>> We reject the President-elect!>> Over the weekend, thousands in cities across the country took to the streets to protest America's new President-elect. In cities like New York, LA, Chicago and Washington DC, distraught voters decry Trump's divisive campaign rhetoric that many say have led to a recent spike in reported hate crimes.

>> Go away! Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Donald Trump, go away!>> Meanwhile, huge crowds have marched in the streets for days to condemn his promises to, among others, ban Muslims, deport millions, and punish women for getting abortions.
