WASHINGTON, United States -- Donald Trump tweeted his thanks and congratulations to the millions of Americans who elected him president one year ago Wednesday, including the "deplorables" criticized by rival Hillary Clinton during their toxic campaign.
The tweet came hours after Democrats scored wins in several high-profile state and local elections, victories seen as a repudiation of Trump's combative politics.
"Congratulations to all of the 'DEPLORABLES' and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!" Trump posted on Twitter from China, where he is in the midst of his nearly two-week trip to Asia.
