Trump protesters damage businesses in Oakland
OAKLAND - Police arrested at least 11 people during anti-Donald Trump protests that spilled into the streets of downtown Oakland for a third straight night.
Police say protesters lit fires on streets and in trash cans, smashed windows and sprayed graffiti on at least seven businesses Thursday night.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that officers in riot gear stood across sections of a street, trying to limit the crowd's access to the city's central business district.
By 11 p.m., most protesters had returned to the plaza in front of City Hall, where they chanted against Trump's election and police. They numbered a few hundred, down from about 1,000 who attended an initial rally earlier in the day.
