More anti-Trump protests across America


Portland has seen a third night of protests following the election of Donald Trump as the 45th US president.

There are reports that a man was shot in the leg on Morrison Bridge as demonstrators marched against Trump.

The unrest was described as a “riot” by police on Thursday citing “extensive criminal and dangerous behavior.”

In Miami hundreds of #NotMyPresident protesters took to the streets carrying signs and flags claiming the Trump victory will hurt women, the LGBT community and immigrants.

The march halted traffic and shut down streets, but was described as peaceful.

“Heads of State Can't Lead with Hate.” “Make America Native Again.”

In New York City artist Matthew Chavez covered the walls of the city’s subway with post-its to allow New Yorkers to express their thoughts on the election result.

Those using the subway mused on the outcome of the ballot:“Well, I feel a little sad and scared what’s going to happen in our country,” said one woman.

A young male commuter appeared very unhappy: “I’m pretty upset, pretty down. I think a lot of New Yorkers are. It’s very shocking to say the least. But we realize that we don’t live in a bubble and we got to get on board somehow.”

More marches have been planned to counter the Trump presidency and the Republican majority in both houses.

Rallies have been organised later today in New York and Los Angeles and a protest planned for Washington on Jan. 20, when the New York businessman succeeds President Barack Obama.
