Screaming, marching and chanting across the US nation. People aren’t taking long to respond to Donald Trump being the President-elect.

“I think that the protests are childish,” sophomore Anna Bossaller said. “The protesting isn’t going to change who has been elected, so I think it is pointless.”

Many are unhappy with the fact that Donald Trump is the President-elect and are attempting to change the outcome of the election. Although there are people that are not very happy with Trump running the nation next year, there are some that are content with the fact.

“I am for protesting as long as it’s not a fight,” senior Hayley Laubinger said.

The Anti-Trump protests are claimed to be peaceful, although some have turned violent. People have done things such as marching and carrying signs that have “Not My President” painted on the front, leaving classes to go protest and once even burning an American flag.

“Although the protests are the way they are, I don’t think they will change the outcome of the election,” Laubinger said. “They are too biased to do anything.”

What if the protesters actually did succeed with their goals of keeping Trump out of the White House? There would be some mixed feelings across the nation. There would also be some who wouldn’t have an opinion and wouldn’t know how to feel.

“If the protesters actually did succeed with their goals, I think I would feel pretty indifferent,” sophomore Morgan Gordy said. “I don’t think I would really be happy or sad because I don’t really like either candidate.”

Overall, many people agree with the fact that the protests are rather silly. They won’t change the outcome nor will they get Trump out of Washington D.C..

“It is what it is,” said Gordy. “You can’t change the outcome no matter how much you protest about it.”
