Trump Slams, Then Praises, Protests Against Him In Two Contradictory Tweets
The president-elect initially criticized "professional protesters incited by the media", before saying he "loved the fact small groups of protesters" were showing "passion" just hours later.
Donald Trump slammed, then praised, the actions of protesters demonstrating against his election victory in two contradictory tweets sent Thursday evening and early Friday morning.
In Thursday evening's tweet, he accused protesters of being "professional" and incited by the media" and slammed their actions as "very unfair."
It was the first tweet Trump — a prolific user of the platform — had sent since meeting President Obama at the White House on Thursday.
