The president elect tweeted on Thursday, "Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!"

President-elect Donald Trump is back on Twitter, taking on the protesters who have gathered in cities across the nation since his election.

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

Just hours later, Trump tweeted again, praising the "small groups of protesters" for their "passion."

Thousands have been gathering in cities from New York to Dallas to San Francisco to voice opposition to Trump's election.

Trump's complaint Thursday about the media echoes the rhetoric of his campaign, when he railed against the press as "disgusting" and "dishonest."

A few minutes earlier, Trump was more positive about his trip to Washington, tweeting: "A fantastic day in D.C. Met with President Obama for first time. Really good meeting, great chemistry. Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!"
