Trump Being Trolled All Over The Internet Over Russia Oval Office Photos And He’s Furious

Donald Trump held a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russia’s ambassador to the US at the White House the day after Trump decided to fire former FBI director James Comey.

After the Wednesday meeting, Russia’s news agency, TASS, posted photographs of the Oval Office meeting online, according to CNN.

The White House has expressed their anger for what TASS did.

“They tricked us,” an angry White House official said.

“That’s the problem with the Russians — they lie,” the official added.

The photos were used by Russians to troll Trump and the White House on social media.

The Russian Foreign Ministry posted a photo of Trump shaking hands with Lavrov on Twitter.

The foreign ministry also posted videos of Lavrov joking around and laughing about Comey’s firing.

According to CNN, the White House blocked U.S. reporters from taking photos at the meeting, stating that only White House and Russian photographers were allows to capture photos.

The official also fired back at critics who have questioned whether Trump should have met with Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office.

“It is ridiculous to say that an ambassador can’t meet with the President as part of a visit from a foreign minister. It’s standard practice,” the official said.
