Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets of several US cities to protest against the election of Donald Trump, according to a Sky news report.
Many shouted the slogan “Not my president”. Others burned orange-haired effigies of the businessman.
They screamed “Not my President” and expressed concern about what was happening to their country – brandishing placards calling on the public to “fight racism”.
In Oakland, California, protesters smashed the windows of storefronts and threw objects at police in riot gear, who responded by throwing chemical irritants back.
Police in Chicago set up blockades to stop 1,800 protesters from gathering outside the Trump International Hotel.
The Trump campaign is yet to respond to the protests. In his victory speech, the Republican said he would be president for all Americans, adding: “It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
