Thousands of angry demonstrators from coast to coast took to the streets of US cities on Wednesday night to protest against the election of Donald Trump. Dozens of people were arrested during the rallies, many of which targeted Trump’s properties.
In Trump’s home city of New York, thousands of demonstrators marched from Union Square to the president-elect’s residence at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, blocking streets and prompting police to erect barricades.
At least 65 people were arrested in Manhattan, according to NBC New York.
On the West Coast, demonstrators in Los Angeles assembled at the 110 and 101 highway interchange, blocking traffic. Many shouted “Hands up, don’t shoot!” at police.
Police in riot gear were deployed and 13 protesters were arrested, according to local media. An earlier rally and march in the city was attended by more than 5,000 people, many of them high school and college students.
