Anger and disappointment has spilled onto the streets of various US cities, with thousands of Americans rallying against Donald Trump’s surprising election victory.

Trump, a 70-year-old business tycoon that has made disparaging remarks about women, African-Americans, Latinos, Muslims, LGBTQ people and the disabled, won the presidency after securing 279 electoral votes, nine more than the 270 needed to win.

So how did he do it?
