Protesters had hit the streets across the American states chanting anti-Trump slogans following the electoral victory of the Republican candidate, Mr Donald J Trump in the Tuesday, November 8, 2016 election.
President Jonathan who took to his Facebook page to make the appeal, said “democracy is all about accommodation and the United States is a model for a free world”.
He said, “I appeal to Americans who are protesting on the streets after the emergence of Donald J. Trump as President-elect to give peace a chance. Democracy is all about accommodation and the United States is a model for the free world.
“All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product.
