Thousands of protesters took the streets of twenty U.S. cities across the country to express their disdain and denouncing the win for President Elect Donald Trump.
From New York to California, Chicago to Washington, protestors took to the streets and stayed steady in New York outside of Trump Tower marching to Union station. Standing on street signs and climbing utility poles.
Authorities said at least 6,000 people were marching through the streets, setting fires and chanting “Not my president” “Fuck Trump, he’s not my president” and “We Reject the president elect”
From Boston, MA to Seattle, Washington protestors are taking their anger and frustrations of the outcome of this election to the streets.
Trump hasn’t even been sworn into office yet and already thousands of non-supporters are angry and frustrated with the majority who voted Trump into office. So the question is, how was Trump elected? Did voter suppression play a role in this election?
In his post-election victory speech, Trump said that he would be the president for all Americans, and that it was “time to come together as one united people.” This will be a challenge especially since he ran his campaign on a platform of turmoil, hatred, bigotry and sexism.
