Donald Trump has not been able to let go of the November presidential election. The fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by three million seemed to stick in the craw of the president. Tuesday, the White House director of social media, Dan Scavino, tweeted a so-called six-month anniversary celebration of Clinton’s concession.
Scavino said that he would release the November 9 phone call at 2:30 in the morning from Clinton’s trusted right-hand woman Huma Abedin to Trump’s current counsel to the president and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, according to Yahoo News:
‘Polls cell phone – of Huma’s call at 2:30 amE….6 months ago. I have on video & will share that in the near future.’

At this time, Scavino has not released a date for the unveiling.
This tweet was not on the official White House Twitter page. Instead, Scavino tweeted from his own personal account, but this was not the first time he has done something like this. Democrats criticized him for using his Twitter account to demand the defeat of a congressman guilty only of criticizing the man in the Oval Office. Ethics law forbid government employees from trying to influence elections.
Conway also used her personal Twitter account to respond to people who think Trump has not been able to let the election go:
‘Hey, @DanScavino, has EVERYONE “accepted the election results” yet?’

Conway wrote to Yahoo News saying Abedin contacted her prior to Clinton’s call of “congratulations AND concession” to Trump. The counsel to the president was emphatic that Trump’s administration does not think it has to continually remind people of the election, according to Yahoo News:
‘Aren’t you asking the wrong POTUS candidate/staff/movement?’
Trump’s administration relaunched its campaign website Tuesday. In an official press release Trump’s campaign planned to give people an “unique, behind the scenes view, Yahoo News said:”
‘Providing a unique experience for online visitors, the website will include: facts the mainstream media is hiding about policy positions and actions by President Trump; compelling, never-before-seen photos from recent campaign rallies and events featuring President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence; news announcements from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; and other materials that you won’t find anywhere
else in the media.’
