LIVE VIDEOS: Trump Tower Protests in New York City & Chicago

Protesters descended on Trump Towers in both New York City and Chicago the evening of November 9 to express outrage over the election of Donald Trump as president. “Hey, ho, Donald Trump has got to go,” they chanted.

When some people saw cameras, they gave the finger and said, “F–ck Donald Trump. Donald Trump go away, racist, sexist, anti-gay.” (Warning: There is graphic language in some of the videos.)

And here:

Protesters burned American flags at the anti-Trump protest in New York City.

They carried signs mocking the new President-elect.

CBS News said the New York City Trump Tower protest started with a rally, in which people discussed what actions to take in response to Trump’s victory, and then people took to the streets and began shutting down traffic. Watch:

There was also a march occurring in Seattle. There were reports of a multiple shooting near the anti-Trump protest, but Seattle police said the shooting does not appear to be related to the demonstration.

Pictures on social media showed swarms of protesters around Trump Tower in both cities. The protests, which were growing around 8 p.m. EST, underscored the challenges President-Elect Trump will face as he tries to unify a divided nation after the heated rhetoric of the 2016 presidential campaign, which left many non-white Americans feeling alienated. Trump prevailed in the electoral college on Tuesday by winning a trio of states with largely white populations: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. He ended up with 279 electoral votes. In his victory speech, he pledged to work for all Americans.

But that left some still dissatisfied, as they took to the streets to express the frustration that they couldn’t convert to a Hillary Clinton win at the ballot box. As has been seen with protests over police shootings, people used social media to organize them. Over 3,000 people indicated on Facebook that they planned to attend the New York protest, and more than 8,000 responded that they were going to join the one in Chicago.

One protester in Chicago expressed “hate” for Trump. One woman wrote on Facebook, “Once again, calling every single decent human with the right sense of mind to protest this racist bigot today at Trump tower!”

Some protesters carried signs equating Trump to Hitler.

Others expressed peaceful messages.

In Chicago, some people said they wanted to get rid of Trump Tower.

There were other protests throughout the day following Trump’s victory. Learn more about those protests here:

  1. Protesters are in Chicago, Trump Tower in NY and Seattle Washington, mad that President Donald
    Trump won the election. I think the Democrats are behind this again, just like they sent demonstrators
    to Trump’s conventions before he became President. These demonstrators are true DEPLORABLES,
    not Trump’s supporters like Hillary Clinton said. Get a life you Losers!

    • I think you are right. This is the level of depravity to which the liberal fascists will go. We got lucky this time and need to stay vigilant in the future. We need law and order.

    • They look like total dumb-asses! This is actually entertaining for a Trump voter. Cozy in my bed… laughing my ass off at these losers … thinking… ahhh the life… we gained our country back for this current presidency…finally some real change for this country. Somebody worth a damn. Killary gots to go. She is a sorry piece of shit and serves zero purpose to society.

    • I believe you are correct…they are mostly High school students (who cannot vote) or college kids who are way to young and immature…Be kind and gracious…please!

  2. all these rants will be silenced soon and some of these ppl will pooof YOU are NO MORE! and When the IGL IronGripLaw is forced upon America, just wait and see..

    • Agreed. Just a bunch of hoodlums walking around making an ass of them self. They’re little spoiled brats. Enabled ungrateful brats.

    • So true I didn’t see one grown adult in any of the video coverage. These poor little babies are in fear that america will get its back bone back and they may have to get a job and not have everything handed to them.

    • I agree. Must be nice to not have to worry about going to work or school all week. Dont worry I’ll still go to work for them and support them even more

      • Which is kind of funny since her husband didn’t. Bill “won” on a very slim margin. Which is why we have an electoral college, it actually works. What doesn’t work are thousands of protesting asssholes hitting the streets on Wednesday night. If they had jobs, they would be asleep.

    • the corrupt, racist bigot little barakie obama is leaving…but he’ll pardonother corrupt racist, sexist democrat bigots like the clintons.

  3. You dumb, evil supporters of Hillary, leave the USA and get the hell out of here. You
    don’t deserve to live in the USA. No new President has ever had such evil, stupid protesters
    like we are having now. You dumb, racist deplorable demonstrators don’t belong in the USA.
    Go to Russia, they will get even with you. You deserve that. Take the movie stars that voted
    for Hillary with you.

    • First of all….You go back to Europe!!! America is not YOUR HOME. IT BELONGS TO NATIVE AMERICANS!!! Always telling someone to go back where they came from….y’all brought diseases with you!!! So….after you!! Y’all stole people from their homelands, beat them, raped them….and then have the audacity to say GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM!!!!! FOH!!!!! OH AND FYI….WE ARE NOT OUR GREAT GRAND PARENTS….. Y’ALL WILL GET F’KD UP!!!!

      • America is our home, since we made it America and not just some random land with no rules for guidance. It’s people like you (people who lack intelligence and respect) who turn the inner cities into crap with loud music blasting all hours, illegally parked cars, trash all over the place, drug dealing, etc. You’re just ignorant and lacking respect for your fellow neighbors, and then you resort to violence and other crap when you don’t get your way. Simply pathetic…

    • He won because of American people tired of politicians false promises but the person like you victim of their Mumbo-Jumbo doesn’t understand this.

