Demonstrators, angered by the election of Donald Trump as US President, began demonstrations across the United States, and even globally, as they marched Saturday as they voiced opposition to the new leader and his proposals.
The largest, the ‘Women’s March on Washington’ is the largest planned, attracting protests to march through Washington. Other satellite demonstrations, many also dubbed as a ‘women’s march,’ occurred throughout cities in the US, along with large international cities, such as London and Brussels.

The day of the inauguration saw riots by self-proclaimed anarchists as they broke windows and destroyed and burned cars and other properties. Many of the rioters wore black clothing and masks to prevent their identification. At least 217 people in Washington have been arrested for riots occurring just prior to Trump’s swearing in.
