Ever since President-Elect Donald Trump won the election, anti-Trump protests and riots have been dominating the news. But where exactly have these protests taken place and which ones are planned for the future? Protests are happening all over the country, including on college campuses and at Trump buildings. In fact, Turkey issued a travel warning to the U.S. on Saturday, citing the anti-Trump protests as a concern. More protests are planned, all the way up to Inauguration Day. We have a list of the major protests that have occurred or will be occurring, along with videos and photos. We’ll be updating this list over the coming days as more protests are announced.

Trump himself had a unique response on Twitter about the protests. After he stated that he thought the protests were being incited by the media, he later changed his tune and said he hoped they could all come together eventually:

The reaction to the protests have been mixed. Some are saying that they’re glad people are protesting, so that their voices are heard and people who are concerned about their safety will know that they’re supported. Others are complaining about the protests and feel that the protesters lose their message if they turn violent. Still others are voicing worry that the protesters have the wrong focus and should be protesting the Democratic National Committee for its role in the election outcome, rather than the election itself. What do you think?

Here is the list of Trump protests that have occurred or are planning, in alphabetical order by state. If you hear of any additional Trump protests, let us know in the comments below.

Austin had a huge protest that shut down local roads for a while on Wednesday.

Dozens of students also protested at Texas State University on campus, about 30 miles south of Austin.

Trump’s already breaking his campaign promises on Obamacare–surprise, surprise! Can’t wait til the Trumpanzees get hit with all his other broken promises. Of course, when Donnie Boy breaks them, they’ll be sure to scream it isn’t Donnie’s fault!


I work for a living .and they are raising my insurance .why should all working people pay for others who want everything free.if you dont buy it you get fined and they take your money anyway.its a joke and our country cant afford it its already put us in debt


Nice try defending slick willie/ CrooKilary with your DEMORAT LIES! Corrupt slick was IMPEACHED for a Lot more Serious things than that!!


Given a family of 4 making near $100K/year qualifies for a subsidy, Obamacare is affordable . As far as I’m concerned, I’m sick and tired of people not buying healthcare insurance, and then having my taxes raised to pay their Medicaid bill because they were medically indigent. Take some responsibility people!. I work for a large employer, whose healrhcare pricing is effected by the economies of scale, and my husband and I still pay, after the employer’s portion, nearly $7K/year, before any co-pays, which usually adds up to another $1K.. We are not rich people, but we are not irresponsible people either!

Ronald Viens

You are totally correct to point out that insurance ,by and large, is a racket which promises protection and assistance until it is necessary. Then the denials of coverage, limitations of approved health care, and the litigation to stall payment begin with a vengeance. Auto insurance is worse. Paying premiums year after year for coverage I never had to use left me $65,000 poorer, with nothing whatsoever to show for it. With life insurance, you can get coverage that returns the premiums you pay back to you after policy matures. With interest. Auto insurance is a black hole. Most health insurance is too, whether or not a result of the Obama administration.


What a nice wide mouth she has, definitely could be put to a much better purpose.

Connie Chastain

That is not why you are protesting — and you are not protesting, anyway. You are rioting. And you are rioting because leftism and progressivism love destruction.


Connie, how do you know if I’m protesting, much less my motives for doing so? Oh yeah, you’ worship at the Altar of Trump, and likewise you have a God complex too.


we know that you’re an ignoramus lacking up top …that we know for sure


Tuesday’s election was a moral apocalypse. This is its result. You reap what you sow . . . better get used to it Trump supporters. it’s only the beginning. We may even question Donald’s birth certificate.

Irma Jean Shirdon

We will get used to it. You and those riotous,vandalizing, loudmouthed scum that have absolutely no respect for America are why we voted for DJT. We are tired of paying high taxes for all of you who live on soc services. We are tired of paying for all the crimes and devastations perpetrated on innocent people, we are tired of your yada – yada rhetoric and we are tired of your stupidity. You don’t even know why you are fighting against DJT. You just do it because your friends do it. You folks are destroying the markers on soldiers grave and painting on public structures and destroying your own people and neighborhoods. You are thieves in the night without the brains God gave a dead cat. So go crawl off to the nearest country that believes in destruction and devastation as you do for you most definitely are not an American and have no American values when you follow someone who has repeatedly sold this country out in acts of treason, for her own personal gain, so huge your little pea brain will never be able to comprehend. Your vote for killary is a vote for communism and satanism.. The free ride is over. To live in this Country people will want jobs and opportunities to progress in this land, and they will take pride in America and in our freedoms. If you do not desire this then leave.


Funny, I was at a protest today with other parents and their children,and it was totally peaceful. Must be listening to that Fox News. I do take “pride in America and in our freedoms/” As far as not knowing why I am fighting against DFT, au contraire, Irma Jean. I am fighting against the morale apocalypse that DJT’s election represents. That’s why I was out protesting. If you can’t accept my Constitutional right to do so, maybe YOU should be the one to leave the country . . . or at least take and pass a high school civics course, so you don’t deny citizens their Constitutionally-guaranteed rights!. I assume you are are upset with the vandals who vandalized HRC’s father’s Hugh Rodamn’s tombstone. No, Trump supporters will never bring something like that up. You Trump supporters are going to develop a thicker skin, like non-Trump supporters learned to over the last 18 months.

Finally, to use your words, Irma Jean, “those riotous,vandalizing, loudmouthed scum that have absolutely no respect for America” SUCH AS YOURSELF, ARE WHY I, and the majority of Americans DID NOT VOTE FOR DJT aka, Satan.


DJT is Satan? Wow! Well HIllary’s people worship him then. Either way…the amount of ignorance coming out of hillary supporters is unbelievable and really frightening because it means this ‘millenial’ generation in America are basically just a bunch of left wing nazi idiots.


