University of Florida students gathered at the school’s Turlington Plaza Monday afternoon to initially protest the election of Donald Trump as president, but the protesters were quickly met by Trump supporters.
Members of both sides used bullhorns to yell at one another in the middle of a circle comprised of maybe 150 or so students. Anti-Trump protesters chanted things like “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” and they were met with “Build that wall!” and “The Constitution is not for sale! Trump and Pence will prevail!”
UF’s Radical Student Alliance put on the protest, which started out with about 15 people but quickly grew during a class change before 1 p.m.
