US election 2016 result: 'He's not my president'
"It is time for us to come together as one united people," said the 45th US president-in-waiting, Donald Trump, after defeating Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
"I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans," he promised, as he addressed supporters at his victory rally in New York.
But even before he spoke, some on social media were making it clear that as far as they were concerned he would never speak for them. Many expressing that view did so with the hashtag"#HesNotMyPresident" - which was used more than 180,000 times within a few hours.
Others tried their best to strike a conciliatory tone and calm the situation. Sort of.
While other tweeters dismissed the use of #HesNotMyPresident as an excuse to throw a "tantrum" in the face of one of the most seismic upsets in American electoral history.
And some Clinton supporters, like this actress, tweeted that as much as they didn't like the result they had to accept it.
Meanwhile, jubilant Trump supporters are getting used to the sound of their successful candidate's future title, #PresidentTrump.
