Social media captures Trump protesters in all their glory

Images of broken storefront windows and fires emerge as protesters express their feelings about President Donald Trump. More than 200 arrested.

The inauguration of President Donald Trump prompted protesters to take to the streets of Washington, DC, as he was sworn in during a Washington ceremony on Friday. Social media was there to record the welcome the new president got.

Here's some of the action from those on the scene:

CBS News earlier reported police in riot gear with pepper spray chased down a group of about 100 protesters who smashed windows at downtown businesses. The Metropolitan Police Department said protesters armed with crowbars and hammers damaged vehicles and property and set small fires.

More than 200 people were arrested, police said. Six officers received minor injuries, including three who were hit in the head with flying objects.
