I doubt that. All these protestors are against Trump and will not accept anything he says. From what I am hearing they are all hoping that on December 19th when the Electoral College actually meets and officially casts their votes that they vote Hillary in as the next president and dump trump. I think this will be a huge wake up call to all Americans and then America as we know it will forever change.
Streets in the core of downtown Washington were brought to a standstill Saturday by women marching to protest Donald Trump's presidency and his history of derogatory comments about women.
Protesters filled Pennsylvania Avenue, the same street Trump walked down a day before in his inaugural parade, as they moved in the direction of the White House.
Several celebrities spoke, including activist Gloria Steinem, director Michael Moore and Madonna, who welcomed participants to the "Revolution of love."
Similar protests unfolded throughout the day in New York, Boston, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles. The marches in the United States, London and around the world amounted to a remarkable protest against Trump on his first full day in office. Ref. CNN.
Yes, it's time to come together as Americans. That said, freedom of speech and the right to express it in peaceful protest are some of the rights I spent 22 years in the Army defending.

And to clarify, I'm an independent with views that match both Democratic and Republican stances and no love for either of the candidates in the election.

America’s Second Civil War
It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War. In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I once there was World War II, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War. This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs in another critically… Ref. Source 7x.
