There has been protest in several US cities since Wednesday’s emergence of Trump as president-elect.

The Republican, against the run of opinion, defeated the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton.

While Clinton won the popular votes, Trump got the support of the Electoral College, which decides who occupies the White House.

Since then, Americans have taken to the streets to protest the outcome of the election.

But Jonathan, in a post on his Facebook page on Friday, wrote: “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.

“While exercising their rights, I plead with the Great American people not to do anything that will impinge on the old and cherished values and traditions of the US on democratic ethos.”
