Trump: ‘Love that protesters have passion for our great country’

(KRON) — After reacting to nationwide protests against his presidency on Twitter Thursday night, Donald Trump returned to the social media platform early Friday to soften his position.

This statement came the morning after a previous tweet in which he said that protestors were treating him unfairly.

Earlier Thursday Trump met with President Obama at the White House to discuss the transition.

On Thursday night, hundreds of protesters gathered in Richmond for a second night of demonstrations against Trump’s election.
