Demonstrators marched in cities across the United States on Wednesday to protest Republican Donald Trump's surprise presidential election win, blasting his controversial campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and other groups.

A demonstration of about 6,000 people blocked traffic in Oakland, California, police said.

Protesters threw objects at police in riot gear, burned trash 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.

In Seattle large crowds of protesters marched in the Capitol Hill area of the city against Trump's unexpected election victory.
