President Donald Trump jabbed Democrats, saying they are getting very "strange" for a proposal to eliminate the Electoral College and change the size of the Supreme Court.

Trump's comments came in a tweet shortly after midnight Wednesday.

He wrote:

"The Democrats are getting very 'strange.' They now want to change the voting age to 16, abolish the Electoral College, and Increase significantly the number of Supreme Court Justices. Actually, you've got to win it at the Ballot Box!"

His post on Twitter came after Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is seeking the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, said Monday she would support abolishing the Electoral College. And some Democrat candidates have also backed lowering the voting age and adding more Supreme Court justices, Newsweek reported.

Trump's middle-of-the-night post followed on the heels of a pair of tweets from late Tuesday that seemed to oppose the idea of eliminating the Electoral College:

"Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It's like training for the 100-yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to . . .

"....just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power – & we can't let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A."

His tweets signal a turnabout from 2012, when he called the Electoral College "a disaster for democracy."
