Thousands took to the streets in multiple cities on Wednesday to protest the election of Republican Donald Trump in the presidential race.
In New York, protesters made their way to Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan. Hundreds more gathered at a Manhattan park and yelled, “Not my president!” Reuters reported.
Protesters in Los Angeles sat on the interchange of the 110 and 101 highways that lead into the city, blocking traffic. Police in riot gear tried to move them and 13 individuals were arrested, a CBS affiliate reported.
More than 6,000 protesters blocked traffic in Oakland, California. Two officers were injured as demonstrators burned trash and smashed storefront windows, a spokeswoman for the Oakland Police Department told CNN.
Close to 2,000 demonstrators filled the streets in downtown Chicago. In Seattle, police responded to a shooting with multiple victims near the site of anti-Trump protests.
Groups also gathered in Philadelphia, Boston, and Portland, Oregon, and Austin, Texas.

Predominantly Latino students walked out of classes in Los Angeles and marched to City Hall chanting in Spanish, “The people united will never be defeated.”
Many of the protesters are a part of the “Dreamers” generation whose parents entered the country with them illegally, and who are afraid of being deported, school officials said.
A representative from the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for a reaction.
