There are reports of several riots sparking up following the announcement that Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States.

Video of American flags burning and Mexican flags being waved can be seen in multiple videos from the protests.

The LA Times reports, that shortly after Trump delivered a victory speech in New York, an estimated 2,000 people rallied at UCLA when two separate demonstrations merged into one. There were no arrests.

In Oakland, Calif. broke windows on five businesses and vandalized another, said Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson. One citation was issued but no one was arrested, she said.

In Oregon, it's reported hundreds of protesters gathered in Eugene and Portland to demonstrate following the announcement of election results.

A less dramatic action is being reported at Yale University, where a professor has made an exam optional for students upset over the election.



Fox News reports a Yale economics professor has written the students saying: “I am getting many heartfelt notes from students who are in shock over the election returns” and “fear, rightly or wrongly for their families” and are “requesting that the exam be postponed.”
