Frustration over the decision at the ballot box turned into anger in the streets Wednesday night as thousands of Americans protested Donald Trump’s Presidential election victory.
Protests were held in at least a dozen cities across the United States overnight.
People took to the streets on the east coast in cities like New York, Boston and Philadelphia, in the mid-west in Chicago, in the American heartland in Kansas City, and on the west coast in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
The largest of last night’s protests were in New York and Chicago.
“I can not tolerate that man as the president of this country, I will not, I will never accept this,” said Chicago protester Kristy Rawson. “I don’t know if it’s two years before he get impeached, I don’t know if it’s four years, I don’t know if it’s eight years, I will never accept this.”
A group of protesters stood outside the White House holding candles, singing and listening to speeches.
So far, a total of 15 people have been arrested at the protest in New York.
In California, flames lit up the sky in as thousands of protesters burned a giant papier-mache Trump head in Los Angeles and started fires in Oakland intersections.
Later, several hundred people blocked one of Los Angeles’ busiest freeways linking the downtown and Hollywood.