Oh give me a break. You voted for Trump to see how it would enrich and benefit you. Now take all of your warped views of what freedom is and go move to Russia. I hear Trump supporters are quite welcome there.


Irma Jean, I applaud you…as an American, A Woman and a Very Senior Citizen. I don’t believe these protestors/rioters know what they are doing or worse yet, why. They are being manipulated by pot stirrers and dissidents who are looking for any excuse to bluster about and cause problems. Most are probably co-dependent on their families and have been living a life of entitlement for way too long. Others just do it for something to talk about and put on social media. I will be 77 this year and have no clue who raised these people to act in this horrific manner. What a legacy to leave for their children…..

Sam Roth

Nothing that you say is backed up by fact. All you do is insult people because you don’t have anything intelligent to say. The same way Trump spews a bunch of garbage out of his mouth, none of which is based on fact.


I have yet to see a single salient point made by these Anti-Trump movements that wasn’t about their own support for fascism and hate. Talk about your 1984 double speak. These idiots are using slogans like “no kkk” while wearing hoodies and threatening people. They are shouting “love trumps hate” while preventing parents from getting home from work to their children and beating people who ‘have voted for Trump’. Personally, I think Obama is a piece of shit for temporarily allowing the police and drivers on interstates permission to run these people over. he doesn’t because he wants civil war. There is no validity to any of these protests. Just a bunch of spoiled kids ruining their parents house because they didn’t get the toy they wanted for Christmas. This is exactly what douchebags like George Soros wants — raise a generation of kids as idiots and then have them destroy their own country. Of course you’re all too ignorant to see this.


Maybe the protesters are just taking a page from the Trump supporters playbook!


My, my Connie. We’ve gone from protesting to rioting all in the same sentence. I guess it’s “protesting” when a Trumpanzee does it; “rioting” when someone protests Trump and his minions.


There are cowards all over the internet, they hide their faces and use anonymous names to pick on people.


Anonymous@ 1:30 a.m. . . . you do realize that your posting is “anonymous,” so, I take it that you are referring to yourself?


To all the Clinton sore losers, you can get a 100 pack of diaper pins on Ebay for $3.85.


Clinton lost the battle . . . we’ll see how the war ends! BTW, for your truth-denying Tumpettes, horse blinders are also available on Ebay.

Doug dorite

I would take a dump in those diapers and feed it to trump supporter

John Gardner

From what I see, none of you snowflakes know what you’re protesting. You love an excuse to be seen and heard. You’re worthless. If only you snowflakes knew what hell America would be under Killary… She’s a marxist, and a Socialist.. Do you people do ANY research? Ok, you’ve cried because trump said “grab that woman by her pussy” If you think about it.. Most of Americas last 2 generations are total pussies… You youngsters think we can survive by hugging and loving one another.. Sick of you pussy whipped little kids thinking you know something about our country. Go get your 15 minutes of fame.. Just know this, by participating, you’re now on a terror watch list… That’s a proven fact. Ciao Snowflake.


Creat, I see why you voted for Trump . . . you’re both equally vile. Can’t wait til he’s impeached!


Ahhhh,wrong person,slick willie the Sexual Abusing Predator was also IMPEACHED and there r still ppl who support barry/CrooKilary/slick willie!!?? WOW!!


JRT, who do you mean by “also impeached?” There have only been two Presidents that have been impeached in the history of this country, Andrew Johnson, and Bill Clinton. Both were found Not Guilty. While Clinton’s behavior was reprehensible, it did not constitute an impeachable offense. Trump can’t be impeached yet, he hasn’t been sworn in . . . just give him time.!


Be hard to do considering majority in senate and house have a republican majority and Hillary said we were the uneducated deplorables lol

Ronald Viens

Let’s give DJT a little bit of time to demonstrate just how incompetent and beholden to the top 1 percent he really is. This nation has picked itself up from the ashes before and carried on, and it shall do so again. Sadly, those who are blinded by the ideology of the so-called ‘ neoconservative movement ‘ will have learned nothing of substance. Some people NEED to learn from their wallets, not experience. I would like to know who it was that decided that there are only liberals and conservatives. Just saying.


He’s already backpedaled on Obamacare and the wall! But when he actually does, I’m sure it will be someone else’s fault! LMAO

Natalie SMith

You know he has to commit an act of treason or break the law What got Bill Clinton is he had sex in the white house that was the crime whereas Kennedy would have multiple affairs while in office which is not illegal you just cannot have sex literally in the oval office. To include all impeachments Nixon was impeached for Watergate where he broke into the headquarters of the democrats, both are crime. He cannot be convicted in the court of public opinion or by the senate. So your Stuck with him Like it or not he is your president after the electoral college votes in December that right google it they haven’t voted yet


Nice try defending slick willie/ CrooKilary with your DEMORAT LIES! Corrupt slick was IMPEACHED for a Lot more Serious things than that!!


No, Jim, “Slick Willy,” was impeached for lying under oath about the Lewinsky affair, not for some treasonous act. He was also found Not Guilty by the House of Representatives. By while we’re on the subject of modern-day sex scandals, Newt Gingrich was concurrently boinking his mistress, while he presided over a trial to impeach Clinton for the same conduct. After fellow Republicans turned on Newtie, then-incoming Speaker of the House, Robert Livingston announced he would have to resign from Congress before even serving as Speaker because his, numerous own adulterous affairs became public. Finally, Dennis Hastert, another Republican became House Speaker, only later to be found to be a pedophile. Of course, we all know, that sexual predatory behavior is only wrong when a Democrat engages in it. When a Republican does, we elect him President


Natalie, do you even read your comment? WTF are you trying to say, anyway? BTW, Nixon was never impeached. He resigned before being impeached.
