The Republican will visit the White House today as protesters in major cities across the US vent their fury over the billionaire’s victory
Violent demonstrations are taking place in major cities across the US in protests over Donald Trump’s shock US election win.
Protesters have taken to the street in major cities including New York, Los Angeles and Washington.
There have been violent clashes with police with some protesters even hanging effigies of Trump.
Trump pulled off his victory after channelling Brexit style forces to defeat establishment candidate Hillary Clinton.
Clinton went into election day with a lead in the polls, but confidence in her becoming America’s first female President rapidly disappeared as results started coming in.
In a victory speech Trump dropped the vitriol of his campaign and vowed to “bind the wounds of division”, but angry crowds burned flags and chanted “not our President”.
He will visit President Obama today at the White House as he enjoys congratulations from world leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin – by telegram – and British Prime Minister Theresa May.
