US Election 2020: Protests in New York, Portland, other cities
Protesters have marched through the streets of several American cities in response to President Donald Trump’s ‘aggressive’ moves to challenge the outcome of the US presidential election.
In Minneapolis, New York, protesters blocked a freeway, prompting arrests.
In Portland, a large crowd gathered on the waterfront to protest Trump’s attempted interventions in the votes currently being counted.
About 150 pro-Trump protesters, some of them armed in Phoenix gathered outside the county recorder’s office where a closely watched count of votes that could help determine the outcome of the election was being conducted, New York Times reports.
Also some suspected supporters of the United States President, Donald Trump, said to be armed, protested at Maricopa County Election Department, Arizona, saying that Adrian Fontes, the county official who oversees elections in Maricopa County, was improperly failing to count some ballots, thereby, costing Trump votes in Arizona.
