Demonstrators have marched in cities across the United States to protest against Republican Donald Trump's surprise presidential election win, blasting his campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.
Dozens have been arrested at the protests, which took place in cities which heavily favoured Ms Clinton over Mr Trump, whose support largely came from small towns and rural areas.
In New York, thousands filled streets in midtown Manhattan as they made their way to Trump Tower, Mr Trump's gilded home on Fifth Avenue. They shouted slogans such as "hey ho, hey ho, Donald Trump has got to go" and "p***y grabs back!"
Hundreds of others gathered at a Manhattan park and shouted "Not my President."

In Los Angeles, protesters sat on the 110 and 101 highway interchange, blocking traffic on one of the city's main arteries as police in riot gear tried to clear them. Some 13 protesters were arrested, a local CBS affiliate reported.
The Los Angeles Times reported a massive effigy of the President-elect was burned outside City Hall.

An earlier rally and march in Los Angeles drew more than 5,000 people, many of them high school and college students, local media reported.
A demonstration of more than 6000 people blocked traffic in Oakland, California, police said. Protesters threw objects at police in riot gear, burned rubbish in the middle of an intersection, set off fireworks and smashed store front windows.
Police responded by throwing chemical irritants at the protesters, according to a Reuters witness.
Two officers were injured in Oakland and two police squad cars were damaged, Johnna Watson, spokeswoman for the Oakland Police Department told CNN.
In downtown Chicago, an estimated 1800 people gathered outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower, chanting phrases like "No Trump! No KKK! No racist USA."
Chicago police closed roads in the area, impeding the demonstrators' path. There were no immediate reports of arrests or violence there.
"I'm just really terrified about what is happening in this country," said 22-year-old Adriana Rizzo in Chicago, who was holding a sign that read: "Enjoy your rights while you can."
In Seattle, police responded to a shooting with multiple victims near the scene of anti-Trump protests. Police said it was unrelated to the demonstrations.
Hundreds also gathered in Philadelphia, Boston and Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday evening. In Austin, the Texas capital, about 400 people marched through the streets, police said.
Protests against Mr Trump have even spread across the border to the north, with Canadians in Vancouver demonstrating outside buildings bearing the property magnate's name.
Ms Clinton won the popular vote, securing at least 230,000 more votes than Mr Trump but losing the Electoral College, which ultimately chooses the President.
Protesters railed against Mr Trump's campaign pledge to build a wall along the border with Mexico to keep immigrants from entering the US illegally.
Mr Trump is currently in Washington to meet with President Barack Obama and discuss the transition process.
