Watch | Donald Trump's best performing tweets from his @RealDonaldTrump account this week
Welcome to This Week in Tweets, where we break down the worst and best of POTUS' tweets from his @RealDonaldTrump account.
The tweet that got the most retweets since February 25th was this one:
The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2017
That tweet sent last Saturday got 61 thousand retweets and sparked criticism from those who said his figures weren’t quite right. And this might surprise you but the numbers are technically correct, the debt has dropped since Trump took office, but the devil is in the details the debt level rises and falls all the time but the overall trend has not changed and that is the national debt level continues to rise.
So which got the most replies?
Well it was this one from Sunday.
Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2017
This tweet had more than 53 thousand replies.
Actually, it's #RealNews put out by our own intelligence agencies, and you're calling it fake to mask your own collusion.— Kelly Scaletta (@KellyScaletta) February 26, 2017
Like this one
YES! The Democrats are MASKING THEIR DEFEAT! Because without their crazy RUSSIA TALK everyone would KNOW THAT THEY LOST!— Christoph Rehage (@crehage) February 26, 2017
And this one
So why did people interact with this tweet so much? Well, I don’t have to tell you that Trump’s relationship with Russia is big deal especially due to some of the accusations that have been flying around lately though this tweet came out before news of Jeff Sessions meetings with the Russian Ambassador came out.
