MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Protests in Portland have been ongoing since Wednesday when Donald Trump emerged as the winner in the US election, triumphing over Hillary Clinton, who was his Democratic rival, and was considered a favorite by many pollsters and analysts.

"Weekend Curfew for kids under 14 is 10:15 pm, midnight for those 14-17 years old. Make sure your kids are home safe!" the press service said on its Twitter account.

The press service added that police officers had already detained "dozens of people" throughout the night, saying about 19 detained people by 08:00 GMT and numerous detentions later in the day.

During the presidential election, Trump secured at least 290 Electoral College votes, which is 20 more than 270 votes required to win the presidency.
