President Donald Trump waited until Sunday morning to address the massive Women’s Marches that took place across America and the world on Saturday.

First, he tweeted this: “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.”

About an hour and a half later, he followed up with another tweet, saying: “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.”

Officials in Washington, D.C. estimate half a million people participated in the demonstration there. Similar marches and rallies were held in more than 600 other cities, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and Boston.
