Anti-Donald Trump Protesters Get Violent in Portland (Video)

Police call it a riot as roughly 4,000 protesters chant, “We reject the president-elect”

Police fired rubber bullets into a crowd of anti-Donald Trump protesters who started to get violent on Thursday night in Portland, Oregon.

Protesters refused to disperse after a demonstration and police termed it a riot as roughly 4,000 protesters were in the streets. “We reject the president-elect,” they were chanting.

The video shows what is referred to as “glass projectiles being thrown at police,” police in riot gear and even footage of arrests. Vandalism of cars and business were reported and police used the term “anarchist” to describe the riot in which 26 people were arrested.

Anti-Trump protesters have taken to the streets of America since he pulled a stunning upset over Hillary Clinton to become the president-elect. On Thursday evening, Trump complained that the people protesting the results of the election were “very unfair,” but early Friday morning he tweeted that he loved their “passion” for the country.

Protests have occurred in other cities including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

The Portland Police Department used Twitter to keep people updated on the protests, which they declared “unlawful” at 11:32 p.m. Thursday night.
