Protests continue in cities nationwide, including Philadelphia, more than a week after Donald Trump’s presidential victory. Hundreds of people gathered at Thomas Paine Plaza on 1401 JFK Boulevard Saturday and marched to the National Constitution Center.
“This event is to protest president-elect Donald Trump, vice president-elect Mike Pence & the Electoral College,” an organizer wrote. “Trump is a racist, bigoted, misogynistic, narcissist who makes fun of the disabled and he does NOT represent me or the hundreds of millions of people who did NOT vote for him.”
The Trump protests in Philadelphia have remained peaceful and without incident for the most part though police detained four people during a demonstration in Center City Wednesday.
