Security Concerns arise during Patriarchal Visit amid unrelated anti-Trump protests

MINNEAPOLIS 11 November 2016 (ORCNS) - Security concerns arose today when protesters opposed to the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the U.S. disrupted traffic in front of the hotel where the Cardinal Patriarch of St. Stephen was staying in Minneapolis today. This marks the third day of such protests in the city, which have stopped traffic on on a major interstate and other roads. The Cardinal was in Minneapolis for diplomatic meetings and was staying somewhere near the government district. Although his visit to the city was entirely unrelated to the Presidential election, the Cardinal's security unit advised precautions, and he was unaffected by the protest.
