The internet reacts in horror at the 500th day of Trump’s presidency

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to celebrate his 500th day since taking the oath of office, rattling off a list of his accomplishments and near accomplishments.

However, a number of people online didn’t feel the same celebratory emotions.

“This is my 500th. Day in Office and we have accomplished a lot – many believe more than any President in his first 500 days. Massive Tax & Regulation Cuts, Military & Vets, Lower Crime & Illegal Immigration, Stronger Borders, Judgeships, Best Economy & Jobs EVER, and much more…” the president wrote in a series of tweets. “….We had Repeal & Replace done (and the saving to our country of one trillion dollars) except for one person, but it is getting done anyway. Individual Mandate is gone and great, less expensive plans will be announced this month. Drug prices coming down & Right to Try!”



Trump—and thousands of his most ardent supporters online—were in a celebratory mood.

But many people on Twitter didn’t share his warm and fuzzy feelings.

Some people replied to the president, claiming he was “illegitimate,” and “traitorous,” while others said they couldn’t believe it had only been 500 days since he took office.

The 500-day mark will officially come at 12 pm ET on Monday afternoon.
