Americans don safety pins in solidarity with minorities after election

In the wave of reactions to Donald Trump's election as the 45th president of the U.S., safety pins have taken on a new meaning in the country.

Some Americans are wearing safety pins as a symbol of solidarity with victims of racism, homophobia and religious discrimination. People have spoken out on Twitter to say that their safety pins show that they are an ally to marginalized groups.

"My #SafetyPin shows I will protect those who feel in danger bc of gender, sexuality, race, disability, religion, etc. You are safe with me," actor Bex Taylor-Klaus tweeted.
