More than one million people participated in women's marches around the globe, including in Washington, D.C.; Park City, Utah; New York; Los Angeles; Toronto; Budapest; and Mexico City.

President Donald Trump on Sunday responded to the women's marches around the world where millions of people, including celebrities, protested his presidency.

He tweeted early Sunday morning: "Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly."

Trump also added in a second tweet: "Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."

More than one million people participated in women's marches around the globe on the day after Trump's inauguration in locations including Washington, D.C.; Park City, Utah (at the Sundance Film Festival); New York; Los Angeles; Toronto; Budapest; and Mexico City.

Trump also commented on the TV ratings for his inauguration, which reached 30.6 million reviewers. He tweeted: "Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!"
