Pro-Clinton Americans in various cities are sternly carrying out anti-trump protests against the outcome of the November 8 elections.
CNN reports that some of the protest has tilted towards violence as there have been gunfire and a number of people hurt. However the anti-Trump protests have been largely peaceful and no arrests have been made.
The protesters have damaged some facilities, set wastes and Trump images ablaze in the streets as they kept chanting “Not My President, Not Today”. Some have placards with the chant written on it.
It was a heartbreaking and indeed indescribable feeling for the many American voters who would have loved to make history with Clinton as the first ever female American President.
During her concession speech, Hillary admitted how disappointing and painful the defeat was for her. She most importantly urged her followers to give Trump a chance to lead America, saying that America at this point owes him an open mind.
“We must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.”
Regardless of this plea, her supporters have decided not to go down without a fight.
Report says that an estimated 11,000 people across the country are protesting and rejecting the Trump presidency.
The Los Angeles Times reports that an estimated 2,000 people rallied at California’s UCLA. More protests were seen in cities like Philadelphia, Manhattan, Los Angeles, Chicago and others.
“We were very upset with the result and we didn’t want to feel like keeping quiet and we wanted to make sure we were heard in every way we can and make sure there is a representation of people who disagree with everything that has happened.”– Colin Buchanan, Oregon University.
