Trump Questions Women’s Marchers: ‘Why Didn’t These People Vote?’

President Donald Trump weighed in Sunday morning about the Women’s protest march against him.

“Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election!” Mr. Trump wrote. “Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.”

Shortly after his first tweet, The newly-installed US president then showed respect for the dissidents tweeting that “peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy.”

Starting his second full day in the White House, Trump, also tweeted about the television ratings for his inauguration on Friday.

Trump drew the third-biggest Nielsen ratings for an inauguration, after the first swearing-ins for President Ronald Reagan (about 42 million, in 1981) and President Barack Obama (about 38 million, in 2009).

While the march has seen a large number of people turn out for the protest, it is not exactly clear what they hope to accomplish. Reports of their cause(s) seem to be fractured, but at its core, it seems to have been spurred on by their interpretation of Trump’s rhetoric during the campaign, including disparaging comments about women journalists and politicians – including his election opponent, Hillary Clinton, whom he called a “nasty woman”.
