Lady Gaga protests outside Trump Tower

Lady Gaga was photographed protesting outside the Trump Tower in New York City late last night.

She stood on a sanitation truck, holding a sign reading 'Love Trumps Hate' with the Trump Tower in the background. 

Gaga was also photographed in tears earlier that evening as she sat backstage at Clinton's election night party.

As it become clear that Trump was in the lead, Gaga tweeted "In a room full of hope, we will be heard. Stand up for kindness, equality, and love. Nothing will stop us. Say a prayer America."

Donald Trump was announced as President shortly before 7.30am GMT.
