New Yorkers are reacting to Donald Trump's victory with protests today.
The majority of votes in Tuesday's national election have been counted and the Republican received 279 votes in the electoral college, compared to the 228 that went to his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Republicans held on to the majority of seats in the House and the Senate, as well; meaning Trump is likely to face little opposition on Capitol Hill has he begins to govern.
Resistance has begun, however, in the streets of New York and in other urban areas nationally where the prospect of Trump in power has been greeted with fear and outrage. Rallies are planned in Manhattan today outside Trump Tower and at Union Square. Follow The Indypendent's Twitter feed for live coverage.
