Donald Trump savaged on Twitter over cryptic statement – ‘Sad form of communication’

The former US President has once again become the target of criticism on Twitter after issuing a statement containing only three words. Mr Trump, who exited the White House at the beginning of the 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 made during Sunday’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Mr Trump said he intended to ban critical race theory.

He said: “We will completely defund and bar critical race theory. 1776, not 1619, if you don’t mind.

“And if government run schools are going to teach children to hate their country, we will demand school choice that we already have.

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

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

Mr Trump no longer has access to his Twitter account after the social media giant banned him following the Capitol Hill riot over concerns he would incite further violence.

However, one social media user shared the 45th President’s statement, prompting scathing replies from his critics.

One person said: “Is he having some sort of mental breakdown?”

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

A third commenter wrote: “Why doesn’t he just tweet this out… Oh wait lol. Now I remember.”

Some theorised the short statement could be Mr Trump’s covert way of inciting an insurrection among his supporters.

Adblock test (Why?)

‘Sad reality’ Lorraine Kelly left disappointed as she's unqualified for jobs away from ITV

“Steve will be filming for my show, and I’ll be writing about the journey. I will, of course, be visiting his grave, raising a glass and toasting ‘the boss’.”

Lorraine shared her icy swim with ITV viewers at the time, as she stripped down to her bikini and braved the cold waters.

She said on the programme: “This is a first for me, this is Antarctica… and I’m going in.”

Lorraine could then be seen removing her furry hat and warm coat to reveal a pretty bikini before taking the plunge.

UFC’s McGregor tells Mayweather to ‘f*ck off’

Conor McGregor has weighed in on the shocking brawl between Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul, directing crude insults at his former opponent while claiming he is in the “drain” and would make far more money through a “real” fight.

Sporting icon Mayweather and YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul were involved in a huge scrap after the 24-year-old stole the veteran’s cap when they came face-to-face at the press conference for the former champion’s fight with Paul’s brother, Logan.

That was all the invitation McGregor, who changed disciplines from MMA to boxing to lose to Mayweather in one of the most lucrative fights of all time in 2017, needed to accuse his old rival of acting shamefully.

“What the f*ck is Floyd at?” asked the UFC megastar, directing his initial question at Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

“The kid [Paul] curled up, didn’t fight back once, and Floyd is still running around acting the tough guy.”

That amounted to an interesting interpretation of a situation in which Paul had placed himself center stage at a press call that was not his own, whispering to a camera that he intended to thieve Mayweather’s cap before duly carrying out the incendiary deed.

“The kid actually just pulled this shambles of a situation Floyd is in out of the drain for him,” McGregor said, suggesting that Mayweather needs the money and is picking easy opponents.

“He should thank him. It’s embarrassing. Pro to pro, it’s embarrassing. He will not scratch 10 million for this fight and he knows it.

“It was canceled once already [in January, before being rescheduled for June 6]. The world is watching this on Twitter. He’d fight a half-decent pro and command 20 million upwards, yet it’s this sh*t.”

McGregor signed off his latest rant by alluding to the slap he placed on Mayweather’s head during the fierce press conferences that preceded their bout.

“Whatever way you spin this, it’s sad,” he said. “Fight someone for real, on your record, or f*ck off, mate. Slap head.”

Paul responded “gotcha hat” – the words he said to Mayweather as he swiped his cap, and which he has already turned into branding for merchandise in a logo that he seems certain to endlessly trot out over forthcoming months.

The loudmouth took to social media to show fans that he has already had the cringeworthy catchphrase tattooed on his arm, while others backing McGregor in comments on his post included UFC hall-of-famer Urijah Faber and Dillon Danis, one of the Irishman’s teammates.

“They should thank for you for even posting this,” said the man known for his explosive part in the aftermath to McGregor’s defeat against Khabib Nurmagomedov, responding to his idol in typically sycophantic style.
