It hasn’t even been 24 hours since Donald Trump was announced as the president-elect and people on Twitter are not having it. It isn’t because they just don’t want a Trump presidency. It’s because of the examples of hate crimes and rights-stripping that have already started to happen.
People are using #NotMyPresident to show the world just what a Donald Trump presidency will look like.

People are tweeting about emboldened racist actions and remarks being taken against people of color.
But the hashtag is also showing the world that some places in America are still loving and compassionate to all Americans.

I've cried more than I did when I was diagnosed with cancer. This is insane. This is shameful. This is NOT my America. #notmypresident

Major cities across the country — from Los Angeles to New York — are already experiencing protests.
People from other countries are showing support for Americans who feel victimized by the results.
To all women, LGBT community, people of colour, we can fight this. We are all with you. We will stand up for you. #notmypresident

Take a deep breath, America. This is a country of the people by the people. We just need to make sure we make our voices heard in a calm and orderly way.
