Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Anti-Trump protests: Crowds of people in cities across the country gathered to protest the election of Donald Trump as president. Holding signs that read, "Not my president," people in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia march in what police said were mainly peaceful demonstrations. About 1,000 people gathered outside of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York where police had installed barricades earlier in the day. In Los Angeles, L.A. Clippers coach Doc Rivers called for people to be calm. "We're all going to be OK everyone," he said Wednesday night before the Clippers hosted Portland. "Donald Trump is going to be president and that's something I never thought I'd have to say. I believe overall America works." Rivers had a suggestion for those upset at the outcome of the election. "Don't be mad," Rivers said. "Go do something about it if you want change. Run for office or vote."

2. Statement gone: A statement from then-candidate Donald Trump about banning the immigration of any Muslim into the United States has been taken off his website. Last December Trump called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." Trump seemed to walk back the broad statement while campaigning, saying he would not favor targeting Muslims specifically, but would favor a ban on immigration from countries with connections to terrorism.

3. Trump, Obama to meet: President Obama is scheduled to meet with Donald Trump Thursday at the White House. The two are expected to talk about the transition as Trump works to put together a Cabinet and begin appointing people to senior roles in various government agencies. It could be an uncomfortable meeting between the men as Trump spent years questioning where President Obama was born, and Obama repeated from the White House and on the campaign trail that Trump is unfit for the office. First lady Michelle Obama will meet privately in the White House residence with Trump's wife, Melania Trump. It is the first time Melania Trump has ever been to the White House.

4. Five shot in Seattle: Five people were shot Wednesday night in downtown Seattle. According to police, a man shot into a crowd of people in the parking lot of a convenience store. Four men and one woman were shot. Two of the men are in critical condition, law enforcement authorities said. The search continues for the suspect who fled on foot.

5. Pitt cleared: Actor Brad Pitt has been cleared of charges he was abusive toward his son on a private flight in September. Authorities in California said there was no finding of abuse. Pitt and his wife, actress Angelina Jolie, are in the process of divorcing.
