Safety pins have become a symbol of solidarity with refugees and other migrants since the historic Brexit vote to leave the European Union in June.

Trump rode to victory with a "Make America Great Again" message that included a vow to build a wall along the border with Mexico — and make Mexicans pay for it — and deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

Both votes — Brexit and the U.S. election — were marked by emotional campaigns that saw tensions and divisions running high among warring sides. In the U.K., anger about immigration helped propel the "leave" campaign to victory amid a tide of nativism.
