    Violent rallies have taken place in New York, Chicago, Austin, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Dallas to express their anger against the billionaire businessman which have continued long into the early hours of Thursday morning.

    Hordes of demonstrators rushed to Trump Tower in Manhattan screaming "not my President", "New York hates Trump", "we reject the President-elect" and "f*** the wall".

    People got a chance to vote. The people decided Trump should be president. Get over it.

    Not saying I like the guy, but that's how democracy works, you vote, and you get a decision.

    People are using their democratic right to protest and it gets hysterically labelled as civil war? The degenerate right really are embracing post-truth politics.

    Democracy is ****.
    Every nation has a way of doing things, I don't think many are particularly effective.

    Trump wins based on a state based representation, Clinton wins on popular vote. Either way, more than 50% of the population is disappointed.

    As are the regressive left. Ironic that people who label themselves progressives and democratic are unable to accept a democratic decision.

    Violent protests didn't happen due to Obama being elected though.

    These riots are like how Bernie and Hillay fans caused violence at Mr Trump's rallies.

    Okay, I'll amend: There were no mass riots when Obama was elected, apart from one at a university where a few hundred got a bit rowdy.

    And there haven't been any "mass riots" for Trump either. What's your point?

    Yeah I agree, I supported Hillary but now Trump's won the Americans are just going to have to move forward and try and make the best of what they have. Protesting will just further divide the country; they'll end up tearing each other apart!

    Because there is no middle ground between democracy and an insane dictatorship. If you disagree with democracy, you are a communist! A fascist! An enemy of the people!
    Yup. Just look at all the closet-fascists protesting a democratic vote.

    They're just scared of what Trump will do. But I agree, violence is not the answer! They need to accept the result;they will divide their country further with hatred and then what will happen?
