New Yorkers protest Trump's victory: See photos


New Yorkers turned out in droves on Wednesday to protest Donald Trump's shocking presidential victory.

The Republican defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton following a long, bitter campaign season. Trump won a number of key states -- including Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio -- in a stunning Election Day upset.

The news prompted New Yorkers to take to the streets with handmade signs as they marched from Union Square to Trump Tower on Wednesday, some chanting, "Not my president."
