He also found time to retweet several memes that supported him and his agenda.
The memes came from Twitter accounts that routinely post content depicting the president in a positive light: @TrueAmerica1st and @The_Trump_Train. This isn’t the first time the president has retweeted favorable memes. Last year he retweeted a doctored GIF of him body-slamming someone during a WWE appearance with the CNN logo edited onto their face.
The president particularly liked the posts coming from @TrueAmerica1st, retweeting three pro-Trump memes posted by the account in rapid succession.
The first meme used a picture of Charlie Brown, who says former President Barack Obama was taking credit for “how well the country is doing under Trump.”
Trump then got a bit spiritual, retweeting @TrueAmerica1st’s post that thanked God for the outcome of the 2016 election.
The president then decided to retweet a post that highlighted a quote from his address to Congress in February 2017.
Finally, the president decided to mix things up a bit and retweet @The_Trump_Train, which also addressed the national anthem, a topic the president tweeted about as recently as this weekend.
Perhaps the retweeting of several flattering memes was a way for Trump to combat the recent negative news that has surrounded his administration in recent days–including an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times where a “senior official” said they were part of a “resistance inside the Trump administration” that has tried to keep the president in check.
