Demonstrators against Donald Trump protested the outcome of the presidential election outside Trump Tower in New York City on November 12th, 2016.

The street surrounding Trump Tower was closed off due to hundreds of people protesting Trump winning the election. A majority of people in attendance held up signs targeting Trump.

Many read “#OurAmerica” and “Love Trumps Hate.”  Protesters also chanted “not my president,” “we reject the president elect”, and “my body my choice” among many other phrases.

Although the protest outside Trump Tower was nonviolent, there were some around the country that were the opposite. According to CNN, a shooting and the arrest of 71 people took place in Portland, Oregon over Trumps win of the election.
