Third Straight Day of Protest in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hundreds of high school students have rallied against President-elect Donald Trump in downtown Minneapolis.
The crowd chanted "No Donald Trump, no KKK, no racist USA" while gathered Friday in a park outside of U.S. Bank Stadium, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings.
Protesters carried signs reading "Trump — Make America Hate Again" and "Natives Against Trump."
Seventeen-year-old Melody Bowers says she left classes at St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts to join the protest. Though she is not old enough to vote, Bowers says she came out to unite with other Trump opponents.
While she acknowledges that the Republican won, Bowers says "that doesn't mean you can't be angry, and it doesn't mean you can't be scared."
It's the third day of protests against Trump in the Twin Cities.
