‘Not my president!’

Demonstrators marched in cities across the United States on Wednesday to protest against Donald Trump’s surprise election win, blasting his campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.

In New York, thousands filled streets in Manhattan as they made their way to Trump Tower, his gilded skyscraper home on Fifth Avenue.

Hundreds of others gathered at a nearby park and shouted: “Not my president!”

Crowds also protested in Los Angeles, Oakland, downtown Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and Portland on Wednesday evening.
