Tens of thousands disappointed with the results of the latest election are protesting Donald Trump in many cities across the USA:

In response to Trump’s victory, a shocking win fueled by the rural roar of a dismayed white America, tens of thousands in at least 25 US cities — including New York and Nashville, Chicago and Cleveland, San Francisco and Seattle — shouted anti-Trump slogans, started fires, and held candlelight vigils to mourn the result. …
Many of those demonstrations continued early Thursday morning and led to dozens of arrests.

“People are furious, not just at the results of the election, but the rhetoric of Donald Trump,” Ahmed Kanna, an organizer for Social Alternative Berkeley, told CNN’s Don Lemon. http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/10/politics/election-results-reaction-streets/index.html

Demonstrations outside Trump’s properties

In New York, authorities estimated that as many as 5,000 people protested the real estate mogul’s victory outside Trump Tower. They included pop star Lady Gaga, a staunch Clinton supporter.

Carrying signs and reciting chants denouncing the president-elect as racist, and misogynistic, thousands of protesters took to the streets in cities across the U.S. Wednesday to protest Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election. There were few reports of violence or arrests.

A large crowd packed New York City’s Fifth Avenue, directly in front of the Trump Tower where the president-elect lives, waving signs reading “Love Trumps Hate.”

Another group gathered across from Trump’s soon-to-be-home, the White House in Washington. Just down Pennsylvania Avenue, at the newly-opened Trump Hotel, protesters chanted “Say it loud, say it clear: Refugees are welcome here.”

Elsewhere on the United States’ East Coast, demonstrations were held in Miami, Philadelphia and Boston, where protesters carried signs calling for Trump’s impeachment …

On the opposite side of the country, protesters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle marched and blocked traffic to express their anger over Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton.

In the Midwest, protests were held in Chicago, Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Omaha, Nebraska and Kansas City, Missouri.

Chicago resident Michael Burke told the Associated Press he believes Trump will “divide the country and stir up hatred.”

Even Texas, a solidly Republican state, saw demonstrations in its larger cities, including Dallas and the state capital, Austin.

In Oakland, California, demonstrators burned trash in the streets and some store windows were smashed. …

On Wednesday, Clinton told supporters at a gathering in New York that while the election results will be “painful for a long time,” the nation must give Trump a chance to prove himself.

“We owe [Trump] an open mind and a chance to lead,” she said.

President Obama also called on the nation to put aside partisanship.

“We are not Democrats first. We are not Republicans first. We are Americans first,” Obama said. http://www.voanews.com/a/thousands-march-in-anti-trump-protests-across-us/3590456.html

Calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment, before he assumes office, shows that many protesters do not wish to give Donald Trump a chance–despite calls by US President Obama and defeated candidate Hillary Clinton, to give Donald Trump a chance.

While protesters are saying that Donald Trump is stirring up hatred, it appears a lot of protesters are doing that themselves.

The Bible teaches:

9 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Enough, O princes of Israel! Remove violence and plundering, execute justice and righteousness (Ezekiel 45:9)

9…You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:9-10)

As I have been writing for some time, I expect civil unrest and riots in the USA. In the video I made yesterday morning, 13 Ways President-Elect Trump is Apocalyptic, I also warned of civil unrest coming to the USA. Also in a post yesterday morning I warned :

Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure and has offended many includingminorities and Muslims. Expect civil unrest and rioting. The Bible prophesies “There shall be terror within” (Deuteronomy 32:25). (Thiel B. How Will President-Elect Trump be Apocalyptic? Two false prophets exposed! COGwriter.com, November 9, 2016).

Do not be surprised to see more violent protests in the future (Ezekiel 7:23-24; Habakkuk 2:8).

The USA needs prayer and national repentance. Beyond that it needs to believe the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.
