Surender Gupta- Now that he is US President-elect, Donald Trump seemed to make a comeback on Twitter, after reports that his staff had prevented him from the microblogging platform in the run-up to the elections. In a tweet, he kept up his attack on the media, and on protesters who have been making noises against him.
Trump took a shot at the ‘not my President’ demonstrations that have been held at a number of places across the country.
“Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
Trump’s tweet brought out the irony of the past few days. Trump himself had said during his campaign that he might not accept the result of the election. He had claimed that the elections had been rigged against him. But that was at a time when Hillary Clinton was considered the easy winner of the elections.
Trump had said he would accept the result only if he won, sparking off outrage with opponents claiming that he stood against the principles of democracy. It is now these very same opponents who are protesting Trump’s election, where he won a majority of electoral college votes even as Hillary seem on track to win the popular vote.