    • Your stupid for saying that because if that happens you all will be sorry im not going to say what will happen to you all you must be going to run that water everyday 24 hrs 7 days aweek slavery will never happen again people of minority will be treated with respect.so now get your stupid self off of here you idiot

      • Oh shut up, your empty threats are nothing. Protesters who walk in the middle of the street and stop traffic are doing more than just protesting and deserve to be arrested. If they resist they get the normal treatment that anyone would get.

  4. Cry babies! Enjoy your tantrum that nobody cares about. You will fade away into nothing and take it or you will break the law and be dealt with. All of you just cant stand not getting your way. Toddlers… For the last eight years there have been many who ave not been getting what they want but did they act like douche bags? No, they handled it like adults. Remember this, you will reap whatever you sow. There are better ways to deal with this than debasing yourselves.

  5. Start paying taxes and then you can say what the rest of America voted for!! Illinois will be banished from America!! Live your own lives and try to pay for it without any money!! Liberals will never get how things are paid for until they really have to actually pay for anything!! Buy a house!! Buy a car!! Buy anything that you may have to pay taxes for!! Have a retirement plan use Obama care when you have a real job!! You will understand why the Democrats lost!! No clue what real America is and how the rest of America that feeds your asses lives!! Sick of the idiotic things you ideological people that don’t own anything think!! Look past what your college professor told you and really try to make it in the real world.

  6. Oh for the love of God, go back and do your homework. “this what Democracy looks like” . right. Trump won the election, THAT is what Democracy looks like.
    The NYPD, having to carefully babysit these brats while they have their temper tantrums in the street. Kids, I got news for ya, no one’s gonna take away your right to have an abortion when you were too stupid to use birth control, no one’s gonna take away your right to sodomize each other. That’s all you really care about because frankly, mommy and daddy are paying your NYU fees. so give up fronting for causes that you aren’t affected by in the least.
    And, Hillary…that smirk today at her concession speech…hell, she had this up her sleeve the whole time. how much did she pay the “unstables” to foment this jazz?
    Will that goon ever go away, or will her devious machinations creep on behind the scenes forever?

  7. Not my president!
    People that support Trump are racist bigoted pigs who hate women.
    Maybe I’ll pull his balls off, and shove them down his f..cling throat.
    Watch out old white rich men.

    • He is the president of the USA, if you live here then he is your president. Your little make believe rules don’t change anything.
      Also, people who voted for Trump just want America to be nice again, in all areas including inner cities and not the crime ridden places that they are. So save your empty threats and go cry in a corner, cause you obviously do care lol.

  8. You have a sitting president that is bombing cities in seven different nations indiscriminately killing children, elderly and women destroying families across North Africa and the Middle East who has deported 2.5 million Latinos and Blacks, and you have demonstrations against a president elect for perceived fascism, misogyny and racism in his language. It doesn’t stretch the imagination too far to deduce that these demonstrations are being organized by the president elect’s political deep-pocketed enemies and not by humanistic concern. A man must be rightly judged by his actions and not by his words..

  9. Hitler, Himmler, racist bigot, fascism blha..blha……. .A president is just a job ruled and abide by the country constitutional law. let alone to be fascist , he is waiting up hill battle with congress and Sennet’s to accomplish what he promised to the nation. what the losers said make no sense at all.

  10. I voted for Clinton… The president of great Britain said it all ” OH MY GOD WHAT HAS AMERICAN DONE?” Now God’s wrath is upon us…GOD HELP AMERICA! Impeach TRUMP…He’s rascal.raisist.no morals.demeans woman. I’m thanking God for my freedom of speach that protects me with this post..for NOW we still have that…Trump will take away EVERYTHING…Clinton won the people’s vote…He won ONLY BY ELECTORAL VOTES. I’LL REPEAT HIS WORDS ” RIGGED ELECTION” PAIDED HIS WAY INTO OFFICE IS MY OPINION! I HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY THAT AS MY AMERICA PROTECTS ME UNDER THE CONSTITUTION! He also is for the rich NOT the poor! AMERICA TOOK STEPS BACK TO SLAVERY! I used to be republican now before the election I changed to democrat. I’M DISABLED. Obama care wasn’t any good but now WE’LL be without insurance with Trump.I don’t trust Trump. He said he’ll do one thing but I believe he’ll do the NOTHING he said cause he filed bankruptcy four times proving he can’t handle HIS own money so how can HE handle America’s?if he can’t get HIMSELF out of debt HOW can he get AMERICA out of debt? He wants to cut social security and Foodstamps from people who need it.I watched both him and hilliay..I didn’t vote for him…I voted according to to My heart. And the comments saying Hillary is NOT of good morals or Clinton isn’t a Godly woman has No right to judge her as Jesus is the ONLY judge of that same goes for Trump.but Trump has proven he has No morals… Hillary Clinton I hope runs in the next election.she CARES about the poor. Trump don’t.if he does WE’LL find out! IF WHAT I’VE HEARD IS TRUE SOCIAL SECURITY WON’T BE CUT OFF FOODSTAMPS OR MEDICAL WON’T BE CUT OFF BUT INCREASED AND WE’LL HAVE OUR DR’S BACK WE HAD8 YEARS AGO.if what I’ve HEARD about HIM we’ll ALL be CUT OFF EVERY THING! With no way to SURVIVE…I CAN’T WORK! IF he does what is right I’ll support HIM.but as a voter if he don’t I’ll vote against him.it’s not Trump married a woman twice now that’s from another country.and that’s fine I agree with people coming in AMERICA LEGALLY.but I don’t agree with separations of family’s.I agreed with some of what he said but don’t believe he means it and I agree with Hillary Clinton on some of her things.NOT Obama care nor raising insurance prices.I was the undecided voter..what swayed me towards Hillary was trumps lack of respect lack of morals towards women and I feel he’s a HOT headed man that will get mad and make rash decissions that will get us into world war three…I guess if it’s the end than we’ll know as what the Bible said what happens at the end times.the news media hurt Hillary chances as well in my opinion.I feel no ones perfect and do wrong. The emails were cleared by the FBI. it should of been droped.not brought out right before election.Trump should of never been so HARD on her in the conduct he displayed.the hatred showed to America’s people.if hes going to be a good president he needs to control his anger.show compassion to her for ALL she has done and were going to have to do the same with Trump.IF he does not do his job HE CAN BE fired from HIS job.but we HAVE to give HIM the same chance as we have to the past president.after all..THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR HIM.LIVE WITH YOUR VOTE. THAT’S MY OPINION.GOD HELP AMERICA AND US ALL!

