Both Hillary Clinton and President Obama told the American people last week that Donald Trump is the president-elect and if he succeeds, the country succeeds. Many Americans, however, are not listening. Instead, they have chosen to march through the streets, destroy property and chant death wishes for Trump and his supporters.
At the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. some demonstrators chose to carry disgusting signs wishing physical harm on the First Lady-to-be.

In Oakland, one person was shot and police officers were forced to use tear gas after protesters threw "burning projectiles" at them. Elsewhere, demonstrators vandalized cars and smashed windows. The protests are turning into full-blown riots.One speech is not enough, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway insisted on Sunday's "Meet the Press." Both Obama and Clinton need to take action to tamp down on the growing protests across the country before they do anymore damage.
"(Trump is) there for them. And he is going to be a president that listens and takes the counsel of many different people, including those from the other side of the aisle," Conway told Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "... It's time really for President Obama and Secretary Clinton to say to these protesters, 'This man is our president.'"
While on the campaign trail, Trump pledged to be a "law and order president," suggesting he will not tolerate these mob-like protests.
For now, I'll leave you with Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk's astute observation.
