Protests continue across the United States against President-elect Donald Trump. Despite calls from political leaders on all sides to come together, thousands of demonstrators have poured onto the streets in many major US cities and beyond.

From New York City to Miami, from Atlanta to Chicago and all corners of the United States.

For a fourth straight day, thousands of protesters took to the streets in many U.S. cities to protest the incoming Donald Trump presidency. Chants of "Not my President" were shouted - American flags were burned- by many who fear policy changes by the president-elect.

"I'm here to protest against racism and bigotry. Donald Trump ran the campaign based on hate, based on racism and that's what we are against," said Jorge Bautista Larrosa, anti-Trump protester.

And it's not just in the states that voted against Trump. This smart phone video shows protesters shutting down a major road in Iowa - a state that went heavily for Trump. There have been a few rallies in support of the President-elect, but they have been dwarfed by anti-Trump forces.

More protests are planned in the coming days, weeks, and months including a "Million Woman March" in downtown Washington D.C. on Trump's inauguration in January.

"I'm here because I'm in pain. I just want to express myself that, I just can't believe that this happened. I mean it did happen, and I've heard a number of the commentaries that explain why, but never the less it's very painful," one protester Janice Test said.
