Politics

STORRS, Conn. (AP) – Several hundred people have marched across the University of Connecticut campus protesting Republican Donald Trump’s election as president.

Students, faculty and staff demonstrated Wednesday chanting slogans including “Donald Trump is not my president,” holding signs saying “support immigrants” and carrying rainbow flags.Related: Donald Trump’s victory sets off protests on both coasts

Many in the crowd expressed anger and disappointment, and said they plan to fight Trump’s agenda, including building a wall at the Mexican border and not letting Muslims into the country.

Eeman Abbasi is a junior psychology and neurobiology major at UConn. She says as a Muslim student she feels the American people told her Tuesday night that even though she was born in this country she doesn’t belong here.
