Presidential Election Protests


At least 500 UC San Diego students marched through the La Jolla campus and onto Interstate 5 early Wednesday to protest Donald Trump's presidential victory. . . . University police said the crowd turned out shortly after midnight and grew to include at least 500 people. . . . Protests made their way onto the nearby south Interstate 5 on-ramp from La Jolla Village, with at least some of them trickling onto the freeway, the [California Highway Patrol] said.

Thomas Gui, 20, said students who gathered were stunned Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States. "I was in disbelief. Everybody felt the same way. How could this have happened? I guess people wanted to show solidarity," Gui said" (Hernandez, 2016).
