ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Anti-Trump protests are held in Chicago and across the country just hours after Donald Trump became President-elect of the United States. Anti-Trump rallies were also planned in New York, Boston, and other cities around the country, according to social media postings. A Facebook page for a protest scheduled for Manhattan's Union Square Park showed more than 8,000 people planned to attend. The demonstrations followed a night of protests around the Bay Area and elsewhere in the country in response to Trump's stunning political upset. Demonstrators late on Tuesday smashed storefront windows and set garbage and tires ablaze in downtown Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco. A few miles away, students at the University of California at Berkeley students protested on campus.
