Like the rest of the country, Donald Trump could not escape the news that millions of people in major cities marched for the rights of women and against the new president's sexist, racist, xenophobic, ableist and islamophobic proposals and rhetoric. And in true Trump fashion, the former reality TV star took to Twitter to respond.

“Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote,” he asked.



Trump’s implication that Americans didn’t go to the polls and vote against him is just straight-up false. The president, who took home the electoral, college, did not receive the majority vote. In fact, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton garnered 4.3 million more votes than Trump, the highest of any losing candidate. In other words, the protestors did vote and they are continuing to show up for the cause despite the major election loss.

Trump, however, didn’t stop there. He also stated that celebs, who chastised the president, “hurt [the] cause badly” and that he didn’t agree with the protest but understood it was the people’s right.

“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,” he said.
