30 people detained in US nationwide anti-Trump protests
Thousands of people marched in the streets of New York City Nov. 9 night to protest President-elect Donald Trump, weaving through traffic in midtown to get to Trump Tower, where police braced for the crowds, NBC 4 New York reported.
As they weaved through the streets of midtown to get to Trump Tower at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, protesters faced threats of arrest from NYPD for blocking vehicular traffic.
At least 30 people were arrested at the two Columbus Circle and Trump Tower demonstrations, according to police. The majority of arrests appeared to be for disorderly conduct.
Similar anti-Trump protests were being held in other US cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington and Boston.
