WATCH | The first days of 'Trump's America' have elicited strong emotions from proponents and opponents

Just days after Trump's presidential win, people on both sides of the aisle are expressing intense emotions.

On the one hand, anti-Trump protesters have taken to the streets to protest a man they view as being unfit for the presidency. On the other hand, anecdotes are pouring in on social media detailing pro-Trump Americans committing hate crimes in the name of the president-elect. 

Overnight Protests

Many major cities in America had protesters take to their streets including New York City, Seattle, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Boston, and more. 

Protesters have held up signs that tread "not my president" and have chanted slogans like "hey hey ho ho Donald Trump has got to go." 

Protests have stopped traffic in NYC and shootings occurred during protests in Seattle. 

Stress from the LGBT Community

According to the Trevor Project -- a crisis hotline catering to young LBGTQ people, there has been an uptick in calls since Trump was elected president.

Trump's election has caused many LGBTQ youth to wonder what their place in an America run by Donald Trump and Mike Pence. 

Hate in Schools

Earlier this week, middle schoolers in Michigan were seen chanting "Build the wall" in a school cafeteria. 

Students in Pennsylvania held up a Trump sign while walking around school halls as other students yelled out "white power." 

Many similar anecdotes have been reported in news sources or via social media.
