Thousands of anti-Trump protesters block I-94 in Minneapolis
Several thousand anti-Trump protesters blocked Interstate 94 in Minneapolis for about an hour Thursday night, causing a major traffic backup in both directions. From about 8 to 9 p.m., throngs of protesters who had marched onto the heavily traveled road after a rally at the University of Minnesota chanted and hoisted signs, some of them sitting on the road, others locking arms and facing lines of police officers.
They eventually left the freeway via Cedar Avenue. The protest, while often angry, was peaceful. No one was hurt, and no one was arrested. It marked a second night of passionate rallies and marches in the Twin Cities and nationwide over the victory and views of U.S. president-elect Donald Trump.
In reaction, Trump tweeted Thursday night: “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”Petition for Electoral College to Make Clinton President Tops 2m
