A group of protesters gathered in downtown Dallas, Texas. The local newspaper "The Dallas Morning News" reported on Thursday that demonstrators were advocating against distraction and violence which they claimed come with Trump's presidency.
Demonstrations began in cities across the country early Wednesday morning, within hours of the announcement that Trump has pulled off a surprise win in the Electoral College over rival Clinton, whom many assumed would win the contest easily. Clinton is believed to have won the popular vote, though final tallies are still underway.
Many in the US were put off by Trump's campaign rhetoric, which often included divisive and derogatory comments about minorities and women. The president-elect's proposals to overturn Barack Obama's work on health care and immigration reform have also alarmed many US progressives.