    • thank god i live in the uk , how can a country be so dumb to vote in a broke old business man ? what the hell does he know about running a country he cant even run a business without it going broke . The rest of the world is just like sigh the usa is trully the dumbiest place in the world. and when ww3 happens im moving to switzerland because i wont fight along side Hitler. As that is what the rest of the world see’s your country as now a nazi party reborn again gg

      • You broken ass British. When did the last time you elected good prime minister ? Tony Blair the slaughtered of millions innocens or David Cameron the war mongered crazy guy ?

  13. Donald Trump is your president!!!!!!. We dont need any distractors .If don’t take the fact .you can go to Canada or Mexico which ever you want . have a happy journey:))

  14. These city folks have a totally skewed version of what America is. They think food actually comes from Whole Foods and would be shocked if they saw what kind of blood, sweat, and tears it takes to be a farmer. These fools have NO idea of the bullet we dodged, by not electing a woman that should at the very least be in prison. The liberal/Marxists have been openly running this country for the last 8 years and our country is more divided now than in the 60s. Everyone is equal in this country. We all have the same opportunity to better ourselves, but WE have to put effort in. Too many special interest groups think that they should have more rights than everyone else, that THEY and ONLY they should have their version of reality be the norm. Live your life. I will live mine. I don’t force my life choices on anyone. Don’t force yours on me, please.
    We live in the most amazing place on earth. If you don’t believe so, go elsewhere and find your happiness. Not one of these flag burning protesters EVER wore a military uniform to defend our country, or became a policeman or fireman to protect the public and put their lives between us and danger…whatever form it took.
    Grow up, children. Time for us to return to the constitution and true freedom; not false freedom where the government metes out what rights we should have and how we should have them.
    God bless the USA.

  15. I’m so ashamed of my own race, which is white. I see on TV that predominately white young
    people, mostly college students are protesting President Elect Donald Trump’s nomination
    for President. These Democrats should be ashamed of themselves. White Republican people
    never protested Obama’s election, because Republicans have more class and manners than
    Democrats do. When you grow up, you will remember this and be so embarrassed of your stupidity
    when you were young. You young naïve, stupid Democrats will see that President Donald Trump
    will be the best President we ever had. He will bring you good jobs, good affordable healthcare,
    a safe country and much more. Thank God, Donald Trump won this election so our country could
    be saved. Thank God, Hillary Clinton lost, otherwise this country would be in big trouble with her
    bad judgment, bad instincts and arrogants for the working people. Trump saved our country from
    Democrat corruption.

  16. The riots against the elected President of the United States of America, are because all these people so criminal from the lowworld that want to be sustain, with stolen money and drugs, they want it their candidate to win the elections, so for she to continue keeping all those criminals, to stay distribute with drugs, to be use and sell, any body can see that all those people are ugly persons from other countries, they have to go to be so ugly to their countries, those are people without education, those are the same bunch of, who were Communists in their countries, and now those are angry, because they lost, plus those used to had, much power with that tripod that those communist put it, into the skin body, an electronic element, with inhuman power, that those communist use to treat bad to people, with the power of a drug call cocaine , and another power, those anti-capitalist criminal Communists making riots, are very angry because those lost the power of the tripod , and don’t want to lose the power of the tripod, those bunch of people are Communists, who do not like to make any cain of work, those communist do not like rich people America, those have to go to their communist countries, those riot bunch of are murderers, those are fighting the elected President, those riots are not the mistakes or errors from the new elected President, those are the mistakes of the present President, he is the one who have to break up the riots, if are by thousands the police cannot, to handle, then should called the military.
