    The boards came down on storefronts in Washington DC and New York City Monday after fears of widespread looting and riots following Election Day failed to materialize. 

    Pictures show workers in both cities pulling down the window protections, which were put up last week in anticipation of potential political violence. Storefronts in Los Angeles and Denver had also boarded up their windows.  

    Experts had said the unrest could be widespread regardless of whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden won. Democrat Biden was elected the 46th president on Saturday. 

    There were scattered protests stretching from Washington, DC, to Seattle, but no widespread unrest or significant violence.

    Washington DC: Fears of violence from right-wing groups were stoked after members of a militia were charged with plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat.

    President Trump is now facing pressure to cooperate with President-elect Joe Biden’s team to ensure a smooth transfer of power when the new administration takes office in January. 

    The General Services Administration is tasked with formally recognizing Biden as president-elect, which begins the transition. But the agency’s Trump-appointed administrator, Emily Murphy, has not started the process and has given no guidance on when she will do so.

    That lack of clarity is fueling questions about whether Trump, who has not publicly recognized Biden’s victory and has falsely claimed the election was stolen, will impede Democrats as they try to establish a government.

    There is little precedent in the modern era of a president erecting such hurdles for his successor. The stakes are especially high this year because Biden will take office amid a raging pandemic, which will require a comprehensive government response.

    ‘America’s national security and economic interests depend on the federal government signaling clearly and swiftly that the United States government will respect the will of the American people and engage in a smooth and peaceful transfer of power,’ Jen Psaki, a Biden transition aide, tweeted Sunday. 

    Armed Trump supporters wielding assault rifles and crucifixes protested across America over the weekend in growing support for the President’s claim the election was stolen.

    Hundreds rallied with their MAGA flags in downtown Phoenix on Saturday; ‘Stop the Steal Rallies’ have also taken place in Michigan, Georgia, North Dakota and Pennsylvania.

    The day after the election crowds of activists mobilized on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue as part of several ‘Protect the Results’ demonstrations that kicked off in cities across the country including Philadelphia, Portland, Seattle, Detroit and Los Angeles.  

    Footage shared by a New York Post journalist on social media showed one woman spitting at a cop which resulted in another skirmish between activists and police.

    The woman, later identified as Devina Singh, 24, was heard berating the officer, telling him: ‘F**k you, fascist,’ before spraying him with her saliva. The cop in turn shoved her against a building before placing her in handcuffs.  

    But by Saturday it was mostly the Democrats taking to the streets in jubilant displays, celebrating Biden’s win.

    The founder of the Oath Keepers, another heavily armed right-wing militia group, vowed to ‘stand up and protect people on Election Day.’ 

     In New York City, boards went up over many Fifth Avenue storefronts on Friday. In downtown Manhattan, some buildings that remained un-boarded during violent demonstrations in June were covered up in anticipation of even greater unrest.
