President-elect Donald Trump seems to have changed his opinion overnight on protests again him that have spread nationwide.

On Thursday night, the President-elect said that “professional protesters” who were “incited by the media” were ruining his “open and successful” electoral victory.

“Unfair” wrote Trump.

By Friday morning, he had changed his tone.

“Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country,” he wrote, presumably referring to the same people.

“We will all come together and be proud!”

After Trump’s electoral victory Tuesday night, protests against him have occurred in cities across the country, and online, via the hashtag #NotMyPresident.
