ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). --STORY CONTAINS PROFANE LANGUAGE -- STORY: Holding signs that say "choose love" protesters gather outside Trump Tower in New York chanting in anger and sometimes using obscene language in protest as Republican Donald Trump becomes the President-elect of the United States. A figure of a man appeared in a window of the building. Trump, who had never before run for public office, won on a broad wave of support both from the Republican U.S. heartland and by flipping previously Democratic states, including Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio, helping his party protect majorities in both chambers of Congress. The victory stunned residents of major cities up and down the East and West coasts, many of whom had trusted opinion polls that had long predicted a Clinton victory but were proven profoundly wrong by Tuesday's results. Trump's campaign promises have included building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal crossings and to deport the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Trump dropped his angry speaking style to take a conciliatory tone when he declared victory early Wednesday morning, saying, "I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans."
