Another day, another fantastic tweet from the president of the United States.

The Donald is known for his freewheeling style on Twitter, managing to send out little bursts of thought into the social media sphere no matter where he is, like calling Sadiq Khan a ‘stone-cold loser’ or claiming the moon is ‘a part of Mars‘.

After his recent trip to the UK to meet with the royal family, the government and whoever else was contractually obliged to be in his presence, Trump tweeted a message which to seemed to brag about all the high-profile peeps he meets and what they talk about.

Trump’s hastily deleted tweet read:

I meet and talk to “foreign governments” every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about “Everything!” Should I immediately…..

That’s right. The. Prince. Of. Whales.

I really love this tweet because it seems POTUS has gone to so much trouble while composing his message – the punctuation is just brilliant, the quote marks around ‘foreign governments’ and the fact they talk about ‘everything’. It may just be me, but I can’t help picture someone making these air quote signs sarcastically, as if ‘foreign governments’ don’t exist…

The followup tweet read:

….call the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again. With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media. They purposely leave out the part that matters.

The crux of Trump’s message was in reference to an interview he gave to ABC News, in which he said he wouldn’t necessarily alert the FBI if a foreign government offered him information on a rival in the 2020 presidential election. Failure to report attempted interference in a US election is illegal under campaign finance law, however.

When asked whether he would accept such information, or pass it on to the FBI, Trump said, via Metro:

I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening.

If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] “we have information on your opponent,” I think I’d want to hear it.

And perhaps if the Prince of Whales called with information about how all marine life are going to vote? I wonder if that falls under the FBI’s remit…
