Thousands across the US in major cities are protesting the election of Donald Trump. Hundreds in Union Square in Manhattan, New York are showing their opposition, with women chanting, “P***y grabs back!” There were also reports of flag burnings, vandalism and arrests. Protests are taking place coast to coast, with demonstrations reported in Los Angeles, Oakland, Seattle, DC, Austin, Boston and Chicago.
