The former secretary of state’s advantage had crossed the one-million mark by November 15 and ballooned to 1.5 million by Sunday. That would only fuel all the protests going on around the country. Protests have been largely peaceful, though police have made arrests at some protests.
In Seattle, protest and vigils have been held daily during the week following election night. Seattle Public Schools estimated 5,000 students participated in the walk out.
It states: “The Foreign Emoluments Clause in Article I, section 9, provides that no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States] shall, without the Consent of Congress, accept of [sic] any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State”.
Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in a memo asserted that the electoral victory of its candidate Donald Trump was truly a national victory.

By Nov. 15, the Democratic nominee’s advantage had crossed the 1-million mark and ballooned to 1.5 million by Sunday.

“Trump plans to limit deportations: The Trump administration is going to proceed slowly and carefully with the deportation of undocumented workers”. Trump said he would study the issue and hinted that if, after study, he was to moderate his views, his voice would be influential with climate skeptics. “Well, I think there is some connectivity”, Trump said Tuesday.
Mr. Trump received 87 percent of Clay County’s vote.
To be honest, I don’t fully understand this resentment. A group of computer scientists and election lawyers have gone to the Clinton campaign with claims that voting may have been compromised in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. I can’t help that, but I don’t care. She stated that “these groundbreaking victories are a bright spot of this election season”.
And yet, with vote continuing to be counted in California, Clinton has now expanded her popular-vote lead to more than 2 million (64.4 million to 62.3 million), the widest gap in raw vote in the history of the handful of times when the popular vote went the opposite direction as the Electoral College.
