Donald Trump will face some of the most hostile opposition to ever confront a new president, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The newspaper says Trump's critics are in combat mode as if the election campaign never ended. It notes demonstrations are planned and activists are calling for ongoing "resistance."

A Women's March in Washington is expected to bring more than 100,000 protestors to D.C a day after Trump is sworn-in.

Meanwhile, money is flowing into liberal causes. Planned Parenthood took in 315,000 donations in the months after Trump was elected — 70 percent came from new donors, according to the newspaper.

The American Civil Liberties Union recorded $35.3 million in post-election donations as of Jan. 4. That is up from $3.6 million over the same time period a year ago, the newspaper says.

As for himself, Trump also continues to behave as if the campaign never ended, the Journal points out.

"For weeks, he has continued to lob provocative tweets about his critics and the media, derided people who supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, reveled in his election victory and took a victory lap of 'thank you' rallies across the country in December," the Journal says.

And it notes, his approval ratings, while on the rise, are the lowest of any president-elect in recent history.

But others are eager to defend the incoming president. Mark Meckler, a conservative involved in the founding of the tea party, claims the anti-Trump activists are trying to delegitimize his presidency.

"It's disgusting and is only serving to solidify the support that Trump and Republicans have garnered," he is quoted by the Journal.

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports high-profile actresses and singers are now expected to take part in the women's march planned for Jan. 21.

America Ferrera, Cher, Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Amy Schumer and Julianne Moore are all expected at the Washington event.
