Did Trump just make a ’69-nice’ joke on Twitter?

Nice.

President Donald Trump may have unintentionally stumbled into an infamous meme on Twitter when celebrating a poll that found 69 percent of people expect their finances to improve next year, by following up the statistic with “nice!” in a tweet.

“The Gallup Poll just announced that 69% of our great citizens expect their finances to improve next year, a 16 year high. Nice!” the president wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

Replying with “nice” to tweets with the number 69 in them is a common joke on Twitter.

In fact, it happens a lot.

Of course, Trump’s tweet about a Gallup poll was no different.

It was Trump’s predecessor, however, who may have kickstarted the Twitter meme.

And some people believed that Trump’s use of “nice” in a “69” tweet ended the meme for good.
