Thousands of demonstrators gather around the streets of the cities across the United States of America, as they cry out their protest against President-elect Donald Trump. Protesters chanted "Dump Trump", "Not my president", "build bridges, not walls" and "love trumps hate" for according to them, the President-elect threatens their civil and human rights.

According to the Huffington Post, the largest rallies were found in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. The organizers of the rallies said that they wanted to push on with the momentum after numerous nights of protests, which was caused by the surprising results of the Presidential elections where the real-estate tycoon won.

According to PJ Media, one of the Presidential-elect's focal points of his campaign is the issue about immigration and the deportation of undocumented immigrants which triggered a lot of protesters. "I'm out here for my undocumented friends," said 19-year old Spencer Smith to CNN during a protest rally in Atlanta. "I've seen people oppressed. And this is like a heartbreak of the American dream for me," says Evelyne Werzola, a 46 years old immigrant from South Africa. "So I'm fighting to keep what America has stood for alive."

Even people from the LGBT community joined in the protests, waving rainbow flags, and holding "Keep Love Legal" signs. Alex Seedman, a 25 year old member of the LGBT community in Los Angeles, called Trump a fascist and suspected he would repeal marriage equality. One thing though despite of all the protests, the demonstrations have been mostly peaceful thus far.

Although, there's a case in Portland, where some protesters broke store windows, sprayed graffiti and damaged vehicles as they clashed with the police, who used tear gas and rubber bullets to stop the riots, which resulted to dozens of protesters arrested and only a handful of police injured. A protester also in Portland was shot and sustained non-life threatening injuries during a march of demonstrators across the Morrison Bridge. Police stated after that the gunmen who were responsible were believed to be associates of a criminal gang.
