Thousands march in NYC to protest Trump
(AP) - At least 65 people were arrested after thousands of protesters marched in Manhattan and converged outside Trump Tower to denounce the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.
One group began at Union Square Wednesday night, while another started at Columbus Circle. Splinter groups of protesters then streamed into the streets causing massive gridlock as police mobilized to contain them under a light rain.
The protesters chanted "Not my president" and "hey, hey, ho, ho Donald Trump has got to go." They held signs that read "Trump Makes America Hate" and "Impeach Trump."
Some of the protesters cursed out key battleground states that Trump had won to secure victory.
Outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in midtown police installed barricades to keep the demonstrators at bay.
