Now that we know who the future president of the United States is … Donald J. Trump, the world has turned upside down suddenly. While most of the country is satisfied, there are still those who are disappointed at the results. Some are afraid for their future and others are hopeful, our country is divided.
Recently, thousands of people around the U.S. have been protesting against Trump’s win. New York was one of the places, it also happened in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. and in several states across. People are already getting arrested and many people have become violent in the streets. Lots of chaos and vandalism has been occurring and people are fearing for their safety during any kind of protests. A little after protesting started in Los Angeles, 13 people were arrested. These protests are being called anti-Trump protests. Teens are also gathering in front of the “Trump Tower”,were he currently resides, to protest against his win. This took place on November 15, 2016 in New York. These kids are protesting against the win of the president outside of his home where he is sure to notice. Hundreds of secondary students are protesting against Trump’s win in Washington D.C, people have really taken the time and effort to go against this state wide argument.
The future is surely uncertain for the moment, but in my opinion we should be patient with our new president-elect. Nobody knows what types of changes will be made at this point, but all we can do is hope for the best and support him as our future president.
