Two police officers in Oakland were injured, while two patrol cars were burned by protesters taking to the streets chanting slogans against the new elected Donald Trump, said a police spokeswoman. Objects were also thrown by the protesters at police who were in the riot gear; they set small fires and smashed windows in the downtown areas, showing this disgust.
In Los Angeles, protesters in thousands marched the streets, burned a giant papier-mâché of Trump head in the City Hall front and others spray painted curse on the Los Angeles Times building and on the vehicles of the news organizations.
Rainbow signs and flags bearing “Time to Revolt”, messages waved above the crowd, and the drivers cheered by honking their support. However, Obama vowed to work assuring a smooth transition for the elect-president.
