Donald Trump’s facing a really bad time on social media. If getting trolled just last week by a Saudi prince wasn’t enough, this time it’s his own tweet that’s come back to haunt him.

The boisterous real estate tycoon, hopeful of living in the White House, had in 2013 tweeted: “No one remembers who came in second,” quoting Walter Hagen.

With the Iowa caucus results being declared, and he losing to Ted Cruz, his detractors are having a field day on Twitter.

 

With about 99 per cent of the GOP vote in, Cruz was ahead of Trump 28 per cent to 24 per cent. Marco Rubio was at 23 per cent.

While Trump is expected to do well in New Hampshire, this defeat is clearly going to get to him for a long time.
