Billionaire businessman Donald Trump was today declared the next President of the United States after winning the 2016 election.
Trump opened up a lead against opponent Hillary Clinton in the early hours of the morning before making a victory speech when the news was finally confirmed.
As riots break out across the USA, Americans against Trump’s presidency have been taking to social media to voice their despair, disbelief and terror at the news – with some even comparing the outcome to 9/11.
And many are immediately distancing themselves from the decision by using the hashtag #HesNotMyPresident. Below are some tweets some Americans tweeted in defiance of Donald Trump’s election victory.
I went to bed not knowing the results and woke up in a country where I'll never sleep well again. #HesNotMyPresident
