For two nights in a row, demonstrators against Trump have flooded the streets of major cities across the U.S. The protests have been largely peaceful, though there have been several arrests and reports of vandalism.

Protesters marched outside of Trump's towers in New York City and Chicago — at least five people were arrested in Chicago on Wednesday night, and at least 15 were arrested in New York. Several fires were set in the streets of Oakland, and protesters in Los Angeles torched an effigy of Trump.

And DNAInfo Chicago posted video of a group of people attacking a man while yelling, "Don't vote Trump!"

Chicago Police said the assault was tied to a traffic incident. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital. No suspects have been taken into custody yet.

There have been several reports of harassment targeting minorities after the election, including racist graffiti and an assault on a Muslim student in California. Another Muslim student in Louisiana initially claimed she was assaulted by Trump supporters but later admitted she made the story up.
