Trump Complains About 'Unfair' Anti-Trump Protests (Video)

President-elect Donald Trump took to his Twitter page Nov. 10 to complain about demonstrators who marched against him for the second day (video below).

Trump tweeted: "Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!"

The tweet just egged tons of anti-Trump responses and mockery. Some protesters asked Trump where they could pick up their checks.

Thousands of protesters hit the streets across the country in what have been called "Not My President" demonstrations, some of which reportedly got too rowdy.

ABC News notes that the Portland Police tweeted:

"Due to extensive criminal and dangerous behavior, protest is now considered a riot. Crowd has been advised."

"Police are taking reports of attacks on drivers and vandalism during the protest."

"Crowd throwing projectiles at police. Significant damage to area car lot."

KATU, a Portland news station, tweeted: "Rioters smash car windows at Broadway Toyota dealership," and posted a link to its Facebook page where viewers could watch the vandalism live.

ABC News reports that hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside Trump Tower in New York City with signs that said: "Not My President" and "Divided States of America."

The Next Generation Action Network organized a protest in Dallas, where there were three arrests, and issued this statement before it began:

As we wrap our minds around this failed attempt at democracy that we as a country have witnessed in this election, and brace ourselves as Americans for a new Republican commander-in-chief with a majority Republican House and Senate; we are even more strengthened in our resolve to fight. Most everything out of the Trump campaign has been divisive and contrary to those values written in the U.S. Constitution.

Protesters also gathered outside newly-opened Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and held signs that said: "Not Our President" and "Trump is a racist."
