Topless Trump protesters vs the Naked Cowboy

As the US goes to the polls, topless protesters have faced off against the Naked Cowboy in a battle for the public's hearts, minds and eyes.

New York's famous Naked Cowboy has been doing his best to stir up support for Mr Trump.

Robert Burch has been performing as the Naked Cowboy for more than 20 years. He's now stationed outside the Trump Tower in an effort to "make America great again".

He's been singing songs of support for Mr Trump, with the candidate's name emblazoned on his tight underwear.

"If you really wanna make America great again, vote for the man whose name is on my rear end," he sings.

But he's not the only one undressing for a cause. Two women tore off their tops and shouted anti-Trump slogans outside the New York City school where Mr Trump was due to vote.

The women, from the feminist activist group Femen, were arrested and given summonses for electioneering, a violation of rules outlawing political activity at polls.

The women had the phrases "Hate out of polls" and "Trump, grab your balls" written on their bodies, images posted on social media showed.

The latter phrase was a clear reference to lewd comments made by Mr Trump in 2005 and released to the public in early October.

Security officials escorted the two women from the polling site - a Manhattan high school gym - and the disruption was over within minutes.

Mr Trump, who had not yet arrived to cast his ballot, missed the protest.
