Protests against Donald Trump, or anti-Trump protests, have occurred throughout the United States during Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and in the wake of his victory in the U.S. presidential election.

During his presidential campaign, activists occasionally organized demonstrations inside Trump's rallies, sometimes with calls to shut the rallies down; fueled by some of Trump's language, protesters began to attend his rallies displaying signs and disrupting proceedings. Following Trump's election to the presidency, students and activists organized larger protests in several major cities across the United States, including New York, Boston, Chicago, Portland, and Oakland. Tens of thousands of protesters participated, with many chanting "Not my president!" to express their opposition to Trump's victory.

Debate began regarding the United States' electoral college system after the election because Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton lost the election while winning the popular vote. Detractors of the system say that popular votes represent the nation as a whole, whilst supporters of the electoral college say that the system prevents candidates from only focusing on large metropolitan areas for votes.
