The win of Donald Trump has sparked protests in all major cities in the U.S. The protests started yesterday in Californian cities after Trump was declared win and spread all over other cities of United States like New York, Chicago and Boston.
According to BBC, Many shouted the slogan “Not my president”. Others burned orange-haired effigies of the businessperson.
In New York alone thousands people are protesting on the streets and the number is expected to double. 15 people are already arrested in New York after protesters marched to the Trump Tower protesting his policies on Immigration and Gay rights.
Protests were largely peaceful but in Oakland, California, some demonstrators smashed shop windows and threw missiles at riot police, who reportedly responded with tear gas while in Los Angeles a mass anti-Trump rally shut down a key freeway in Los Angles. In Chicago, Crowds have blocked entrance to the Trump Tower while in Portland, Oregon demonstrators have closed an inter-state highway.
Protests have continued to other major cities including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Seattle, Boston and many others.
