Anti-Donald Trump protesters took to the streets Wednesday in at least 10 cities protesting the unprecedented win over Hillary Clinton.
Protests took to the streets in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn. and several other cities.
The protesters were expressing their frustration at the Trump’s victory over Democrat and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who won 228 electoral votes to Trump’s victorious 279.
The protests took an ugly turn on Wednesday night when five people were shot outside a convenience store in downtown Seattle. The shooter remains at large, according to the Seattle Times.

According to Mediate ,During the massive anti-Donald Trump protests held in California the day after Election Day, one woman CNN spoke to called for violence and death as a means to enact political change.
“If we don’t fight, who is going to fight for us? People had to die for your freedom where we’re at today. We can’t just do rallies, we have to fight back,” said Lily, a Latina woman from Los Angeles.
