The historic win by Country House in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday has President Donald Trump tweeting.

Social media was blowing up yesterday after the horse Maximum Security was disqualified from the Kentucky Derby 20 minutes after winning the race. A review of the race, decided that Maximum Security had interfered with other horses when coming around the final turn, making Country House, the 65-1 long shot, the winner.

Among those upset by the historic outcome of the race was Trump, tweeting this morning that, “The Kentucky Derby decision was not a good one.” He went on to say, “Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby – not even close!”

Some people on social media were making parallels between the outcome of the 2016 presidential race and the Kentucky Derby Triple Crown.
