Anti-Trump protests continue for 5th day

Anti-Trump protests continue for 5th day   Washington : Anti-Donald Trump protests continued for the fifth day across the US opposing the Republican's shocking victory in last week's presidential election.

In Manhattan, a group gathered on Sunday to demonstrate against the President-elect's immigration policies, CNN reported.

"The main purpose is to tell Donald Trump he can't just deport 11 million undocumented people," a protestor said.

"They're here to stay and we stand in solidarity with them."

In Los Angeles, around 100 people peacefully protested in front of the CNN building.

A small protest also took place Sunday afternoon in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Sunday was the fifth day of protests since Trump won against Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November 8 Presidential Election.

Protesters are upset about Trump's policies on the environment; lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) rights; immigration and other issues.

Some are also questioning the legitimacy of Trump's victory by noting that although he took the Electoral College, Clinton won the popular vote.

On Saturday, 8,000 people took to the streets in Los Angeles. The march was peaceful, unlike a Friday night protest by 1,000 people that resulted in the arrests of 187 adults and eight juveniles, Los Angeles police said.

Violence also flared again Saturday night in Portland, Oregon. Seventy-one people were arrested, mostly on charges of disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer, CNN reported.

In New York, thousands of people marched in Saturday and gathered outside Trump Tower, the President-elect's home in Manhattan, where they chanted and proclaimed that he was "not my President".
