President Donald Trump took to his favorite social media platform early Sunday to troll the women protesters who marched in Saturday's Women's March on Washington that spilled over to major cities across the country.

Trump sarcastically tweeted shortly before 8 a.m. EST that he was "under the impression" that America just had an election.

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

Millions of women and protesters took to the streets of Washington D.C., and other major cities across the country and world on Saturday to protest Trump becoming president, including more than an estimated half million people in Washington alone.

During the events in Washington, major feminists figures, politicians and celebrities spoke, in addition to performances from major musicians and artists. Pop artist Madonna made headlines after she admitted on live television that she has been frequently thinking about blowing up the White House now that Trump resides in it.

Trump later took to Twitter Sunday morning to clarify that he respects Americans' First Amendment right to protest.

"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," Trump tweeted.
