Anti-Trump Protests Break Out Across Country

In the wake of the close presidential election on Tuesday, protests broke out across the company in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump, reports ABC News.

In New York, protestors gathered in Union Square and then marched to Trump Tower, where they called for President-elect Donald Trump to be impeached, reported the New York Post. Protestors also gathered outside the Trump International Tower and Hotel at Columbus Circle.

They were not only angry at Trump, but also at those who voted him, shouting profanities like ““F—k Florida” and “f—k Indiana and New Hampshire,” along with “f—k Mike Pence,” and “f—k Giuliani.”

In Chicago, protesters marched down North Michigan Avenue, at one point filling all six lanes, to block the entrance of Trump Tower there, reported the Chicago Tribune.

The crowd shouted chants of “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascists USA” and “Not my president!”

In California, protests erupted at UCLA and UC Irvine almost immediately after the election was called for Trump, reports KABC Los Angeles. People also protested in downtown Oakland and Los Angeles, where people set a piñata in the image of Trump and an American flag on fire.
