Anti-Trump Protests Spread throughout the United States

Washington, November 14 (RHC)-- Protests are growing across the United States following last week's presidential election, in which Donald Trump was declared the winner.  Over the weekend, 10,000 people marched in New York City.  And eight thousand more marched in Los Angeles, where 200 people were arrested. 

Protesters also took to the streets in Philadelphia; San Francisco; Oakland; Chicago; Oklahoma City; Salt Lake City; Springfield, Massachusetts; and in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. 

In Portland, Oregon, police attacked protesters with pepper spray and flash-bang grenades and arrested 71 people.  One protester in Portland was also shot and wounded during a confrontation on a bridge that was blocked by the protests. 

In Traverse City, Michigan, a police officer was put on paid leave for intimidating protesters at a "Love Trumps Hate" rally by driving around the demonstration displaying a Confederate flag while he was off duty.
