Trump just insulted Americans in an antagonistic New Year’s Eve tweet

- Desember 31, 2017

In an already controversial tweet, Trump has once again struck at his “enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media” in a tweet that was perhaps – at some point – intended to celebrate the onset of 2018.

The President has stuck to his brand of antagonistic and unrestrained tweeting throughout his first year in office, despite promises to be “very restrained” with Twitter before taking office.

“I’m going to do very restrained. If I use it at all, I’m going to be very restrained,” Trump said in a 60 Minutes interview in November of 2016.

Trump claims that he uses social media out of necessity, to “fight a VERY dishonest and unfair ‘press,’ now often referred to as Fake News Media.”

Of course, the reality of Trump’s presidency is that he makes approximately 5.5 misleading or outright false claims per day, now approaching a staggering 2,000 lies since taking office. While the mainstream media has sought to hold him accountable, Trump has been relegated to either his own social media platforms or Fox News to perpetuate his falsehoods.

However, after nearly a year in office, with a dismal approval rating and an ongoing – and rapidly progressing – investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump’s brand of incendiary, baseless rhetoric is increasingly falling on deaf ears.

With midterms fast approaching, 2018 certainly promises to be a “great year for America”—but not for you, President Trump.
