Since Donald Trump was elected President on Tuesday, there have been protests and declarations of outrage across the States.

One New York resident decided to vent her frustrations with a hike. Little did she expect that she would find Hillary Clinton doing the exact same.

After suffering a shocking defeat to Trump, Margot Gerster was surprised to meet Hillary and husband Bill in the woods.

Posting a picture on Facebook, Margot writes: “I’ve been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday’s election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking. So I decided to take them to one of favourite places in Chappaqua. We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was. I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her. She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I’m not one for signs but I think ill definitely take this one. So proud.”
