Thousands of people in at least 25 US cities took to the streets to protest Donald Trump the night after his election to the presidency – a swift and robust outcry against the man more than two months before he even takes office.

The protests are notable for their timing and breadth, but presidents and presidents-elect have long been targets of demonstrations. Here are images from a few in the past 50 years:
