Raw video: Downtown Portland protest following Trump win (Warning: Language)

SEATTLE – Protesters unhappy with the election of Donald Trump took to the streets of Seattle's Capitol Hill and downtown Portland to show their displeasure early Wednesday morning.

The Seattle protest began late Tuesday night. Some chose to lay down in the street at E. Broadway and E. Pike Street.

A sanitation truck had to dump its load after some of the trash caught fire.

Early Wednesday morning, the protesters cleared out.

The Portland protest began at around midnight. More than 100 protesters blocked traffic in the area of West Burnside Street and Southwest 6th Avenue. They continued to march southbound on 6th Avenue to Portland State University.

“We are making noise. We are telling Donald Trump that we don’t like that he’s here. I feel like we’re doomed. This can’t be real,” one activist said.

TriMet tweeted MAX green and yellow lines were disrupted due to the protest.

A dumpster was put in the middle of the road, blocking a MAX train. 

The crowd multiple times chanted "Who's streets? Our streets!"

At other moments the group chanted "That's not my president!"
