For the second night in a row, they gathered outside of Trump Tower in Chicago, America’s second city. They marched through downtown, blocking lanes of traffic and chanting “not my president,” “we reject the president elect” and “Donald Trump has got to go.”
After thousands turned out on Wednesday, more than 100 showed up to protest on Thursday. Additional demonstrations are planned for the weekend.
“We don’t want Donald Trump,” said Christian Jones, a 29-year-old factory worker. “Most people prefer Hillary Clinton. The electoral ballot is what counts right now, but she won a majority of a vote.”
The scene is being repeated across the United States. Protesters have rallied in the streets of major cities – sometimes clashing with police – in the dim hope of stopping president-elect Donald Trump from the entering the Oval Office.
