The Electoral College’s voting for Trump was accompanied by shouts of “Shame!” in states across the country. “These unprecedented protests made clear that Donald Trump lost the popular vote and has no real mandate,” explained the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s Adam Green. “Today’s show of resistance reminded the political world that Trump does not represent the will of the people—and it will embolden Democrats to fight Trump as he sides with big international corporations at the expense of American workers.”
Millions of Americans signed an online petition stating that Mr Trump was unfit for the Oval Office, while anti-Trump protesters gathered at state capitols across the country. In Pennsylvania, more than 200 demonstrators braved sub-zero temperatures, chanting: “No treason, no Trump!'” In Maine, protesters beat drums and waved signs saying: “Don’t let Putin Pick Our President.” In Madison, Wisconsin, demonstrators cried.
