Democrats protest President-Elect Donald Trump nationwide

Stunned Democrats took to the streets late Wednesday after President-elect Donald Trump won his bid for the White House Tuesday.


Protesters targeted major cities, including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., in the second straight night of protesting the results of the election.


There were limited reports of protesters harassing reporters and Trump supporters in front of the White House Tuesday evening, but the protesters stepped it up Wednesday in front of the Trump International Hotel in D.C.


Protesters stopped the flow of foot traffic and harassed a well-dressed elderly couple, forcing them to walk on the street around the group as members shouted “fuck Trump,” and “how dare you support him?”

The crowd chanted “fuck Trump” repeatedly, while carrying signs that favored “immigrant workers.” A local Latino Trump supporter told The Daily Caller News Foundation he was ordered to move along by protesters because he didn’t support diversity.

“These people are protesting because there is a very real fear of Trump that needs to be addressed,” black activist Van Jones said on CNN Wednesday evening.
