As most of us know by now, Donald J. Trump has won the 2016 US Elections. Even though Hilary Clinton won the popular vote by 0.7%, Trump reached 270 electoral votes before her. This outcome has caused massive protests all over the country against the results of the election. They are denying the results by chanting, “we reject the president-elect” in front of Trump Towers. Recently, a protest in Portland, Oregon was deemed a riot due to the violent behavior that was taking place. Several arrests were made and non-lethal bullets were shot into the crowd. Later, a protest took place in Chicago in front of Trump Tower chanting, “immigrants are welcome here, no hate, no fear.” The election has show how divided the United States really is and how both sides carry very strong views. Because Donald Trump is still just the President-elect, we will have to wait until January to see what exactly he will do with his new position and how the people of the United States will react to it.
