Trump Tweets Meme Of Himself Playing Violin And ‘Nero’ Is Now Trending

“Nero” is trending on Twitter after Donald Trump tweeted a meme showing him playing violin with his eyes closed and seemingly relaxed amid mounting concerns of the global spread of the novel coronavirus, drawing comparisons to the Roman conqueror among his critics online.

The meme, which was initially shared by White House social media director Dan Scavino, was captioned: “My next piece is called nothing can stop what’s coming.”

When Trump retweeted the post, he captioned the tweet: “Who knows what this means, but it sounds good to me!”

In the hours since, droves of his critics have seized on the post, which they have likened to artwork of Nero fiddling as Rome burned.

A number of his critics particularly called out the president for promoting the meme amid fears over the international outbreak of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.

The viral reactions eventually prompted “Nero” to trend on Twitter Monday morning as the Trump administration continues to field pressure from the public and Democrats amid the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more 100,000 across the globe and killed over 3,000.
