Protests against Donald Trump spread across the country on Wednesday, a day after the billionaire businessman won the presidential election.

ABC News reported protests in at least 14 cities late Wednesday, including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, and Pittsburgh.

Protests were also held in Portland, Oregon; Richmond, Virginia; St. Paul, Minnesota; and Washington, D.C.. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported protests in that Louisiana city as well.

WABC-TV reported that 65 people were arrested during the New York protest, most of them in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower. Sources told WABC that at least 10,000 people took part in NYC protests.

USA Today said an estimated 2,000 protesters demonstrated in Seattle chanting "Not my president" and "No racist USA." Police reported a shooting near where demonstrators were gathered.

As many as 7,000 protesters took to the streets in Oakland and some set fires, while a police car was vandalized and one officer was injured, reported KGO-TV. A Trump piñata was burned and flash bangs were going off in the streets. There were also reports of looting and buildings burning.

Two separate anti-Trump protests in Washington, D.C., ended up at the newly opened Trump International Hotel with chants of "Impeach Donald Trump," said USA Today. Thousands of other protesters in downtown Boston chanted "Trump's a racist" and carried signs that read "Impeach Trump" and "Abolish Electoral College."

The Chicago Tribune reported that protesters at one point filled all six lanes of heavily-traveled North Michigan Avenue while some demonstrated in front of Trump Tower there.

Thousand protested in downtown Los Angeles with about 300 people bringing traffic to a stop on the U.S. Route 101 Freeway, reported KTLA-TV. Traffic was backed up for miles.

In New Orleans, protesters marched from St. Charles Avenue to Canal Street and then into the French Quarter, said the Times-Picayune. Several downtown buildings were sprayed with anti-Trump graffiti while windows at the Chase bank on St. Charles Avenue were shattered.
