Students Across The Country Protest Trump’s Victory
Demonstrations occurred in Oregon, California, and Washington D.C.
As soon as it became apparent that Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States, students and other opposed to his presidency took to the streets around the country to protest the results of the historic election.
Footage and images of late night protests were posted on social media, showing angry demonstrations on campuses in California and outside the White House in Washington D.C. Students chanted “Not my president,” and shouted insults at Donald Trump. More protests are planned for Wednesday at campuses around the country.
Students lit flares in Berkeley, California, filled the streets in Santa Cruz, California and demonstrated at the University of Oregon.
