Donald Trump spent his Saturday morning on Twitter, gloating about his presidency while comparing himself to former President Abraham Lincoln.
Trump started his tweet by quoting former GOP lawmaker Newt Gingrich who said that no president has been treated more unfairly by the media since Lincoln.
He then went on to gloat that he has accomplished more than any other president in his first two years in office.
“.@newtgingrich just stated that there has been no president since Abraham Lincoln who has been treated worse or more unfairly by the media than your favorite President, me! At the same time there has been no president who has accomplished more in his first two years in office!”

Twitter users decided to bash the president for his wild claims. Here are some of the best responses:
How can you claim to be being treated "unfairly" when you cheated to win an election. You illegally paid off a porn star so that she wouldn't tell the world you slept with her when married to Melania. You were planning to build a Trump tower in Russia during the election!

Yeah I agree. I recall watching CNN tear apart Lincoln's emancipation proclamation in January of 1863. Such Fakes News.
Get real Donnie. Stop comparing yourself to one of the greatest Presidents this nation has ever had. You rank #45

That’s because no president ever has been as crooked, corrupt and treasonous as you. And yes… you’ve accomplished more than any president ever in terms of damaging our principles, rule of law and democracy…and our standing on the world stage… #Trump

1) You are not my favorite president!
2) You are a traitor, money launderer and pussy grabber.
3) That‘s why you‘re being treated badly.

Who is he talking to? His reflection? His approval rating is only 38%, and of those how many would rate him as their favourite President?
He is becoming more bizarre by the day.

Newt Gingrich obviously forgot about President Obama who had every single thing obstructed for 6 years and was unfairly bashed by Fox News relentlessly. Republican hypocrisy on full display. This is what change looks like pic.twitter.com/Xn5a0hxsuX

Newt Gingrich is a hateful old has-been who owes his revenue stream to you having dragged him out of the dustbin of history so is anyone really surprised that he spends every waking moment flattering you with undeserved praise

Trump likes Newt because they both openly cheated on their wives. Trump cheated on Melania with two women (Stormy and Karen McDougall) right after their son Baron was born. Newt cheated on his wife she was dying of cancer. Both are vile men: https://t.co/sRNxhKEcyc

Whining and self-pity are two traits that will never be attributed to Lincoln. You’re an embarrassment to the office of President of the United States of America.

Hmmm Obama was treated pretty poorly (including you spewing racist birther lies) and 4 Presidents were assassinated while in office. That’s pretty bad treatment if you ask me.

It took America 240 years to become the guiding light of the world. It took you only 2 years to destroy everything.
