Donald Trump on Friday tweeted about several protests that erupted across the United States following his victory on Election Day.

Trump, who has been relatively sedated in the weeks leading up to Nov. 8, wrote: “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”

Nine hours later, he wrote about the protesters’ enthusiasm.

“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!” Trump tweeted at 6 a.m. local time.

He later tweeted about his schedule, saying: “Busy day planned in New York. Will soon be making some very important decisions on the people who will be running our government!”

On Thursday, Trump met with President Obama at the White House, with the two describing the meeting as cordial.

“My No. 1 priority in the next two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our President-elect is successful,” Obama said, reported CNN.

Obama also told Trump: “If you succeed, the country succeeds.”

“Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times,” Trump said.
