“Not My President”: Anti-Trump Protests Are Erupting All Over America RN

 
SHOCKINGLY, a number of protests broke out shortly after the announcement that Donald Trump had won the presidency of the United States, and some are still ongoing. 
Protest marches, blackouts, vigils and sit-ins started occurring in Pennsylvania, California, Oregon, and Washington, and more are planned for today (Wednesday evening US time) in a plethora of different locations. 
There’s currently a candlelit vigil going on outside the White House in Washington DC. According to Twitter, a few hundred people – “mostly young people” – are chanting, singing, and demonstrating peacefully. 

Protestors have been demonstrating in New York City all day:

The protest in Los Angeles was reportedly one of the biggest, with over 2000 students from UCLA swarming the streets yelling anti-Trump sentiments and chanting ‘Not my President‘. 
They began marching as Trump gave his acceptance speech in NYC, and the demonstration ended after a Trump piñata was set on fire in a bin outside a Westwood Boulevard store.
In Berkeley, around 1500 students from Berkeley High School (half of the student body) and their teachers walked out of class in order to protest. Students walked holding Mexican flags,

In Oregon, protestors also marched on the streets in downtown Portland, forcing traffic issues and delaying local train services. 
Police said some groups were burning flags, and others were sitting on the road in order to completely stop traffic. 

In Boston, a few dozen marched and sang in front of the State House, singing, “Build bridges, not walls!” 

Even celebrities are joining in – Lady Gaga made a stand by protesting out the front of Trump Tower in New York City, holding a ‘Love Trumps Hate’ sign and standing on a sanitation truck. 
And this incredible image is a birds-eye view of protestors outside Trump Tower:

But it’s not just America, turns out – protests went down at the US embassies in other countries, too:
