"Not my president!" was the rallying cry in cities nationwide. "No Trump, no KKK, no fascists USA!" was chanted by thousands on the streets of Chicago; "Stop Trump's hate!" was shouted by demonstrators in downtown Boston; and a crowd of largely Latino high school students chanted "The people united will never be defeated!" in Spanish at Los Angeles' city hall.
Many protesters held signs expressing solidarity with Muslims, Latinos, LGBTQ people, women, and other groups insulted or threatened by rhetoric from the Trump-Pence ticket during the presidential campaign.
Rallies took place from Kansas City to Austin to New York to Seattle, among many other locales, and were largely peaceful, with few arrests reported.
Participants and journalists shared images of the massive demonstrations throughout the night on Twitter:
