Anti-Donald Trump rallies entered the fourth day on Saturday as demonstrators across the country kept disavowing the president-elect.
Since Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in the US presidential election on Tuesday, protests had emerged in major cities across the country, as thousands of people poured onto the streets to rail against the ascension of a man who had, at various points, belittled women, immigrants and numerous other groups.
Here’s a look at the violence that has unravelled in America post the elections.
