Anti-Donald Trump Rally The Election Aftermath

From New York to Los Angeles, thousands of people took to the streets denouncing Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the U.S. presidential election. Last weekend, a crowd assembled at the City Hall in downtown L.A. The protesters and organizers said the demonstration is about speaking out against Trump’s draconian positions on deportation and other measures. The protesters expressed themselves peacefully.

Here are some of the best photos from the event presented in a slideshow. The music in the background is the late Nigerian musician and activist Fela Kuti from his classic hit song titled Upside Down, a compelling song that put a spotlight on people frustrated about bad government.

"We know that Donald Trump's comments have been used online for recruitment of terrorists. We've heard that from former CIA director Michael Hayden, who made it a very clear point when he said Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant for the terrorists." Hillary Clinton

The protesters who were from all walks of life and economic backgrounds, spanned from different age groups. It is proof - some of Trump critics argue - that the president-elect is unpopular across generations. That said millenniums surpassed any other age demographic at the anti-Trump rallies.

Jason King, a Donald Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, attended the fiery anti-Trump protest. A reporter asked him if he could explain to people who might have difficulty understanding when America stopped being great. His answer sparked a tense moment.

According to Edison national election poll, 54 percent of women voted for Hillary Clinton, much higher than the 42 percent of women who voted for Trump. But when the women’s vote is divided by race, Clinton gained significantly more votes from African-American and Latina women. It was largely this demographic poole that drove the so-called gender gap against Trump.

I just start kissing them. . . Grab them by the p---y.” President-elect Donald Trump

The disappointment expressed by this protester couldn't be more transparent.
