Anti-Trump Protesters Gather In Cities Across The Nation

Anti-Donald Trump protests started in multiple American cities on Wednesday, the same day that students at several high schools and universities across the country walked out of classes.

The protests are taking place in at least seven major cities, according to CNN, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, New York and Seattle, among others.

Thousands of protesters targeted Trump buildings in New York and Chicago on Wednesday, chanting anti-Trump slogans as protests against President-elect Donald Trump popped up throughout the United States.

In Austin, Texas, protesters blocked a highway. Students burned a flag on the campus of American University in Washington, and they walked out of class in high schools and colleges across the country the day after the presidential election.

"Not my president, not today," was a chant heard at protests from Boston to Los Angeles.

In downtown Los Angeles, high school students crowded the steps of City Hall on Wednesday afternoon. Protester Brooklyn White was holding a sign that said "Hate won't win." The 18-year-old voted for Hillary Clinton and was disappointed.

"We can't let it stop us. If he's the president then fine, but if Donald Trump is gonna be it then he has to listen," she said.

At Berkeley High School in California, about 1,500 students walked out of classes Wednesday morning. In Des Moines, Iowa, it was hundreds of high school students who left class to protest of election results. In Phoenix, about 200 students from Carl Hayden High School marched to the state Capitol in protest.

Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 presidential election early Wednesday morning, defeating Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

    Now those emotionally challenged people understand how mature and intelligent people felt all those years that obumma was destroying the country. Funny thing is I don’t recall reports of riots and tantrums like we are seeing from this group of jerks. Tells you something doesn’t it! Time to return the USA to being great again despite the whining of the libs and the liberal ( & wrong) media.
