Detentions of protesters began in New York

New York police began to selectively detain protesters moving along the streets of Manhattan. RIA Novosti reports.

According to the agency’s correspondent, the crowd of protesters demands that all votes in the US presidential elections be counted, insults the police and calls for the dissolution of the police. The police at times grab young people from the crowd, knock them to the ground and handcuff them. Other policemen at this moment stand in a ring around the detainee.

Earlier it was reported that in New York, Americans massively took to the streets with the demand to “count every vote” after the US presidential election on November 3. In addition, opponents of the incumbent President Donald Trump shouting “Trump and Pence out!” began to gather near the White House.

In the United States, the counting of votes for candidates for the presidency of the country continues. The current head of state, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are fighting for the top post. In many states, the difference between presidential candidates is tenths of a percent. So far, Biden has 264 electoral votes, and Trump has 214. Despite the fact that the final results of the presidential election are not yet, Trump has already congratulated his voters on the victory. Biden’s headquarters also expressed confidence in victory.
