[Dec 2016) "Donald Trump arrived in Alabama on the last stop of his 'Thank You' tour, where the President-elect won in a landslide over opponent Hillary Clinton.
Trump was greeted by a number of high school girls known as the Azalea Trail Maids, who are chosen every year to serve as ambassadors for Mobile in
their pastel antebellum outfits."
