Thousands Protest Across U.S. After Shock Trump Win

Fear, sadness, discontent, anger. Protesters opposed to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump made their feelings heard Wednesday by marching in cities across the nation. Many held up signs and chanted "Not My President" and "Love Trumps Hate"—but others signaled hope, saying "Good Will Prevail."  Here are some scenes on the ground.
