The Brexit-inspired hashtag for a movement calling for California's secession from the US is trending on Twitter Wednesday, the day after Donald Trump was elected in big national election victory for Republicans.

Another hashtag, #WestCoastSecession, includes other Western blue states like Oregon, Washington and Nevada.
