President Donald Trump just dreamed up a campaign slogan that can only be described as “perfect.”
Perfect for Joe Biden, that is.
On Thursday morning, the president went on a Twitter rampage griping about whatever came to mind.
One tweet ― in all caps, naturally ― seemed to be driven by the public removal of a growing number of Confederate statues and flags amid anti-racism protests sparked by last month’s police killing of George Floyd:
“THOSE THAT DENY THEIR HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!”
THOSE THAT DENY THEIR HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 11, 2020
Trump may have been referring to Confederate artifacts, but many Twitter users noted that his admonition could also be taken as a warning against reelecting him.
And they pounced with glee on the president’s self-own.
So that's why you're repeating the Civil War. https://t.co/guXoqEhPpF
