Donald Trump becomes 45th president of America: More than 95 arrested over protests

More than 95 people have been arrested for the violent protests against President Donald Trump on his inauguration day. Police deployed pepper spray in a chaotic confrontation close to where Mr Trump took the Oath of Office.

Spirited demonstrations unfolded peacefully at various security checkpoints near the Capitol as police helped ticket-holders get through to the inaugural ceremony. Signs read, “Resist Trump Climate Justice Now,” “Let Freedom Ring,” “Free Palestine.”

But at one point, police gave chase to a group of about 100 protesters who smashed the windows of downtown businesses including a Starbucks, Bank of America and McDonald’s as they denounced capitalism and Trump. Police in riot gear used pepper spray from large canisters and eventually cordoned off the protesters.
