Concerns have been raised about possible changes that could occur during a Trump administration in the United States.

She attributed his victory to higher voter turn out from rural areas where voter apathy had risen and lower voter turn out from the African-American community and the youth.

Anti-Trump supporters have taken to the streets in protest against the results.
