(Worthy News) - Thousands of protesters filled the streets of cities across the U.S. Thursday for a second night of anti-Donald Trump demonstrations, with police in Portland, Oregon, declaring protests there had escalated and were being "considered a riot."
"Due to extensive criminal and dangerous behavior, protest is now considered a riot. Crowd has been advised," tweeted the Portland Police Department, which pointed the finger at "anarchists."
Although the protests in Portland began peacefully -- when thousands of people gathered at the city's Pioneer Courthouse Square and marched over the Hawthorne Bridge -- they soon became marred by criminal activity, according to police. [ Source ]
