LAGOS NOVEMBER 13TH (URHOBOTODAY)Thousands of marchers took to the streets of Los Angeles on Saturday to protest the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.
It marked the fifth day of demonstrations in cities nationwide over Trump, a Republican who upended conventional political wisdom by defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday. Trump’s attacks on people who are in this country illegally and his comments about women, among other things, brought many of the protesters to the streets, they said.
Hours after Saturday morning’s anti-Donald Trump march came to an end, a few hundred lingering protestors gathered on the steps of City Hall to share their thoughts on the election.
Passing a megaphone among them, some demonstrators talked about the importance of finding a direction forward, others said they wanted a female president, and still others admitted to feeling as if they had let Hillary Clinton down.
One woman, who said she was transgender, warned listeners against getting violent.
“If we get violent, we get stopped,” she said.
A man urged the group to sign a petition on Moveon.org to abolish the electoral college.
“Trump didn’t win the popular vote,” he said. “I don’t understand why we aren’t pushing that harder.”
