Post-Election Protests Erupt Across the Country

Summary from AllSides News Team

Protests broke out in cities across the country on Wednesday, in some cases leading to clashes with police. Demonstrators on both sides called for counting every vote, while some sought to halt vote counting. Some supporters of President Donald Trump did both, chanting “stop the count” in Michigan and “count those votes” in Arizona. The National Guard was called in to Portland, Oregon after local police declared a riot, and New York City police arrested about 50 people in connection to post-election violence. Right-rated outlets published more coverage on riots and violence; coverage in left-rated outlets tended to describe such incidents as “heated.” Coverage in left-rated outlets also tended to point out Trump supporters’ “opposing goals.” Coverage on all sides paid particular attention to pro-Trump protesters outside a voting center in Phoenix, AZ.
