As is typical of any election, anger has risen across the country after Republican nominee Donald Trump won the election against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. However, Trump's victory has sparked anger to a degree that it has triggered a number of protests to spring up around the United States, and according to reports, these protests are growing.
According to ABC13, thousands have gathered in Chicago IL. outside of Trump Tower holding anti-Trump signs and chanting "not my president." Reports say that the protests are largely peaceful, however the protest has taken up all six lanes of North Michigan avenue.
According to one Twitter user, protestors were attempting to break down barriers in front of Trump Tower.
