Donald Trump latest: Team Trump trolls Clinton on her birthday with resurfaced tweet | World | News

Mrs Clinton turned 72 on Saturday. On her 69th birthday, just 14 days before the 2016 Presidential election, she tweeted a photo of herself as a young girl. The caption attached to the image was: “Happy birthday to this future president.”

Team Trump retweeted and replied to the three year old tweet with a thirty nine second video.

The video showed television coverage from CNN of the results.

The voice piece announces Trump had won the electoral college votes in Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, North Dakota, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, Missouri, Ohio, Idaho, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Utah, Wisconsin and Arizona.

The shot then cuts to cheering crowds.


A female reporter interjects to say Mrs Clinton was calling Trump to concede.

The clip ends with Trump giving a thumbs up, flanked by his Vice-President Mike Pence and his youngest son Barron Trump.

Though Mrs Clinton gained 2.1 percent more of the votes than Trump, Trump secured 304 electoral votes to Mrs Clinton’s 227.

Each state in the US plus the District of Colombia has an electoral college, a body of electors mandated to award the states votes in the election.

Some have speculated he may poll better if he replaces Mr Pence as his running mate.

Commentators have suggested Nikki Haley, who was his ambassador to the UN and Governor of South Carolina would result in him fairing better.

Mrs Haley has dismissed the suggestion.

Trump is favourite to win the Republican nomination.

According to Oddschecker, he is favourite to beat his Democrat opponent.

Bookies think he will face Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Mrs Clinton is fifth favourite to become Democrat candidate again despite not running.

Ms Warren and Mrs Clinton are separated by former Vice-President Joe Biden, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Mrs Clinton was previously a New York Senator and Secretary of State.
