Once Donald Trump started picking up steam in his campaign, protests grew at an alarming rate.

It became commonplace for supporters to clash with protesters, often resulting in physical confrontations.

As Trump gets set to be sworn in as the next commander in chief on January 20, thousands of protesters are planning to attend to voice their opposition to the billionaire real estate mogul. In recent weeks, filmmaker Michael Moore has made it a point to encourage the protests, and has been a frequent guest on MSNBC to offer his support and announce his attendance in Washington, D.C. to take part in the event.
