Trump lays his cards on the table with Twitter rant
The reliability of Twitter is often questioned, but the micro-blogging site has firmly established one fact: Donald Trump is apoplectic with rage about the re-election of Barack Obama.
Over the course of a few tweets, the billionaire tycoon, who has campaigned vigorously for the Republicans, decried the election as a “travesty”, a “sham”, and a “disgusting injustice”.
An inspection of Mr Trump’s Twitter feed for the past 24 hours reveals he did a bit of last-minute canvassing yesterday – “ [The Romneys] love America. Let’s push them over the top today.”
As the result of the presidential election became apparent, “The Donald” directed his ire at Mr Obama and the entire US electoral system.
“He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election,” he tweeted, before calling for a national revolution. “The phoney electoral college made a laughing stock out of our nation. The loser won!” he raged. However, he deleted those tweets shortly afterwards, perhaps after it became apparent that Mr Romney had in fact failed to win the popular vote. Nonetheless, he demanded action: “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!”
He added: “Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.”
