Donald Trump sends first tweet as POTUS, and people are FURIOUS


It was the result Clinton campaigners were dreading, but as of this morning, Donald J Trump is the new President of United States.

And while Twitter has been awash with posts deriding American society for voting in an openly racist, sexist and misogynistic individual with no political or military experience, the man himself hadn't taken to social media… until now.

Nine hours after his last tweet, the Republican paid tribute to the momentous event in American history and vowed to unite the county.

"Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before," read the tweet.

And while it has racked up a staggering 50,000 likes in less than half an hour, social media users have wasted no time questioning the validity of Trump's sentiments.

""We"* *except from everyone, wo is not a white American man," responded one Twitter user.

"Obama to Trump is the worst downgrade ever. Give the world back to the dinosaurs #RIPAmerica," added another.

Referencing the countless racist remarks and xenophobic comments Trump made during the course of his presidential campaign, another individual replied: "Hey Sir, I am a Muslim and I would to report a man working in the Oval office responsible for spreading hate speech."

This morning's result brings to an end one of the most controversial US presidential campaign in history.
