    Thousands of protesters have gathered in the streets of the US city of New York for the third night in a row to voice their opposition against the victory of Donald Trump in recent presidential election, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to the New York Post newspaper, eight people were arrested for disorderly conduct. Some 2,000 people gathered in the city’s Washington Square Park and marched up to Trump Tower, where hundreds of other protesters had already gathered.

    Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.

    On Thursday, anti-Trump protests were underway in Dallas, Texas. On Wednesday, Trump’s opponents gathered in various US states and in such major cities as New York, Chicago and Seattle to express their opposition to Trump’s victory in the elections.
