Trump Protesters Shut Down Streets All Over The Country


Protesters angry with the results of last night’s election have taken to the streets to demonstrate in cities across the nation.

Anti-Trump demonstrations have been reported in Oakland, Berkley, Pittsburgh, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland.

In Portland, Oregon, at least 200 protesters shut down I-5 for about an hour early this morning before police in riot gear moved them off the interstate onto the Broadway Bridge. One protester was hit by a car but not seriously injured.

During protests last night in Berkley and Oakland, hundreds of people took to the streets to demonstrate. One woman was hit by a car on Highway 24 and suffered serious injuries. An effigy of Trump was reportedly burned at a demonstration in Oakland.

In Seattle, protesters blocked the streets on Capitol Hill. Many protesters even laid down in the roadway to impede the flow of traffic.

In Pennsylvania, hundreds of University of Pittsburgh students took to the streets near campus to demonstrate.

Thousands of University of San Francisco students marched on the streets to protest. They forced the temporary closure of 19th Avenue.
