President-elect Donald Trump is back on Twitter to punch at one of his favorite targets: the mainstream media.

“Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!” he wrote last night after meeting with President Obama, Speaker Paul Ryan, and Sen. Mitch McConnell in Washington, D.C.

Trump also posted his thoughts about the meeting with Obama.

“A fantastic day in D.C. Met with President Obama for first time. Really good meeting, great chemistry. Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!” he wrote.

This morning, Trump tweeted again, thanking protesters for their “passion” and vowing that he would bring the country together.

“Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country,” he wrote. “We will all come together and be proud!”

The three tweets suggest that as president, Donald Trump may utilize his powerful Twitter account to go over the heads of reporters and strike back against his critics.

Trump has also changed his Twitter profile to “president-elect of the United States.”
