Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the president of the United States come January 20. But many Twitter users—especially those whom Trump targeted during his campaign, including Muslims, immigrants, women, people of color—are not excited about his win last night (November 8).
They are clapping back with the trending hashtags #NotMyPresident and #ImStillWithHer, simultaneously decrying Trump’s win and showing support for his opponent, Hillary Clinton. As usual, some trolls have crept in, but the hashtags primarily serve as a unifying platform for those who feel lost in the wake of the election. Here are some must-see tweets:
