NEW YORK – The NYPD said they've arrested more than 60 people connected to Wednesday night's protests against president-elect Donald Trump.

As of early Thursday, at least 65 demonstrators were arrested and most of them were charged with disorderly conduct, police said.

Hundreds of protesters began their march in Union Square around 6 p.m. and then grew to the thousands when they merged with another group hours later at Columbus Circle.

Authorities estimate as many as 5,000 people protested the real estate mogul's victory outside Trump Tower.

Among them included pop star Lady Gaga, a staunch Clinton supporter.

Police started to apprehend demonstrators in front of a Trump  Hotel after warning them about illegally standing in the middle of the street.

The NYC protest was just one of the many going on in major cities throughout the country, including Boston, Los Angeles and Dallas.

Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States in a stunning victory against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Clinton conceded in a phone call to Trump early Wednesday morning.
