Thousands have already began to show resistance to Trump's inauguration as president.

Many held signs calling his presidency 'illegitimate,' blocking buses and pushing back on police.

In New York, celebrities spoke out against Trump, including Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, Cher, Mark Ruffalo, and Michael Moore.
