PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Latest on nationwide and international protests against President-elect Donald Trump (all times PST):
About 300 people protested Donald Trump’s election as the next American president outside the U.S. Embassy by the German capital’s landmark Brandenburg Gate.
The peaceful protesters Saturday waved signs with slogans like “Love Trumps Hate” and “Make Love, Not Trump.”
Ahead of national elections in Germany next year, the anti-immigrant nationalist Alternative For Germany party, known as AfD, has been gaining support. One protester’s sign read “Germany: Don’t make the same mistake in 2017, AfD=Trump.”
AfD co-leader Frauke Petry applauded Trump’s election, saying Friday it offered “a historic opportunity to address erroneous global economic and social developments of the past decades.”
President Barack Obama meets in Berlin next week with Chancellor Angela Merkel and several other European leaders, and is expected to confront global concerns about Trump’s election.
Police in Portland, Oregon, say a person has been injured in a shooting on a Willamette (wil-AM’-it) River bridge during a protest of President-elect Donald Trump.
Authorities say the person has been taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and police are looking for the suspect.
They say the suspect was in a vehicle early Saturday morning on the Morrison Bridge and there was a confrontation with someone in the protest march.
A police news release says the man got out of his vehicle and fired multiple shots injuring the person before fleeing, likely in his vehicle.
Since Trump’s election Tuesday, thousands around the country, spurred by fear and outrage, have taken to the streets in largely non-violent protests.
