High school students in Montgomery County protest Trump's election


Hundreds of students at a Maryland high school walked out of class and into the streets Monday morning to protest Donald Trump’s election as president, a march that gained strength as their peers from nearby schools joined them.

The demonstration involving Montgomery County students was among numerous protests in the Washington area and around the country since Trump’s surprise victory in the Nov. 8 election. Students at Woodrow Wilson High School in the District say they will leave their Northwest school at midday Tuesday, with plans to protest at the new Trump International Hotel a few blocks from the White House.

Students at Montgomery Blair High School streamed onto the school’s football field about 10 a.m. Monday for a walkout that soon turned into a march along University Boulevard. The procession grew larger as it drew students from Northwood and Albert Einstein high schools and headed into Wheaton and downtown Silver Spring.
