On Wednesday, the UK Mirror reported that Clinton supporters in Portland, Oregon, took to the streets to protest Donald Trump’s victory in Tuesday’s election. According to the Mirror, protesters were filmed setting fire to the U.S. flag while shouting “F*** Donald Trump.”
The Mirror added:
Footage also emerged of activists setting tyres and rubbish bins on fire, blocking main roads and lighting flares.
People also burned an effigy of the President-elect, who will be officially sworn into office in January.
Meanwhile, a young student has reportedly been hit by an SUV and severely injured during a march in Berkeley, with one witness claiming the crash was intentional, according NBC Bay Area .

Oregon Live reported:
The crowd — an apparent core of Portland State University students — started late Tuesday, gathered on the Hawthorne and Morrison bridges, then headed onto the freeway, where they stopped traffic in both directions for about an hour. Several cars slipped through the throngs, including one that hit a demonstrator who was standing in front of it. The man said he wasn’t seriously injured.
Police in riot gear arrived and waited out the protesters as they moved off I-5 and continued on the east side of the Willamette River before crossing back to the west side.
People shouted anti-Trump slogans and chanted: “Whose streets? Our streets.” Some tipped over newsstands and dragged them into the street, but others picked them back up.
Jim Ryan’s report did not mention the flag-burning and said the protest “appeared peaceful for the most part” with the exception of a few confrontations between motorists and protesters.
Some protesters, Ryan added, “smashed bottles and someone threw a flare at one point.”
That sounds peaceful, right?
