Things wrong with Trump's Chelsea tweet

 article about what did donald trump actually say
Ivanka Trump was keeping her father's seat at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Sunday. Some people felt that the move was inappropriate. Whether it was or not, could be called a matter of taste, I guess. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it was perfectly normal. Trump himself said that "When I left Conference Room for short meetings with Japan and other countries, I asked Ivanka to hold seat. Very standard. Angela M agrees!"

Okay, let's go with that. I don't think it's a big thing. Even though it might look a bit weird. It's not a lunch with your board during the bring your daughter to work day.

But next the man tweeted that "If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother,as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!"

While for Trump it's just another afternoon with another tweet, and before tweeting, he's not usually thinking about what he's tweeting, let's look at it for a moment.

If we'd take it letter by letter, considering in previous Trump's tweets he and his press secretary have time and time again emphasised the importance of quotation marks or lack of them (even though, even then, lying about the existence or non-existence of them), we'd find out the following:

- He's saying that if Chelsea Clinton did what he did, the Fake media would say "Chelsea for president"
- By saying that, he's actually saying that while Ivanka was sitting in his seat, he was working on giving his country away. Good to know.
- When it comes to "Chelsea for president," he did say that only Fake News would say that. So he actually didn't say a thing about the media. I actually own a fake news site myself, openly fake news site The Daily Bonk, and when I publish something there, it would obviously be not be true. So, based on what he said, Fake News could say "Ivanka for president" as well. So?


Chelsea Clinton tweeted him back after seeing some of the same things - "Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not."
