President-elect Trump reacts to protests on Twitter
WASHINGTON - President-elect Donald Trump seems to be having a change of heart about those protesting the election results.
Trump had denounced the protesters in a tweet late Thursday. He wrote that "professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!"
But this morning, he tweeted: "Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!"
Thousands have been gathering in cities across the United States to protest Trump's victory in Tuesday's election.
In Portland, Oregon, the protests last night turned violent, with store windows being smashed, a dumpster lit on fire and at least 26 people under arrest.
