One example is a Thursday night tweet showing a flip in the way he addressed the people who are protesting the election, going from criticizing them to praising their passion in a span of 12 hours.
He initially complained about the "professional protesters" who he claimed were being "incited by the media."
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2016
But this morning he lauded the demonstrators' “passion for our great country.”
Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2016
Also, the initial tweet stands in contrast to some of his previous statements about a “rigged” election process.
He praised the election as "very open and successful" but he doesn't acknowledge that he talked for weeks and months about the "rigged" election and electoral process. He regularly talked about voter fraud during his campaign speeches and urged his supporters to be on the lookout for suspicious activity because he said it was so corrupt.
He also frequently tweeted about the "rigged election."
Voter fraud! Crooked Hillary Clinton even got the questions to a debate, and nobody says a word. Can you imagine if I got the questions?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2016
Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day. Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2016
The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places - SAD— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016
And in a possible hint of things to come, Trump also updated his followers on his plans for the day.
Busy day planned in New York. Will soon be making some very important decisions on the people who will be running our government!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2016
