It was announced early Wednesday (Nov. 9) that Donald Trump will be heading to the oval office as America's 45th president, and the news left a large number of Americans furious and "Sick. Disgusted. Heartbroken." In response, multiple anti-Trump protests were staged later that day across the United States.
Joining in on the protests were some of hip-hop's biggest names, including Meek Mill, T.I, and Questlove, who channeled their anger into action and marched with protesters Wednesday night.
"'she got more votes' 'we reject the president elect' The people ain't goin for it....I'm right here wit em!!!! #USorELSE," T.I captioned a video posted to his Instagram, where he stands in the midst of people chanting outside the Trump Towers in Manhattan. Questlove also joined the Manhattan anti-Trump march, as protesters made their way to Times Square.
The people have spoken.... They turning America on its head.

Elsewhere in Manhattan, Meek Mill supported the angry crowd from the sidelines as he encouraged the protesters, asking "F--k who?" in a call-and-response fashion.

ScHoolboy Q also had a message for Donald Trump as well. While the TDE rapper didn't protest along Manhattan streets, Q delivered his message to an Australian crowd, and enlisted YG's "FDT" song to share his feelings. "I don't believe your vote count anymore", he told the crowd. "I don't believe that, I don't believe that."

Earlier on Weds., T.I posted a photo of Barack and Michelle Obama apologizing for the results of the election. "If I could've done more I would've," he wrote. "But Unfortunately, it seems like we've been brought back to a worse place than we were in before. In your honor we'll remain honorable,respectable & continue to strive for greatness. I'll never let our dream die!!! WE CAN STILL DO IT!!!!"
