Thousands of people have taken to the streets in several major cities across the nation in protest of Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 Election. Protests in New York, Chicago, and other cities are seeing a flood of people expressing their disdain for President-Elect Trump and expressing frustration with the process that put him in line for The White House.

The New York City protest is taking the bulk of the spotlight thanks to the presence of Trump Tower, with many people congregating outside the building and chanting against Trump. According to Buzzfeed News, the protests began small early in the afternoon and grew as the group moved towards Trump Tower:
The protest, which began Wednesday afternoon when hundreds gathered at Columbus Circle, culminated in a massive march through the streets to Trump Tower, where the crowd swelled into the thousands.
“Donald Trump go away; racist, sexist, anti-gay,” the protesters shouted at Columbus Circle, across the street from Trump International Hotel & Tower. “Pussy grabs back,” some yelled. “Donald Trump is full of shit, he can’t be the president.”
