Rowdy protests against Trump and his divisive campaign have spread to cities all over the country following his victory on Tuesday, leading to dozens of arrests and a complaint from Trump in one of his first public remarks as president-elect.
On Friday night in Portland, Orgeon, an unidentified man was wounded at 12.45am local time, as he and dozens of other protesters crossed Morrison Bridge during one of a number of demonstrations. Police said in a statement a man got out of a vehicle on the bridge, confronted and then shot the protester, who was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The suspect was still at large, police said.
Earlier in the night, for the second night in a row, Portland protesters blocked traffic and threw objects at police dressed in riot gear who responded with pepper spray and flash-bang devices. At one point, police pushed protesters back and appeared to take at least one person into custody, according to footage on a local NBC affiliate.
Hundreds marched in the streets of Los Angeles, blocking traffic as they waved signs and chanted “We reject the president elect” and “Whose streets? Our streets”.
