This past week was the one year anniversary of when Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. To mark the occasion, Trump “triggered” bitter liberals with a photo that he posted on social media.
Freedom Daily reported that Trump celebrated the anniversary of his win by thanking the “deplorables” who made his “Electoral College landslide victory” possible.
“Congratulations to all of the ‘DEPLORABLES’ and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!” Trump wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of him and his top aides aboard Air Force One flashing thumbs-up signs for the camera

Those posing with Trump in the photo are White House communications director Hope Hicks, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, White House senior adviser and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, personal aide and special assistant to the president John McEntee, and White House social media director Dan Scavino.
Trump is in China at the moment as part of a 13 day trip to Asia. He has already visited Japan and South Korea as part of the trip, and will also travel to Vietnam and the Philippines.
While Trump was in South Korea, a liberal reporter tried to confront him over last Sunday’s shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Trump, however, wasn’t having any of it.
Conservative 101 reported that instead of focusing on the crucial international issues, such as the conflict with North Korea, that Trump is addressing during this trip, one reporter tried to shame Trump for the shooting. The reporter asked if he was thinking about implementing “extreme vetting” for people who wished to legally purchase forearms.
“You know you’re bringing up a situation that probably shouldn’t be discussed too much right now — we could let a little time go by,” Trump began. “But it’s OK, if you feel that’s an appropriate question, even though we’re in the heart of South Korea, I will certainly answer your question.”
“If you did what you’re suggesting there would have been no difference three days ago, and you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun or a rifle in his truck and shoot him, and hit him and neutralize him,” Trump continued. “I can only say this: If he didn’t have a gun, instead of having 26 dead, you would’ve had hundreds more dead. So that’s the way I feel about it. Not gonna help.”
The reporter, clearly embarrassed at being chastened, feebly asked Trump if he was “considering any kind of gun control policy going forward.”
“When you look at the city with the strongest gun laws in our nation, is Chicago. And Chicago is a disaster. It’s a total disaster,” Trump fired back. “Just remember, if this man didn’t have a gun or a rifle, you would be talking about a much worse situation in the great state of Texas.”
