Supporters of incumbent US President Donald Trump have launched protests in several US states after leading media outlets published forecasts on Saturday that Democrat Joseph Biden won the election.
In Atlanta, Georgia, about a thousand supporters of the American leader gathered outside the building where the local legislature sits. They, according to the Associated Press (AP), chant: "This is not the end!" They accuse the American media of falsification.
In Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday, at least 1,000 Trump supporters came to the center where ballots are processed. The protesters urged not to consider the presidential elections in the country over. They expressed confidence in the victory of the Republicans.
In Lansing, Michigan, two groups of protesters met: supporters of Trump and members of the Black Lives Matters movement. According to the AP, there was a "tough confrontation" during which people pushed each other and shouted. Later the tension subsided.
According to USA Today, rallies in support of Trump are taking place in Albany (New York) and Columbia (South Carolina). No information has yet been received about cases of riots during demonstrations in the country.
Many US cities are celebrating Biden's victory. These include Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), Chicago (Illinois), and New York (New York).
