In Washington, more than 1,000 demonstrators gathered outside the White House, according to Fox News. The crowd, who marched and climbed into trees, were protesting the future Trump administration and his immigration policies.

Trump, who earned 276 electoral votes, urged Americans to come together and unify the country.

“To those who have chosen not to support me in the past — of which there were a few people — I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country,” he said during his first speech as president-elect.
