One of Trump's most controversial talking points used against Clinton was over her age and stamina. Trump even went as far as to promote debunked stories and conspiracy theories about Clinton's health which gained traction with his supporters. Fast forward six months to present day and Trump is facing irony in regards to the issues of health and age. On Friday, Trump started his first international trip as commander in chief by spending time in Saudi Arabia.

"He's just an exhausted guy," the official said. The remarks came as critics pushed back against the president over his speech on terrorism in Saudi Arabia, where Trump took a more modest tone in contrast to his hard-line campaign remarks about Islam and Muslims that have been a corner stone of his political message over the last two years.

In response to the news that Donald Trump was getting tired at the start of his trip, social media users weren't too kind in their response.

"I prefer Presidents who aren't so exhausted after reading off a teleprompter for 30 minutes that they're forced to take a nap," one tweet read.

"Dude, America has been exhausted for months," another Twitter user added.

He should take a 3 1/2 year holiday and catch up on his rest!" an additional tweet said. "For a 70 yr old guy who doesn't exercise and eats a crap diet this is not shocking. Will have to see how next days go," another Twitter user pointed out. Negative reactions continued to pour in as social media critics of Donald Trump appeared to have a field day with the news.
