The election of Donald Trump represents unknown territory in American politics. After a vitriolic campaign the Republican nominee was swept into office in what has been called one of the biggest political upsets in American history.


Miami joined the growing list of cities to host Anti-Trump protests Friday night, following president-elect Donald Trump’s victory last Tuesday.  Miami Police said there were more than 2000 people involved.  

That crowd included FAU student Caitlyn Rittenhouse, who said she has concerns about a Trump presidency as a member of the LGBT community.
