YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) President-elect Donald J. Trump responded to protesters in Portland, Oregon Thursday night with a tweet implying that the protests were incited by the media.

Early Friday morning, Trump changed the tone of his message talking about the passion the protesters have for their country.

Some 4,000 protesters surged into the downtown Portland late Thursday night with chants like “we reject the president-elect!”

Officers began physically pushing back against the crowd that at times threw objects at them as midnight approached, arresting several people and using flash-bang devices and types of smoke or tear gas to force people to disperse.
