The Delegates, Donald is a photoshop meme based on a photograph of United States Senator Ted Cruz featuring a variety of internal monologue-style captions assertively demanding the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to "hand over" the delegates he had secured during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
The original photograph of Senator Ted Cruz purposefully walking down the congressional hallway on his way to the Senate floor was taken by Washington D.C.-based photojournalist Bill Clark on April 29th, 2014.
The earliest known mention of the conversational phrase "The Delegates, Donald," as in "Hand over the delegates, Donald Trump," can be found in the title of a 4chan thread submitted to the /pol/ (politically incorrect) board on May 11th, 2016.
On July 18th, 2016, an anonymous 4chan user submitted a thread titled "Donald, The delegates…" with the photograph of Ted Cruz to the /pol/ board. Since then, there have been dozens of similar threads with variations on the original meme started and archived on 4chan.
