NEW YORK-Americans on Thursday continued to protest a stunning presidential election victory by Donald Trump as he struck a humble tone in a first vis-à-vis meeting with Barack Obama.
Anti-Trump demonstrations took hold in at least one dozen cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Seattle after the business mogul became the president-elect early Wednesday.
Trump responded to the “unfair” protests via Twitter.
“Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!” he tweeted.
Trump also weighed in earlier about his meeting with Obama, saying: “A fantastic day in D.C. Met with President Obama for first time. Really good meeting, great chemistry. Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!”
Meanwhile, in front of his Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, protesters yelled into the night, “Impeach Donald Trump”.
In Los Angeles, demonstrators took to the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy, the Los Angeles Times reported.
A second day of protests in front of the Trump Tower in New York saw demonstrators chanting, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Donald Trump has got to go”.
In downtown Boston, thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters poured out to voice their discontent, shouting chants of "Trump's a racist" while carrying signs that read "Impeach Trump" and "Abolish Electoral College”, according to media reports.
