Donald Trump News: Ex-POTUS wildly on Twitter over cryptic “sad” statement | World


The former US president has again become the target of criticism on Twitter after he released a statement containing only three words. Mr. Trump, who left the White House earlier this year, wrote: “1776, not 1619! ”

The statement appears to be a reference to the New York Times “1619 Project”.

The project seeks to “reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”

In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, Mr. Trump said he intended to ban critical race theory.

He said, “We are going to completely fund and ban critical race theory. 1776, not 1619, if you don’t mind.

“And if government-run schools teach children to hate their country, we will demand the choice of schools we already have.

“If you listen to the media or watch the evening news, our country has gone really badly.

“All we’re talking about is race. That’s all they talk about. Race. The whole show – run, run.

Mr Trump no longer has access to his Twitter account after the social media giant banned it in the wake of the Capitol Hill riot over fears he would incite more violence.

However, a social media user shared the 45th president’s statement, eliciting scathing responses from his detractors.

One person said, “Is he suffering from some kind of mental depression? “

Another user added: “Such a sad form of communication. “

A third commenter wrote: “Why doesn’t he just tweet that… oh wait lol. Now I remember. “

Some have speculated that the short statement could be Mr. Trump’s secretive means of inciting an insurgency among his supporters.
