Trump attacks Obama in a whiny and delusional three-day Twitter rant.
On Friday, January 20th, Donald J. Trump will be sworn into the oval office. One would think that the president-elect's time would be meticulously used developing policies and simply preparing for the immense task at hand that is President of The United States. But instead, he has once again taken to Twitter to voice his concerns and go after an individual for opposing him.
This time, the individual he has honed in on is President Obama, in reply to comments the president had made in an interview released in which he expressed his confidence of winning a third term, if allowed. Though the president's exact words on the matter did not mention Trump and solely stated his confidence in his vision and that he was, "Confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could have mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Trump took offense to the statement and decided to tweet about it over a three-day span.
It appears Trump's first tweet regarding the incident was posted on Boxing day, and he very clearly sets his sights on Obama and his administration.
President Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me. He should say that but I say NO WAY! - jobs leaving, ISIS, OCare, etc.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2016
A day later, after posting tweets glorifying his Donald J. Trump foundation, he felt the need to reinforce his earlier statement with the tweet below.
President Obama campaigned hard (and personally) in the very important swing states, and lost.The voters wanted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 27, 2016
Then he goes on to thank himself for the point-over-point surge in the US Consumer Confidence Index.
The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index for December surged nearly four points to 113.7, THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS! Thanks Donald!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2016
And two days after the initial tweet he decided to return to the topic again, this time to proclaim himself as the victim.
Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks.Thought it was going to be a smooth transition - NOT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2016
Though Trump seems to be confident that he would have beaten President Obama, the annual 'Most Admired Man' poll from Gallup reveals that Obama beat Trump by seven percent margin for the title. With only a few short weeks left until inauguration day, let us hope that the president-elect puts twitter down and focuses on more important issues.
