Law enforcement officials are using tear gas and rubber bullets to try to disperse crowds and send protesters home.

  • Protesters in New York City made their way to Trump Tower in Manhattan where at least seven people were arrested, according to The New York Times.
  • Minneapolis police said they had been "overwhelmed" as they respond to hundreds of 911 calls about gunfire, property damage and burglaries, per the Post.
