Netizens react to Trump’s tweet
President Donald Trump’s tweet received mixed responses from Twitter users. Many agreed with him, but several also slammed him for his tweet.
Several fired back at Trump and claimed that the country is already in depression under his leadership. Another agreed that the U.S. is in depression as per definition under the current administration and it will result in recession.
“We are currently in the TRUMP DEPRESSION. Biden saved our economy once and he will do it again,” one commented.
However, many also defended Trump. One even responded to those who claimed that the country is in depression.
“First we arent in a depression and secondly our economy has been slowed because of a pandemic!! Not trump! Before the pandemic started our economy was booming like it hadn’t in years. So please don’t make false statements! Thanks,” @realsportsguy85 replied.
Netizens debate about the economy
Many also chose to support Donald Trump because, for them, he boosted the economy. One said Trump build more jobs and opportunities and help the economy recover since the great depression.
Meanwhile, many disagreed and stressed that it wasn’t Trump’s work that the economy remains strong despite the pandemic. One said he only inherited it from former President Barack Obama. However, another also insisted that Trump inherited a poor economy from Obama.
Another user said Trump did not build the economy, but Obama-Biden and the American people did. The same netizen also claimed that Trump ballooned the deficit and crashed the economy and millions are unemployed due to his negligence.
