From The New York Times: “BERKELEY, Calif. — Chanting “Not my president,” several hundred protesters streamed through the streets of Berkeley and Oakland in the predawn hours of Wednesday venting their anger at the election of Donald J. Trump as president. Demonstrations were also reported in Pittsburgh, Seattle and Portland, Ore.”

Earlier in  the day, several hundred students had marched across the University of  Connecticut Campus. Slogans like “Donald Trump is not my President,” while holding support immigrant posters and rainbow-colored flags.
We are seeing anger and disappointment as well as plans to fight Trump’s agenda, which includes the Mexican wall and banning of Muslims into America.  Eeman Abbasi is a junior psychology and neurobiology major at UConn.  “She says as a Muslim student she feels the American people told her Tuesday night that even though she was born in this country she doesn’t belong here.”
There was an estimate of 500 protesters in the UCLA area early Wednesday morning chanting anti-Trump expletives. The local police are reporting currently of no arrests. Berkeley, Irvine, and other UCLA campuses also had smaller protests.

Let me first let you know I love America, and what the Constitution stands for. I love history and am aware of the sacrifices our forefathers went through to make America this free country. I am appalled that any American would desecrate her flag, spit upon her history, or warp her great history for their own greed. So with that said, let me begin . NOT A REPUBLICAN NOT A DEMOCRAT. A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE! A REAL PATRIOT.
