President-elect Donald Trump has been notably restrained since his general election victory, not making his presence known on social media with his usual signature lines and mostly dealing in platitudes.
But late Thursday, Trump couldn't contain his feelings about the protesters who have taken to the streets objecting Trump's presidency. He took to Twitter to vent about the situation.
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!

Trump has been criticized in the past for allegedly priming his supporters for civil unrest by purporting that the system was "rigged."
