The election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States sparked protests Wednesday night in at least 25 cities across the country, including Tampa.

A second protest is scheduled for Thursday evening, Nov. 10, in downtown Tampa.

A student-led organization is set to gather for a anti-Trump protest in front of the Sam Gibbons Federal Courthouse at 801 N. Florida Ave. in Tampa at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Students for a Democratic Society has announced an "emergency protest," opposing the new president-elect, according to the student group's Facebook page.

Wednesday night a march was organized in Ybor City, protesting the Trump's election on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Some of those who participated in the march expressed fear after the election of the businessman turned politician, who has never held office in government or served in the military.
