Donald Trump Protests Shut Down LA's 101 Freeway, Police Arrive With Riot Gear

As we reported earlier, protests against Donald Trump have started to form across the U.S. as people react to his presidential election victory.

Unhappy citizens are making their voices herd in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

Now, the protests have spread to downtown Los Angeles, where thousands of people marched on the 101 Freeway on Wednesday night (November 9).

Around 10 p.m., the freeway was shut down, CBS reports.

Some protesters burned a pinata of Donald at City Hall, and one person wrote “F–k Trump” on city bus.

Police arrived on the scene with weapons and began taking people into custody around 11 p.m.

Protests have also sprung up in Oakland, Boston, Portland, and Dallas.

    This is one of “their” goals, to keep us divided. It works wonderfully on stupid individuals. And 99% of them are so.

    How embarrassing for Clinton to have these Americans behave so anti democratic in supposed support.

    Those are not protesters, those are criminals and police must use all their «tools» to deal with those criminals.

    As much as I detest Trump, this is a time we need to come together. We have two months to figure out what we are going to do. Hoping that he fails is like saying you hope the captain of the ship sinks… we are all on the boat together remember that.
