Donald Trump’s US presidential election win sparks riots by Hillary Clinton fans as fighting erupts outside the White House
Pro-Clinton supporters clashed with Trump fans in major cities within minutes of the billionaire being named president.
VIOLENCE erupted across America this morning after Donald Trump’s shock election win – including outside the White House.
Pictures and footage emerged of furious protesters burning flags, rioters setting fire to rubbish and angrily confronting Trump supporters after it emerged the controversial Republican president-elect will soon hold the most powerful position in the world.
The brash billionaire sent shockwaves around the world after delivering his own “Brexit for America” in a historic victory over Hillary Clinton to become the 45th US President.
In his first address as President-elect after a bitter campaign, Trump struck a unifying tone in front of crowds cheering “USA, USA”.
He said it was “time for America to bind the wounds of division”.
But Donald Trump’s presidential victory set off protests by hundreds of people on California college campuses and in Oregon.
Police said at least 500 people swarmed on streets in and around UCLA, some shouting ‘f**k Trump’ and others chanting “Not my president!”
There were no immediate arrests.
Smaller demonstrators were held at University of California campuses and neighbourhoods in Berkeley, Irvine and Davis and at San Jose State.
In Oakland, more than 100 protesters took to downtown streets. KNTV-TV reported that protesters burned Trump in effigy, smashed windows of the Oakland Tribune newsroom and set tires and trash on fire.
The California Highway Patrol says a woman was struck by a car during the protest and severely injured.
In Oregon, dozens of people blocked traffic in downtown Portland and forced a delay for trains on two light rail lines.
