Donald Trump has upped his game when it comes to Twitter antics...
By tweeting an edited Biden campaign message.Just when you thought Trump's Twitter account couldn't get any more chaotic, I know.
As the elections loom, Trump seems to be grasping at straws...And he will now seemingly do anything to garner attention and, ultimately, a reaction.
He may have finally taken things too far, however...
Because, following his latest Biden attack, people are seriously disgusted.
@realDonaldTrump This is one of the most disgusting things Trump has ever tweeted. Who are the other people feature… https://t.co/YuH6kaUz1l— MURRAY🧢🇺🇸 (@MURRAY🧢🇺🇸)1602640505.0
Now, it's been a whirlwind few weeks in the world of American politics.It was confirmed on October 2nd that the President and the First Lady, Melania Trump, had been diagnosed with the virus that has already killed over 208,000 Americans.
Trump tweeted this...Though, at this time, he didn't give any further details regarding his and Melania's symptoms.
Immediately after his diagnosis, the President went into self-isolation...
And floods of well-wishes for him and the First lady began pouring in from all around the world.
@realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS We have your back President Trump!!! Get well soon 🇺🇸— oregon4TRUMP (@oregon4TRUMP)1601614527.0
But on the other hand...
Lots of angry and spiteful messages were thrown at the pair following their diagnosis.
@realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS I just can’t be sad. 200,000 Americans have died and he hasn’t shed one tear. That’s 67 9/… https://t.co/jY0xtfdE63— Keller Keller (@Keller Keller)1601615591.0
Many laughed at the irony of his diagnosis...
Considering that the President has done nothing but downplay this pandemic.
@realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS Now it’s “WE” will get through this together? Wasn’t it “them” and “us”, red and blue, jus… https://t.co/g14SaslUlA— 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓵𝓵𝔂 𝕨𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕤 𝕒 𝕞𝕒𝕤𝕜 😷 (@𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓵𝓵𝔂 𝕨𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕤 𝕒 𝕞𝕒𝕤𝕜 😷)1601625335.0
But many people were, quite rightfully, feeling concerned about Trump's chances of surviving the deadly virus...Because even though it has a fairly steady survival rate, seventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.
And, just days after his diagnosis, our fears were confirmed.After receiving a cocktail of drugs as a "precautionary measure", Trump was transported to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre.
However, he gave off the impression that he was extremely unaffected by the virus.Trump gave a video update from the hospital, in which he praised the "incredible" Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and revealed that he had "met some of the soldiers" and was planning a "surprise" visit.
And, of course, nothing can keep the President hospitalized for too long.After a mere 2 days, he tweeted this: "I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"
Now, telling a country to not be afraid of a virus that has killed 200,000 Americans is an extremely reckless thing to say...
And, of course, people were not happy with his choice of announcement.
@realDonaldTrump Tell that to the 220,000 people who died from #COVID19 #OnYourWatch and their families @POTUS— Greg Rickard (@Greg Rickard)1601969132.0
But Trump's dangerous outlook on the virus isn't the only thing pressing on people's minds...What does this mean for his presidential campaign?
Well, he has been plowing full steam ahead with his campaign efforts...And he seems to be favoring one method of gaining votes... Bashing and criticizing his opponent, Joe Biden, on Twitter.
Firstly, he claimed that Biden has dementia.In a now-deleted tweet, Trump slammed Biden as having never been a "nice or kind guy", before claiming he has dementia. Even by Trump's standards, that's a low blow.
And now, just as we're coming to terms with his dementia accusations...Trump's twitter alter-ego has reared it's ugly head once more.
As you may have guessed, Trump has played on his dementia jibe...By editing (badly, might I add) a Biden campaign poster to look like a residential care poster.
As I said, it's utterly outrageous, even for Trump's standards...
And it didn't take long for the Twitter community to voice their disgust.
