    Major traffic delays and street closures are being witnessed all throughout lower Manhattan as thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters march towards Trump Tower on Wall Street in New York City on the evening of Inauguration Day.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — The anti-Trump protests in New York on Friday have remained peaceful so far with elevated police presence and metal railings blocking off sidewalks and parts of the streets.

    The crowd chanted "Hey Hey, Ho Ho! Donald Trump has got to go!"  and "Stand Up! Fight Back!" was the earlier reprise.

    Hundreds of protests, demonstrations and rallies have been taking place throughout the country on Friday, the day Donald J Trump was sworn in as the 45th US president.
