Washington, DC: In an ironic turn of events, Democrats who are unable to come to terms with the stunning victory of Donald Trump have erupted in protests, vandalism and, in some cases, even violence across the United States.
More than 5,000 people came for an anti-Trump rally in Boston organized by the far-left. Their Facebook page said:
“Donald Trump is the next President of the United States. We need to immediately start fighting against him. We need to build a movement to fight racism, sexism, and Islamophobia.”
The protest was being lead by the Boston Socialist Students, an organization that claims the economic problems affecting the United States are due to capitalism.
Reports of violence by left-wing protesters emerged from Oakland, California, Portland, and Oregon where cars were set on fire, windows broken.
Tweets calling for the assassination of Donald Trump could be seen.

The Los Angeles Times reports that there were riots in San Francisco, Oakland, and several other California campuses:
Demonstrations were also reported in downtown Los Angeles, at UC Santa Cruz and UC Irvine.
A throng marching in Oakland chanted, “Who’s got the power? We got the power.”
Protests in the Bay Area city centered downtown and also saw a march along Highway 24, where a woman was struck by an SUV. She was rushed to the hospital with “major injuries,” California Highway Patrol Sgt. Matt Langford told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Small fires in Oakland also prompted the closure of a Bay Area Rapid Transit station.
There was also news of 5 people being shot-at during anti-Trump protests:
Though none were injured, reports of vandalism came from Chicago as well:

Others trended #CalExit saying that Californians, who overwhelmingly voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, wanted to secede from the United States.
The group leading the gathering is “Yes California,” a campaign which aims to put a referendum on the 2018 ballot to exit the nation.
Seriously. What are the steps to make this possible??? We must secede!! #Calexit
