Trump Thanks Himself For Stock Market Rally, Tags Fake Russian Twitter Account (Huffington Post link): President Donald Trump thanked himself Saturday in a tweet in the wake of a stock market rally — then tagged a fake Russian Twitter account. “Stock Market is on track to have the best June in over 50 years! Thank you Mr. President!” Trump tweeted, adding the tag: @WallStreetJour.
It’s also apparently defunct. It issued the last of its 66 tweets in 2013, Bloomberg reported. Twitter critics had a few things to say about Trump patting himself on the back — and the Russian goof-up:
"Remember the time the President of the United States tagged a Russian troll account for the Wall Street Journal? Oh yeah, that was just 2 minutes ago."
"Do we need to send Mr. President to a orthopedic? He may have dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back."
"Borrowing another $ Trillion this year to prop up the economy is not sustainable."
"Soooo... after posting the worst year in A DECADE, you wanna take credit for a good MONTH? After helping to manipulate the fluctuations with your insane tweets? Whatever you say, Spanky."
