Donald Trump Has Russian Goof-Up In Bizarre Tweet Thanking Himself
President Donald Trump on Saturday sent off a tweet thanking himself Saturday for the 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.
That might look like the Twitter link for The Wall Street Journal — but the real one for the newspaper is @WSJ. The one Trump tagged is a Russian account (with tweets in Russian) made to appear to be the American newspaper. It’s also apparently defunct. It issued the last of its 66 tweets in 2013, according to Bloomberg News.
The tweet was later modified to include the actual link to the Journal after people mocked the president for his Russian goof-up.
Stock Market is on track to have the best June in over 50 years! Thank you Mr. President! @WSJ
