbound and southbound lanes for about a half-hour. Protesters also briefly shut down interstate highways in Minneapolis and got into shoving matches with police in Oakland, Calif.

• In San Francisco, high-spirited high school students marched, chanting “not my president” and holding signs urging a Trump eviction. They waved rainbow banners and Mexican flags, as bystanders in the heavily Democratic city high-fived the marchers from the sidelines.

• In Philadelphia, protesters near City Hall held signs bearing slogans like “Not Our President,” “Trans Against Trump” and “Make America Safe For All.”

• In Louisville, about 500 people turned out at a protest while in Baltimore, hundreds of people marched to the stadium where the Ravens were playing a football game.
Meanwhile, dozens of students from Texas State University rallied on their campus against Trump.

Holding signs, some of which read “Make America Free Again” and “Tear Down the Fascist,” the students gathered on the quad of the campus in San Marcos, Texas, about 30 miles south of Austin. Some chanted, “What do we need? Love! When do we want it? Now!” Others argued with Trump supporters who waded into the crowd. The gathering appeared to be generally peaceful.

Rudy Giuliani, a top Trump surrogate, described the thousands of anti-Trump protesters that have taken to the street as “a bunch of spoiled cry-babies.”

“Calm down, things are not as bad as you think,” Giuliani said of the protesters in a Fox & Friends interview Thursday.
