A masked protester sets fire to a newspaper stand as people march through the streets to voice their anger after Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump won the election in Portland, Oregon on Nov. 10, 2016.

The protest boiled over into what police described as a "riot" overnight Thursday after some demonstrators armed with bats smashed stores and cars, and others lit fires.
