Over a thousand protesters marched in the streets of Manhattan and demonstrated outside Trump Tower to denounce the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.
Demonstrators marched in cities across the United States on Wednesday to protest against Republican Donald Trump's surprise presidential election win, blasting his campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.
The protesters chanted "Not my president" and "hey, hey, ho, ho Donald Trump has got to go." They held signs that read "Trump Makes America Hate" and "Don't Lose Hope." One protester burned an American flag, reported by Fox 5 TV channel.
The protesters held signs that read “Trump Makes America Hate" and “Impeach Trump.” A few climbed vehicles and light poles.
Authorities estimate as many as 5 000 people protested the real estate mogul's victory outside Trump Tower.
At least 65 people were arrested.
Los Angeles demonstrators also beat a Trump piñata and sprayed the Los Angeles Times building and news vans with anti-Trump profanity. One protester outside LA City Hall read a sign that simply said "this is very bad."
Late in the evening several hundred people blocked one of the city's busiest freeways, U.S. 101 between downtown and Hollywood.
City News Service reported that 13 people were arrested as officers in full riot gear walked the protesters off the freeway.
As it was reported earlier, Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. The Republican nominee has achieved one of the most improbable political victories in modern US history.
